Today's Smart CEOs Are Following a Different Set of Rules

Betsy Morris in Fortune on today's fast-changing landscape, that old formula is getting tired:
Agile is best; being big can bite you.
OLD: Big dogs own the street.

Find a niche, create something new.
OLD: Be No. 1 or No. 2 in your market.

The customer is king.
OLD: Shareholders rule.

Look out, not in.
OLD: Be lean and mean.

Hire passionate people.
OLD: Rank your players; go with the A's.

Hire a courageous CEO.
OLD: Hire a charismatic CEO.

Admire my soul.
OLD: Admire my might.
