ABSTRACT
The article informs that companies make every effort to reach for the goal of inculcating an excuse-free corporate culture. A company doesn't have to be totally excuse-free in order to take giant strides forward in getting results. But it does have to be consciously and constantly striving toward the goal of becoming excuse-free. It is critical to understand that excuse-making is the default position for people if clear corrective measures are not taken by leaders and management. There are three prerequisites that are necessary for any company to make significant, gainful, and lasting change: the leaders must be ready to change, they must have an intense desire to win and they must be willing to make the commitment to do whatever it takes to become number one in their field. The mistake that many companies make is to assume that their culture is determined by their vision or mission statements. This is simply not the case. The only culture that can respond to and win in the marketplace is the culture that is proactive, creative, optimistic, responsible, accountable, stretching, trusting, helpful, focused, risk-taking, blame-accepting, internalizing, and so on.
