From strategy+business

  • From “Corporate Culture in Internet Time” (Q1 2000 issue of strategy+business): “Cultures aren’t designed. They simmer; they fester; they brew continually, evolving their particular temperament as people learn what kind of behavior works or doesn’t work in the particular company. The most critical factor in building a culture is the behavior of corporate leaders, who set examples for everyone else (by what they do, not what they say).” -Art Kleiner
  • They All Laughed at Christopher Columbus” (Q4 2000 issue of strategy+business): “Innovation excites cynicism; obviously, some innovations deserve it. Yet the rewards for invention, allied to persistence (the formula for innovation), may be substantial.” -Harold Evans
