„For the CEO to be a superstar – and to be paid like one – he has to stop being a company man. The executives of the postwar era were corporate lifers. They were the creations and the servants of their companies, and a great deal of their value came from their knowledge of the particular corporate cultures that had created them and the specific business they did. The superstar CEO cannot be tied to a single corporation and, ideally, not even to a single industry.“
