Stock ownership comes with a commitment where they need to think like the owner. </li></ul><ul><li>In Dell, they give their people the knowledge, the abilities and the permission to do what they do best and bring it to the height of “ownerships” and lastly bring more success to the company. </li></ul>

  14. 14. <ul><li>360 degree performance appraisal implemented – both staff and suppliers. This full circle review solicits input from everyone an employee work with and the results is openly shared. </li></ul><ul><li>Through this open review, it’s no longer about people staying out of each other’s way or working hard to be competitive but it will be about people who are thoroughly invested in each other’s growth. </li></ul><ul><li>Michael defined - job segmentation as a form of empowerment. </li></ul><ul><li>Job segmentation helps Dell to identify their weaknesses.
