Warren Buffett doesn't think company management matters. Citing the practices of small, private firms in our network, we argue that helping to better develop them matters because it improves the bottom line.

Hi Mark,

No matter whether we call it management, leadership or something else, it's hard to think of any great company without a great leader at the helm or any tribe without someone passionate to lead them. I agree with Duncan that investors look at companies very differently than do owners or entrepreneurs (or employees for that matter) and not always with the business's long-term well-being at heart.

Hi Mark,

From what I understand about investing, it has nothing to do with "normal" business considerations. A company w/a CEO who treats employees badly may be a better investment than the reverse, just as a business that makes the finest product in its class may not be as good an investment as one that produces average product quality but does much better business.
