"Measurement is the first step that leads to control and eventually to improvement. If you can't measure something, you can't understand it. If you can't understand it, you can't control it. If you can't control it, you can't improve it."
- H. James Harrington, former IBM executive whose passion was performance improvement

MBA IQ® Daily Lesson
I went into business school with a strong background in finance / accounting from my investment banking experiences, but would have greatly benefited from increased exposure to operations, sales and marketing before the classroom. Simply knowing the language would have accelerated my ramp-up time and improved my class participation.- Melissa Hayes, Harvard MBA 2007
