I admire Clayton Christensen for his integrity and work on disruptive innovation models. I admire David Packard and Bill Hewlett for establishing the original "HP Way" and management philosophy. I admire Melinda Gates for her vision and execution to assist people of all levels on a human scale with her foundation's initiatives in education and world health. And I admire Ursula M. Burns for her executive and technical competence, teamwork, bluntness, and organizational leadership ability.
