While telling the SRC story, the authors delve into the core issues of ownership, such as the trouble with equity and why it can be a problem when your stock rises; why you don't really find out what problems are until you're successful; why businesses get bought and sold; and the stages of growth beyond mere survival. The authors emphasize how the culture of ownership brings meaning to the lives of all employees, but that the model is fluid; and when companies grow beyond a certain size, outside interest may become inevitable. The SRC model may be the ultimate goal, but because no two companies are alike, some may use the SRC model as a reference rather than as a blueprint.
