By Dr. John Psarouthakis, Founder and Former Chairman and CEO, JP Industries Inc. and Executive Editor, The Business Thinker.
I wrote a small book on my believe that “Better Makes Us Best” to explain my belief that anyone can achieve his / her potential by setting milestones / goals for constant improvement. It is a philosophy that I began to think and implement while a tee ager particularly in sports.
I got the same satisfaction if I did better than the previous time though I wished I could be the best. In time I applied this “Credo” to the over 20 underperforming manufacturing businesses in the USA and western Europe I bought for JP Industries, Inc that I founded with the strategy of acquiring such businesses, paid the expected lower price and create a higher value by improving the performance significantly by implementing this philosophy by providing the opportunity to employees to improve their ability through training and special coerces at the near by community colleges and /or equipment suppliers. This required, often, higher relevant technology. In a related article back then, BusinessWeek magazine described my approach as a “blending high tech with worker involvement”.
