Since its inception in 1943, IKEA has become much more than a household name in more than 30 countries -- it symbolizes an original concept, a dedication to quality, a distinct design style, and, most importantly, convenience for the harried consumer. In Leading By Design, Kamprad reveals how IKEA achieved its phenomenal success as a recognized brand that grew to dominate an industry. With candor and detail, he offers insights into his cutting-edge management strategies, his enthusiasm to embrace unusual methods (such as producing ready-to-assemble merchandise and using a car-door factory to produce furniture cheaply and effectively), and the tools he used to focus his brand to create affordable furniture with universal appeal. More than a standard business history, Leading By Design is about the inspiring ideas and innovations that make a business work.
