Fable: The Company Which Did Wonderful Things
A new recruit to a young chip company once asked the company’s founder if the company had an organisation chart.
The founder, a great man, drew a circle with a dot in the middle.
The dot, he explained, was the recruit.
The circumference represented everyone else in the company.
The founder told the recruit that when he needed help in his job he could go to anyone else in the company and ask for it.
The company went on to do wonderful things.
