Who are the business people inside an organization?  Sales and marketing, of course. And then there’s product development and production, finance, and distribution. These are all business people. Who else? How about human resources? Are they somehow exempt from the requirement to be business-focused, and to model the skills and expertise required of business leadership?  

Damone Richardson joins us to explain that no, they are not exempt.
