A race not a journey

“As I tell everybody in our organization, we’re in a six-minute-mile marathon that never ends. That’s a race. When I hear people say they’re ‘on a journey,’ I ask them to find another company. Journeys are slow, and you’ve got a lot of time to pack your bags – we’re in a race! And it’s so important that our IR team work with that and think that way.”

– Jerre Stead, Chairman & CEO, IHS Inc.
at NIRI 2008 Annual Conference, June 9, 2008
