The mythic CEO of imagination is a person of action. He's always on the move, speaking to stakeholders, putting out fires, getting things done.

Undoubtedly, communicating, pinch-hitting, and driving execution are all very much in the scope of the chief executive's role.

  2. bottom-up transparency gives the CEO a clear view of day-to-day operations and the insight of his team (e.g., Are we going to release the product on time? Which star performer is a few days away from quitting? What big opportunity are we missing?).
