Discipline Drives Company Success Despite Slow Economic Recovery
MAP honors 2011 Presidential Award winners
Throughout the country, uncertainty hangs in the air with mixed signs of economic recovery still dampening today's business climate. But at least 10 companies aren't being disheartened or defeated by what they cannot control. In fact, thanks to their "can-do" attitudes, disciplined management, and an unwavering commitment to creating an engaged, aligned and profitable workforce, these companies are driving big results. Highlighting this leadership and these companies, MAP is officially announcing the latest winners of the 7th Annual MAP Presidential Award.
The prestigious 2011 Presidential Award is an honor bestowed to organizations that have achieved strategic goals through a culture of accountability. The award winners are companies to watch, considering they demonstrate a track record for excellence that's seeded in core business fundamentals plus innovative tactics for sustainable company health, according to John Manning, MAP's new general manager.
"Looking at the mix of this year's presidential award winners, there's a lot of diversity among the industries and businesses represented, but the common denominator is discipline," Manning says. "These leaders are true 'disciples of discipline.' They're stewards of accountability and masters at management, which are two tough, albeit critical drivers in achieving a successful business culture."
