  2. 2. “What we’ve got at GM now is a general comprehension that you can’t run this business by the left, intellectual, analytical side of the brain. You have to have a lot of right side, creative input. We are in the arts and entertainment business, and we’re putting a huge emphasis on world-class design.” GM Vice Chairman Bob Lutz “There is more competition now than ever before. We keep a laser focus on our customers. We go beyond “process efficiencies”. Clear goals, great people, empowerment and trust move faster and better than too much process.” Nike CIO – Roland Paanakker Interviewee – The DNA of Great Big Change
