Corning 1983-1996: Transition at the Top
Focuses on Jamie Houghton's efforts to revitalize Corning from 1983-1996, including the development of a very strong set of values and culture. The issue centers around Roger Ackerman's rise to president, then chairman/CEO, and his drive to both change the business strategically and financially and develop a new culture to support this change.
