Audio: Global Business: Shake Up Your Company (from: 12 Feb 2015)

I have to admit I was really impressed what Gary Hamil said in the following audio interview.  Here is an excerpt from the site, "Shake Up Your Company: That's the message from one of the USA's (and the world's) best known management gurus, Gary Hamel.
