Discover the specific strategies premier companies are using to position themselves for success in the new knowledge economy. In this best-selling work, a world-class team of management experts shows how leading corporations--General Electric, Morgan Bank, and SmithKline Beecham included--are busting boundaries on all fronts. Each of these companies is producing superior results by encouraging the flow of ideas, resources, and talents in and out of the organization, up and down the hierarchy, and across geographic lines. For any executive looking to build a more flexible, innovative, and competitive organization, The Boundaryless Organization remains the definitive guide.

From the Inside Flap:

To succeed in business today, organizations must learn to color outside the lines. In the words of Jack Welch, the much-quoted CEO of General Electric, organizations have to become "boundaryless." In The Boundaryless Organization, this top team of management experts shows how to sweep away the artificial obstacles of hierarchy, turf, and geography that too often stand in the way of outstanding business performance. They demonstrate how top organizations such as Samsung, Morgan Bank, and SmithKline Beecham are busting boundaries on all fronts, each enjoying stellar results by encouraging the flow of ideas, resources, and talents in and out of the organization, up and down the hierarchy, and across geographic boundaries.
