More than Management
“Leaders do the right things,
while managers do things right.”
Warren G. Bennis

I was guided by Peter Drucker
• Investigate thoroughly (Due diligence)
• Don‘t pay too much (resist your will to succeed, don‘t pay silly
prices, let your competitor do the nonsense)
• Integrate quickly (not hesitating in structuring …)
