This weekend I urge all chief executives of major companies to watch the KGB interview with Rio Tinto chief Sam Walsh, which will be published later today. He is developing a new set of strategies that can be applied to a wide range of businesses. But one man should take particular notice: BHP chief executive Andrew Mackenzie.
Sam Walsh believes he has initiated a strategy that will see Rio move ahead of BHP and most global miners. And Walsh, with a twinkle in his eye, reveals how he is managing Rio Tinto like it is a family business.
