What makes a company truly outstanding?
What is the secret sauce of delivering successful results year-on-year?
What is common to Asian Paints, HDFC Bank, Marico, Axis Bank and Berger Paints?
They are Unusual Companies, built by Unusual Billionaires. The Unusual Billionaires tells the story of seven, truly outstanding companies which delivered 10 per cent revenue growth over the last ten years and 15 per cent return on capital employed. In simple words, these companies defeated 5000 other public listed companies to deliver high growth while maintaining profitability year-on-year for the last decade.
How did these companies do it? Why couldn't this be reciprocated by other companies? What are they doing differently?
Saurabh Mukherjea, bestselling author of Gurus of Chaos, delivers an outstanding book with lessons to learn from these seven businesses. Mukherjea tells you why focusing on the core business could save a company's life or how giving control to top management could be a boon. Packed with these learnings are riveting corporate stories of how Hindustan Unilever made aggressive bids to buy Mariwala's business, but had to sell it to the same company in a few years, or how Page Industries found an exciting way to stop unionization at their manufacturing units. It also includes the turnaround of Axis Bank and the boardroom coup that led to its chairman's downfall, and how Vijay Mallya lost control of Asian Paints to the Dhingra Brothers.
These and many more makes this book a mandatory read for all corporate leaders to simulate and implement.
