IBM to Hit 100
While many local companies over 100 years old that I have interviewed are small, often family-owned businesses, a number of large, very well-known companies have been hitting the century mark in the last few years. IBM is celebrating their centennial year in 2011 and I have been invited to speak about my research on 100-year-old companies at the IBM Impact Conference/Forbes Business Leadership Forum in April. It is so interesting to see how a specific company exhibits the common traits that have emerged from the research!
