Never have so many forces of change buffeted so many markets from so many different directions. And with so much change, it's easy to be distracted by the new technologies, new business models or the latest disruptors in your market. That means it's easy to lose sight of the one determinant of success or failure that matters above all others--and that always has: your people. The people you attract, motivate, manage and develop will be by far the single biggest driver of your success. Get this wrong and you'll struggle to rise to any of the countless challenges your organization faces. Get it right--with the best people in the right positions doing the right things--and there's literally nothing you can't achieve.
