“I’d rather play second base on a championship team than shortstop on a team that doesn’t make it to the World Series.”

–Frank Bisignano, Chief Administrative Officer of J.P. Morgan Chase , from Jamie Dimon’s Swat Team, the cover story in the issue of new Fortune, released today. Bisignano followed Dimon from Citigroup , giving up the reins of a business that earned profits of $1 billion annually to take a staff role (albeit a big one). Bisignano understands that particularly in today’s brutal environment, picking the right team–rather than obsessing over rank and title–is more critical to career success than ever.
