"This is business as usual at Cisco, given our collaborative structure of councils, boards and working groups to be able to effectively execute on multiple fronts. Time will tell if we are right but the tangible results indicate that the business models based on collaboration may be the most effective way to drive a successful global business today." 1

- John T. Chambers, Chairman and CEO, Cisco Systems Inc., on the company's business performance, in November 2009.

"It [2009] was a pretty enlightening year... When you do four acquisitions in a quarter -- two of them multibillion dollar -- you really do have to have your teams moving in a couple of directions. And you have to coordinate them. That's a perfect example of how they've been utilizing cross-functional teams." 2

Catharine Trebnick, Avian Securities, LLC3, on Cisco's performance and organizational structure, in December 2009.

"What happens when decisions get made by committees? They don't get made [...] There are probably government agencies that have more streamlined bureaucracies." 4
