Tom is in Seoul for a high-visibility event, the World Strategy Forum 2012 ("The New Rules: Reframing Capitalism"). "I'm just the 'management guy' amidst prime ministers and Nobel laureates," he says. "I really don't know what I think about 'reframing capitalism,'" he adds. "I've spent the last thirty years saying the problem is we don't truly put people first or put action ahead of talk or execution excellence ahead of planning 'excellence.' I don't imagine that amounts to 'reframing,' but I'll go to my grave saying it's what we need to do to improve our organizations' performance if excellence is our aspiration."
