It Was Never about the Ketchup!: The Life and Leadership Secrets of H. J. Heinz: One Life Can Make a Difference (Inglés) Tapa blanda – abr 2007
Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
In a world that has become increasingly complex, complicated and impersonal, it is easy to feel that each of our individual lives is relatively insignificant. But nothing could be further from the truth. Every life is unique! Each of us is created with the potential to make this world a better place because of our presence in it! The life of H. J. Heinz can inspire each of us to live a life that makes a difference. What makes his life so inspiring to me is his love for the common - the common place, the common man, today's common tasks and work. H. J. Heinz built an empire by doing common things uncommonly well! In the process, he left his mark in this world and left a legacy - a fortune - for generations to come. But his focus was never on his fortune. It never was about the ketchup!

I'm a small business owner and I love to read the stories and methodologies of successful business owners. It really doesn't matter the field or the size of the business, because I feel there is something to learn from anyone successful (and many times from people who aren't successful). The book is written to discuss mainly his philosophy of doing business and how it ties to his religious beliefs. It's important to understand the type of business he has created and that's hands on manufacturing of food products. Some of his basic philosophies are to create the best product you can and the product will sell itself. Another philosophy of his is to only expand in a natural economic way without overleveraging yourself. In other words, he began selling pickle products out of his basement, and only when demand became so great that he outgrew the basement, did he expand to a factory. Another philosophy of his was to hand pick your workers, treat them right, train them, and keep them. There was very little turnover with his employees (even through the recession) and once he handpicked an employee, he trained him carefully to perform every aspect of his job competently, and stuck with that employee. He also took care of his employees by providing them recreational facilites on site and believed that an employee should not have to worry about anything except how to get his job done in the most efficient manner. In return, his employees naturally produced more and had a greater sense of security and loyalty. Another of his philosophies was to treat all employees and people with respect and take the time to be friendly toward everyone. They said there was rarely a time, no matter how busy he was, when passing a child on the street, he would not take the time to speak. Another important philosophy of his was to know intimately every aspect of your business or job, no matter how unimportant it may seem. He trained everyone in his factory from the person who ran the trash compactor to the managers. He would know innately if you weren't doing your job correctly because he knew how to do it. He would respectfully ask if there was a better way for you to go about doing it and let you come up with the answer as if it were your idea. There was a story in the book when an employee (I believe he was in charge of running the trash compactor) was reprimanded by his manager for not doing his job correctly. He was able to say to the manager, "I am doing my job correctly. This is how Mr. Heinz trained me to do it". I came away after reading this book with a better, more natural way, of doing business that has helped me keep a long term outlook on things from a human perspective and understanding that it's not just dollars and cents that make you successful.

this book was written by one of my law school professors. I never knew much about Mr. Heinz but he was an interesting individual. It was an interesting way to teach integrity in business and in life.
