Présentation de l'éditeur

"My friend - and now partner - Jorge Paulo and his team are among the best businessmen in the World. He is a fantastic person and his story should be an inspiration to everybody, as it is for me." - Warren Buffett

In just 40 years this Brazilian trio built the biggest empire in the history of Brazilian capitalism and launched themselves onto the world stage in an unprecedented way.

The management method they developed, which has been zealously followed by their employees, is based on meritocracy, simplicity and constant cost cutting.

Their culture is as efficient as it is merciless and leaves no room for mediocre performance. On the other hand, those who bring in exceptional results have the chance to become company partners and make a fortune.

Dream Big presents a detailed behind-the-scenes portrait of the meteoric rise of these three businessmen, from the founding of Banco Garantia in the 1970s to the present day.

Drags a little at the start but picks up. Basic formula for success, work smart and hard, keep your costs down, set goals and incentivize. Glad I read it.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 A serious analysis awaits the next author. 17 mai 2014
Par N.Rodniks - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Not a great book. Basically an extended magazine article: a chronological narrative featuring a compilation of interviews, no obvious cross-checking and little critical analysis. Are they brilliant or simply smart aggressive guys who were leveraged in the right place (finance) at the right time (when Brazil opened its markets)? Is zero-based-budgeting a management template for all or is it a short-term over-earning that hobbles future prospects by starving innovation while making current management rich?

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Why re-invent the wheels if you can learn from the best! 15 août 2014
Par Alan - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
If you did not already know it, the three gentlemen featured in this book, through their prior and current investment vehicles (3G Capital), control three of the most iconic American brands – Budweiser, Burger King, and now Heinz. How they managed to get this far from their home at Brazil is a completely fascinating story.

Some years ago, I had the chance to interview for a job at the Chinese operations of InBev (predecessor of AB InBev), and I was struck by the youthfulness of intelligence of their people there (a young gentleman in his early 30s from South America was already running the entire finance and M&A operation of China). Over the years, I have followed some of their transactions and found them fascinating. One can also find these information in some recent Businessweek article like ‘The Plot to Murder America’s Beer’ featuring Carlos Brito (protégé of the three gentlemen), a 2013 article featuring 3G Capital and Lemann), and a most recent one called ‘Burger King is run by Children’.

Lemann started one of the most successful investment banks in Brazil called Garantia, modeled after the mighty Goldman Sachs and later sold to Credit Suisse. They later acquired one of the largest retailers in South America, and learned how to operate it from none other than the king of retail, Sam Walton, himself. Along the way, they also created the first private equity fund in Brazil called GP investment.

The core philosophies of Lemann et al are simple yet powerful:

1. Learn from the best (i.e. Goldman Sachs as role model for Garantia)
2. Use smart and hungry young professionals and give them plenty of opportunities to learn, grow and get rich
3. Take a long-term view with investments (grow the business, not flip them)
4. Take over bloated and inefficient companies and impose discipline (operating goals and expense control) and generate strong cash flow (to either pay down debt or pay dividend); this concept had been applied in the buyout of Budweiser, Burger King, and will likely be applied to Heinz as well. It was also mentioned in Chris Zook’s book Repeatability.
5. Focus & simplicity. The trio is known for only doing few deals at a time and instead focusing on getting results and generating cash flow for each portfolio company.

I would give the book a four star because it captures the history and philosophy of the trio well. On the other hand, I was hoping to see more materials outside the published literature, especially in how they implement the operational improvements and in the case of AB InBev, how they integrated the two companies after the merger.

Overall a very inspiring book.

Finally, we have this book in English! Its a great story about one of the best investors/entrepreneurs of our time! I downloaded the book at 11PM an could not put it down. I am almost 50% done with it. Its super entertaining and specially revealing of the trio's philosophy and practices. I think this book is great for entrepreneurs in economies with no stock market. How you can increase value through acquisitions and great management techniques.
April 25: Done reading the book in just two days. It was fantastic. Very revealing. Forget about startups, or all that crap. Hard work, efficiency, benchmarking a cost control is where it is all about. Also for people that are looking for more detail about variable pay, you can contact Insper Institute ( and ask for the english version of AE-P0010 | AE-E0010 Banco de Investimentos Garantia .

first three quarters of book were page turning but after that I felt that author skipped details involving ladt 3g deals. And I surely miss info about why they choose those companies. its more of a biographyy and chronology then business book

Perhaps this is more a review of the subject than the book itself. Several times I wanted more detail than the author provided, but she clearly would have liked that too.

We have all heard the about the changes 3G imposed on AB, Burger King and Heinz. Although no one likes to hear about or inflict job cuts, by all accounts with this team merit reigns and results follow. No company or system is perfect but too many enterprises claim to be meritocracies where in fact politics and guile are valued above results. Three cheers for 3G and may many others duplicate their model.
