Wal-Mart is one of the fortune 500 companies. It is ranked number 1 on the fortune 500 list with revenue of $469.2 billion and a profit of $16,999 million.

The leaders have developed a very systematic strategy, which saves the Wal-Mart company money, which then they pass on to its customers, causing them to save money because of the low prices. This requires a methodical way of thinking from the managers, owners, and operators to make it work correctly and efficiently. The leaders must be positive and intelligent to make the system work to the advantage of its owners, customers and employees. The leadership is a large reason why the company is so successful. Without this intelligent style of leadership, the company would become disorganized and end up losing profit, causing their customers to stray towards other competitors.
