A Quote by Seth Goldman on business, change, and companies

When we look at how change happens in the business world, it usually comes from two different kinds of business: Those, usually smaller, companies that take big risks and, when they succeed, inspire others to follow. Or the larger companies that gain inspiration from the smaller pioneering changemakers and through their scale make even more change happen.

A Quote by Bo Burlingham on great, companies, business, and conscious capitalism

It’s a widely accepted axiom of business that great companies grow their revenues and profits year after year. Yet quietly, under the radar, some entrepreneurs have rejected the pressure of endless growth to focus on more satisfying business goals. Goals like being great at what they do . . . creating a great place to work . . . provid-ing great customer service . . . making great contributions to their communities . . . and finding great ways to lead their lives.

A Quote by Steven Silbiger on companies, structure, and organization

Amorphous: This is my personal favorite. The amorphous structure is no structure at all. It's the free bird. In these companies, highly motivated and productive managers create and dissolve reporting relationships as the task at hand requires. In these companies, the structure incrementally grows as events dictate.
