Read the passage and answer the questions 71 − 75:

If you look at winning and losing among companies, you are most likely to find the greatest differences from company to company and not from market to market, or even country to country. In some of the most difficult country or industry environments, you find some outstanding companies. It therefore becomes key to explaining winners and losers from company to company. Companies that win or lose are product of their environment. They come out of a particular labour market and the particular talents available in those countries and more specifically those countries.

You could think of every context across the globe, different cultures, technologies and institutions as creating different “logics” Entrepreneurs and even innovators in established firms are trying to out compete one another in those different logics.

When you look at big organizations such as GE, SIEMENS or TATA group, they tried to win through scale and scope: For example, big efficiencies, or deploying talent in parts of the world where talent did not exist. The assumption was that the less developed parts of the world would try to catch up with the more developed economies. That does not at all hold true.

There is a very important question that has to be asked: Can we identify leadership? I do not mean to identify those whom we see have already been successful. Leaders are not those who think they know the answer; they are those who know how to build systems and those who discover the answer. Unfortunately, when we get our first job or promotion, we get those promotions because of what we know, or our functional ability, but that knowledge is limited for growing an organzation and leading it on the path of success. HR managers need to find those who, among their work-force are scalable. A scalable manager can understand that their job is to create an environment within which those who report to them can prosper, take risks, innovate, feel confident and improve.

  1. Greatest difference in winners and losers lies:
