"To achieve a competitive edge we must understand and embrace the priority of productivity, make the
transition to the leadership style of the 90’s and focus on business strategies that leverage our indigenous
strengths ... Vision is the glue that takes the place of much of the hierarchial structures of the past ...
Canada must use flexibility to compete and win in the global arena. Increasing flexibility requires a high
commitment to teamwork and empowerment of the workforce at all levels ... There is a major challenge
ahead to expand Canada’s science-based innovation infrastructure, and in particular to upgrade our pool
of scientists and engineers, both in terms of quality and quantity ...
The reality is that if we want to keep Canada Canadian, we have to keep Canada competitive."
