Be a meritocracy through differentiation of people.
“ Categorize your people as the top 20, middle 70 and bottom 10 percent who turn over in 1 year or less. You manage the 70 by identifying people who have the potential to move up and cultivating them. You manage the top 20 by rewarding them like crazy.”
“ Use a rigorous non-bureaucratic evaluation system, monitored for integrity with the same intensity of Sarbanes-Oxley Act compliance.”
