    bringing equal fervor to smaller matters.

    Please have a look at the sentence here - "Before Michael C. Woodford tried to force other Olympus Corp. executives to come clean about a series of deals now at the heart of an accounting scandal, the former chief executive had a reputation inside the Japanese manufacturer for bringing equal fervor to smaller matters."

    Please explain to me the meaning of for bringing equal fervor to smaller matters.

    Many thanks
