Rob May, the BusinessPundit, brings to light this interview with Dr. Teresa Amabile from Harvard Business School.
In his usual fashion, Rob's take on it all comes down to our favorite subject: EXECUTION.
"For all the talk of strategy, big picture thinking, innovation, disruptive technology - the little things still matter. All that fun cool stuff that you find in the business mantra of the month is useless if you don't pay attention to the ordinary, the details, the implementation, the execution. Don't be one of those managers browsing the book store for the next big idea. There are no panaceas. Get the little things right. Build good solid habits. Then you can move up and focus on the bigger things."
