Some measure success by titles, salaries, or richly appointed offices. Others use a very different type of yardstick. Consider the eight professionals selected as our 2007 Rainmakers, for example.

They talked instead about the satisfaction they’ve gained from working with students, helping develop breakthrough software, or working to promote collaboration among supply chain partners. For them, success means nothing less than making a lasting contribution to the profession.
