Bo Burlingham is the author of “Small Giants: Companies That Choose to be Great Instead of Big,” founder of the Inc. Small Giants Community (http://www.smallgiants.org/) and an editor-at-large of Inc. Magazine. Bo joined Inc. in January 1983 as a senior editor and became executive editor six months later, a position he held for the next seven years or so. He subsequently wrote two books, “The Great Game of Business” and “A Stake in the Outcome,” with Jack Stack, the co-founder and CEO of Springfield Remanufacturing Corp and the pioneer of open-book management. Before joining Inc., Bo freelanced for various publications and was managing editor of Ramparts magazine. In 1982 he joined Fidelity Investments, where he wrote for Peter Lynch, Ned Johnson, and others until coming to Inc. He was also a founder, with Tom Peters, of PAC World, a weird international networking group that gave him a chance to meet a lot of zany—and brilliant—people from around the globe.
