ABSTRACT
The author focuses on how to achieve a high-impact change in an organization. He believes that within and between levels in an organization, hierarchies should be broken down to distribute decision making and create a sense of accountability. He suggests to build a senior high performing team that would influence others to work the same way. He relates the case of INTRA, Inc. for a multi-tier alignment case study.
