Replying to LO22865 --

Just in case you haven't seen this connection, I'd recommend you look at
companies who have pursued the goal of becoming "boundaryless." The
archetype, of course, is General Electric. The connection I see is that
being a "leader" in a truly boundaryless organization requires all of what
I value as "real" leadership skills. Leadership development in
successfully boundaryless companies must be quite different than
traditional leadership development. I suspect that a list of such
companies might also be a list of benchmark-able leadership development

You might want to contact Ron Ashkenas, managing partner in Robert H.
Schaffer & Associates (Stamford, Connecticut) who co-authored the book "The
Boundaryless Organization" and pioneered its principles in collaboration
with Steve Kerr and others at GE.
