   schema:description "In 1961, Charles Koch joined his fathers Wichita-based company, then valued at $21 million. Six years later, he was named chairman of the board and CEO of Koch Industries, Inc. Today, Koch Industries estimated worth is $100 billion -- making it one of the largest private companies in the world. Koch exceeds the S&P 500s five-decade growth by 27-fold and plans to double its value on average every six years. What exactly does this company do and why is it so remarkably profitable? Kochs name may not be on your stain-resistant carpet, stretch denim jeans, the connectors in your smart phone, or your babys ultra-absorbent diapers but it makes them all. And Kochs Market-Based Management® system is what drives these innovations and many more. Based on five decades of interdisciplinary studies, experimental discovery, and practical implementation across Koch businesses worldwide, the core objective of MBM is to generate good profit. Good profit results from products and services that customers vote for freely with their dollars, products that improve peoples lives. It results from a culture where employees are empowered to act entrepreneurially to discover customers preferences and the best ways to satisfy them. Good profit is what follows when long-term value is created for customers, employees, shareholders, and society. Here, drawing on revealing, honest, and previously untold stories from his nearly six decades in business, Koch walks the reader through the five dimensions of MBM to show how to apply its framework to generate more good profit in any business, industry, or organization of any size."@en ;
