I remember one quote by A.C. at Accenture when I was fighting for staff to be assigned on my job. We were talking about "A" players and "B" players. A.C. asked me - "Do you know why Accenture is successful? It is the "B" players that makes us successful." A.C was full of great quotes and he is a great observer of people.
"I rate a player like good basketball players - watch what they do when they DON'T have the ball" - was another one of A.C.'s classic lines.
"There are three types of staff - those that make things happen, those that don't make things happen, and those that walk around and say - What happened? "
It was a priviledge to be mentored by A.C. at Accenture. His wisdom and flexibility was evident in his management philosophy and style.
Afterall - he put up with me - the "B" player.
