Business Rules

Fortune Magazine has published the new rules of doing business. Compared to the old rules these are:

New Rules vs. Old Rules
1 Agile is best; being big can bite you.
Big dogs own the street.
2 Find a niche, create something new. Be No. 1 or No. 2 in your market.
3 The customer is king. Shareholders rule.
4 Look out, not in. Be lean and mean.
5 Hire passionate people. Rank your players; go with the A's.
6 Hire a courageous CEO. Hire a charismatic CEO.
7 Admire my soul.

The one that obviously gets me is hire passionate people. Most of the companies I worked for ranked people. By ranking this meant givng people who sucked up to the boss and played company politics higher rankings than those who actually did their job well and got on with the rank and file.
