Hold Your Horses!Morrison’s essay opens with a story of a young time &motion expert trying to find a way to speed up artillerycrews during WWI, just after the fall of France. Hewatched one of the five- man gun crews practicing inthe field with their guns mounted on trailers, towedbehind their trucks. Puzzled by certain aspects of theirprocedures, he took some slow-motion pictures of thesoldiers performing the loading, aiming, and firingroutines.When he ran these pictures over once or twice, henoticed something that appeared odd to him. A momentbefore the firing, two members of the gun crew ceasedall activity and came to attention for a three-secondinterval extending throughout the discharge of the gun.Since this seemed like quite a waste of time, and theyoung time & motion expert really couldn’t make anysense of it, he asked an old artillery colonel to look atthe films to see if he could explain this strange behavior.The colonel, too, was puzzled. He asked to see thepictures again. "Ah," he said when the performance wasover, "I have it. They are holding the horses." Elting Morrison, Gunfire at Sea

Swiss Re Americas DivisionWe had the freedom to pick the team. We picked very goodpeople, recognized their talents, moved them around, and let thecream rise to the top. We had to tell our message of bottom-lineperformance to people who had stopped caring. We had toconvince them that we meant it and that you can’t survive here ifyou don’t care.I love coming to work here because I get to work with the best.Andreas tells us where we need to go but not how to get there. Ifyou are committed and you perform, then you have autonomy.We are much more informal now, but much more direct.We have laughter, intellect, frustration. We think that simplicityis sexy. We created a totally different management board withintwo to three months. My conference table has name plaques foreachof the members of the management board. It is arecognition of who is on the team and a reminder that we eachneed to earn the right to be at the next meeting. I don’t expectthem to be sitting there converting O2 to CO2. Patrick Mailloux
