MBM® SPOTLIGHT

Our business philosophy is called Market-Based Management®, and it was developed by Charles Koch himself. In each issue, you will be introduced to one of our eight Guiding Principles essential to helping us innovate, improve and transform ourselves in order to create greater value.

Principle 5 – Knowledge

Acquire the best knowledge from any and all sources that will enable you to improve your performance. Share your knowledge proactively. Provide and solicit challenge consistently and respectfully.

MBM® SPOTLIGHT

Market-Based Management® is the business and cultural approach that powers the policies, practices and conduct of Koch companies. In each issue, we will highlight a different Guiding Principle and how it relates to you and your internship.

Principle 7 – Change

Anticipate and embrace change. Envision what could be, challenge the status quo and drive creative destruction through experimental discovery.

“Experimental discovery is needed because we cannot know the final destination when our journey begins. Innovation usually involves numerous changes in direction that lead to the discovery of new paths.” – Charles Koch, “Good Profit”

It’s no secret that our CEO is a literary junkie. Check out the books that have shaped his philosophy and challenged his world view.
