Although there were many variations observed during the site visits, the LC observed a striking convergence toward a set of management goals, principles, and values that are markedly different from the management practices of hierarchical bureaucracy that is still pervasive in large organizations today. Although there is no “one size fits all,” the site visits revealed a family resemblance among the goals, principles, and values of the companies visited. A universal feature of all the site visits was a recognition that achieving these benefits is dependent on the requisite leadership mindset. Where the management practices and methodologies were implemented without the requisite mindset, no benefits were observed. Individually, none of the observed management practices are new. What is new is the way that the new management goals, practices, and values constitute a coherent and integrated system, driven by and lubricated with a common leadership mindset.

During the 1990s, the dot-com boom initiated a massive revolution, led largely by retailers, that transformed the way in which companies reached their customers.
