The problem with many companies now is there is way too much administration and layers, and George believes we need to remove this in order to place the emphasis on the people who can build a company. One of the examples George provides is with his own experience running Medtronic, where everyone ate lunch together. This small action brought people together, unlike so many big offices where people do not even speak to those on a different floor.
