THE PRICE OF "SUCCESS"

EVER SINCE ADAM SMITH noted the benefits of dividing up labor, efficiency has been management's highest goal. Reducing waste and increasing productivity drove the Industrial Revolution and inspired "management science," which holds that efficiency is fundamental to competitive advantage. "The belief in the unalloyed virtue of efficiency has never dimmed," writes Roger Martin in this month's Spotlight (page 41). Today, he adds, efficiency is "promoted in the classrooms of every business school on the planet."

What if that orthodoxy is wrongheaded and dangerous? Martin argues that it has led ineluctably to the intense concentration of wealth and power that creates many losers and far too few winners in business and society at large.
We don't have to accept that outcome, he says. His proposed remedy? Business, government, and education should focus on a less immediate source of competitive advantage: resilience. Two of Martin's ideas to that end — limiting firms' scale via antitrust policy, and introducing friction through trade barriers and other measures — directly challenge many precepts powering platform-based businesses such as Facebook and Amazon.
The key ingredient in Martin's vision is balance — between efficiency and resilience; between short-term realities and the goal of long-term sustainability. The ability to understand and achieve it is, of course, the essence of good leadership.
