Now you must continue to work hard to support them bot

The global business leader
Leadership has nothing to do with titles. J. Frank Brown, the Dean of INSEAD, has met a lot of CEOs in his two-and-a-half decades in business and many of them are nothing more than LINOs - Leaders In Name Only. "A lot of people talk about leadership and not that many actually do it," Brown said in an interview with INSEAD Knowledge. Brown believes there are seven hallmarks of a great leader.

BCG-K@W Procurement Report: Part 8: Peformance-based Logistics
These days, when the U.S. Department of Defense buys a fighter jet from Lockheed Martin, it doesn't simply pay Lockheed for the physical product. Instead, the government has a "performance-based contract" with the defense supplier, according to Serguei Netessine, professor of operations and information management at Wharton. This contract says, in effect, that the government's reimbursement to Lockheed hinges on the jets' performance -- that is, how often the planes are able to fly. In this inte
