...US, and I think even what we’ve seen with Haier in Europe as well, when you give people the prospects of really using what they know, and having more autonomy to do that, they become fascinated by it, it becomes energising, and then you begin to see very imaginative responses.

..., you know, things like this and Oticon in Denmark. **When I think back about those things, you know, they changed the organisation, they gave people autonomy, but they didn’t necessarily change the way in which rewards were distributed.

...you will, that thrives on that. So somehow, you’ve got to make it important, as a commercial objective, or as a mission objective, that you have this autonomy and then you need to, I think, do a couple of other things.
