Swiss academics Jean-Pierre Jeannet, Thierry Volery, Heiko Bergmann and Cornelia Amstutz offer an in-depth study of three dozen Swiss companies that have withstood competition and intergenerational succession planning. The authors find common themes and compelling tales among these hardy businesses. Business leaders who don’t necessarily want to take over the world, but who do want to build something that lasts, will welcome this study of Alpine inspiration.
