Making the transition from good to great doesn’t require a high-profile CEO, the latest technology, innovative change management, or even a fine-tuned business strategy. At the heart of those rare and truly great companies is a corporate culture that rigorously finds and promote disciplined people to think and act in a disciplined manner.
