German term or phrase: Offenheit predigt
Apples Verschwiegenheit ist Firmenpolitik und Marketingstrategie zugleich. Mitarbeiter werden eingeschworen, mit niemandem über ihre Arbeit zu sprechen. Magnetkarten gewähren Angestellten nur Zugang zu eng begrenzen Bereichen. Die Abteilungen Software und Hardware sind in zwei getrennten Gebäuden untergebracht.

Was bei Apple zum Image gehört, überrascht bei Google. Der Konzern, der Transparenz und ***Offenheit predigt***, gibt sich in den eigenen Angelegenheiten recht zugeknöpft. Die Manager bei Google geben keine Auskunft darüber, wie viel Klicks die Suchmaschine pro Tag verzeichnet.
