Isaac Getz – a professor at the highly touted ESCP Europe international business school – discusses his new book Freedom, Inc. and explains his belief that if people can be free to act in the best interest of their company, the results will be tremendous. Citing real world examples from companies such as Harley-Davidson and Sun Hydraulics, Getz explains how innovation rises as often from the factory floor as it emerges from the corner office.
