Legendary businessman, Jack Welch of General Electric pushed GE to new heights through his idea of a “boundary-less organization.” This means that everyone is free to brainstorm and think of ideas–instead of waiting for someone “higher up” in the bureaucracy to think of them first.

Everyone from the lowest line workers to senior managers got his attention–if they had something to say or a new idea that might make the company better. It wasn’t just talk, and it didn’t take his team long to figure that out.
