Ten Commandments of Business Management

Ten Commandments of Business Management

"Outstanding leaders go out of their way to boost the self-esteem of their personnel. If people believe in themselves, it's amazing what they can accomplish."
Sam Walton

In 1962 Sam Walton opened the first Walmart in Rogers, Arkansas. By 1970 it became a chain of stores across the country.

From Walton's Biography, Made In America: My Story, he outlines what he believes to be the ten commandments of business management.

1. Commit to your goals
2. Share your rewards
3. Communicate all you know
5. Value your associates
6. Celebrate your success
7. Listen to everyone
8. Deliver more than you promise
9. Work smarter than others
10. Blaze your own path

Walton firmly believe that "individuals don't win, teams do." When Walton died in 1992 he was the richest man in the world.
