    Why the best way to drive growth might be to focus rather than expand When Sanjay Khosla took charge of developing markets for Kraft Foods in 2007, the business was floundering. Six years later, annual sales had soared from $5 billion to $16 billion with significant improvement in profitability. The secret?

Kellogg School professor Mohanbir Sawhney discovered a similar formula for stellar results - focus and simplicity - in advising Fortune 500 companies.

    Unhappily married to an abusive man with a big life insurance policy, Michelle Weeks thought she'd plotted out the perfect crime. But when her best-laid plans unravel and a nosy insurance agent shows up at her door, Michelle is forced to embark on a desperate cover-up: a frantic dance that includes improbable alliances with a corrupt cop and a medical examiner's assistant, plus a hasty trip to a Caribbean medical school, the theft of a freshly dead corpse, and a bone-chilling run-in with a ghoulish cult.
