Interesting moments from the interview:
Success in transactions"One of the key lessons learned out of all the research is that 47% of the business leaders point to poor planning, and execution around the people in organizational issues as the biggest barrier to success in transactions."
Organizations that attract, retain, and gauge."The world is going through a change as far as how organizations attract, retain, gauge, and motivate talent."
