Leader of Wikipedia Has His "Acts" Together
In an article entitled "The Knowledge Maestro", (Fortune, September 17) Jimmy "Jimbo" Wales, the founder of Wikipedia, is asked about how he best works with others. One of his most striking comments to me was,
If you have the right people, and you're organizing things sensibly, there shouldn't be a lot of telling people what to do.
That's a great affirmation of the need to have the right "performers" in your circus and for creating a lineup that keeps everyone focused on the right tasks-including you.
