Chapter 7. Becoming an Outside-in Developer

7. Becoming an Outside-in Developer

“...We derive our success from careful adherence to a common-sense approach: We treat our customers well, we give our employees respect and opportunities to grow, and we know that if we stick to these two rules, profits and growth will naturally follow.”

—Andy Taylor[1]

[1] Andy Taylor, chairman and CEO of Enterprise Rent-A-Car, quoted in Kirk Kazanjian, Exceeding Customer Expectations (New York: Currency Books/Doubleday, 2007).
