  • What matters most (business results, not effort)
  • Organizational change (restructuring from the technologically abstract to the business concrete)
  • Execution and management (replacing industrial with professional)
  • Planning (debunking the myth of control)
  • Paying the bills (capital-intensive financing and budgeting in an agile world)
