We were successful because we were committed to becoming partners with a lot of people. Our partnerships included the relationships we built with customers as well as those with fellow workers, suppliers and our stock holders. Whatever the form of communicaton is, and we relied heavily on interpersonal contact, as long as a business creates a social contract for its activities then it can be vital and profitable. "We Were All Partners" describes a company that focused on creating social contracts and how we did it through team building, measuring and training. The result of our dedication to the principles of partnership building were excellent profitability and industry leading performance.
