In my column last week, asked, “Do you think the ability to get things done is the most valuable attribute in business?"
100 percent of respondents answered, "Yes."
We then asked, "What do you think would be another valuable attribute?"
Here are the responses:
> Manage multiple and maybe even conflicting priorities simultaneously. Lutz' (former GM exec) book on Execution should be required reading for all new engineers, managers, and supervisors.
> The ability to understand what is the right thing to do.
There is no quiz this week.
Want to get a jump on the surveys? Follow me on twitter, where they are posted early. You can do this here. (note: all respondents are confidential; the software is programmed in such a way that neither we nor anyone else can determine who responded)
