Crestron Electronics: Innovating with the Help of BPM

By BP Logix on Feb 3, 2014 3:25:15 PM

Technology pundits have been furiously typing away over the past couple weeks trying to explain the significance of Google's $3.2 billion acquisition of Nest, a thermostat company. "It will change how we manage our lives," say the early adopters. "It will give Google knowledge of our every movement," say the detractors.

We see that when CEOs demonstrate respect for employees and their contributions — and figure out how to map these to business goals—the business prospers and employees feel valued.
