Washington Outlook: Capital Wrapup
Motorola Inc. executives weren't prominent among the high-tech backers of Bill Clinton last fall. Still, Clintonites have been trekking to Schaumburg, Ill., to learn the secrets of the company's global success. Energy Secretary Hazel R. O'Leary took 60 staffers to Motorola headquarters for an intensive three-day course in customer satisfaction. And Commerce Secretary Ronald H. Brown spent July 14 at a Motorola factory being briefed on employee empowerment and high-performance work teams. Meanwhile, Motorola Chairman George M.C. Fisher has met with Clinton several times.
