A Man's Reach -- A Transforming Life, 22: Fifty Years with H. B. Fuller

Booklet, "Celebrating 50 Years with H. B. Fuller Company," 1984

"Any business ought to have three things clearly understood by all those it touches. It needs a philosophy, a guiding sense of its role in society, its values and its purpose. It needs a mission, a clear statement of it goals. And it needs a strategy specifying how it intends to accomplish its mission. Many businesses focus on strategy without giving any thought to philosophy or much attention to mission. Those businesses might enjoy some success, but I think it is bound to be short-lived."
