What does a plot between “Entrepreneurship Ethic” vs “Culture Discipline” reveal?

Adopted from Jim Collins’s book Good to Great..

When “Entrepreneurship Ethic(EE)” vs “Culture Discipline(CD)” is plotted on X-Y curve the following are the inferences that make us realize why a Great Organization is so difficult to form..

  1. Start Up – High EE and low CD
  2. Bureaucratic – Low EE and low CD
  3. Hierarchical – Low EE and high CD
  4. Great Organization – high EE and high CD

Thus having the right balance of entrepreneurship ethics and culture of discipline is what makes an organization great and hence is so difficult to design.
