  • 5 keys to building a front-line-focused organization
    Senior leaders who are committed to a front-line-focused organization must establish a vision that puts customers first, respect and encourage insight from front-line employees, and "obsess over talent," among other steps, write Noel M. Tichy and Chris DeRose in this book excerpt.

"I've come to learn there is a virtuous cycle to transparency and a very vicious cycle of obfuscation," he says. CNNMoney/Fortune (2/14) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
