A real pot-boiler
A CEO once told us that his job was to turn the heat up under the pot of water, and keep turning it up until the water roiled up and splattered over the sides. Back off the heat a bit until the turbulence subsided for a time, then do the whole thing all over again.
This chief executive, not in biotech, itched to create change. And on his watch, the pot rocked until it fairly leaped into the air.
