A Fortune article on 10 mistakes that companies make. This is the BigCo point of view. SmallCos have a very different set of challenges, but nevertheless the article is good reading.
Fortune’s List: Softened by Success, See No Evil, Fearing the Boss more than the Competition, Overdosing on Risk, Acquisition Lust, Listening to Wall Street more than to Employees, Strategy du Jour, A Dangerous Corporate Culture, The New-Economy Death Spiral, A Dysfunctional Board.
