Bo Burlingham joined Inc. in January 1983 as a senior editor and became executive editor 6 months later, a position he held for the next 7 years or so. In 1990, he resigned and became editor-at-large (his current title at the magazine) for a number of reasons, including his desire to go back to writing.
Before joining Inc., he freelanced for various publications, including Esquire, Harper’s, Boston Magazine, and Mother Jones. He is the co-author (along with Jack Stack) of The Great Game of Business and A Stake in the Outcome. The Great Game of Business (Doubleday/Currency, 1992), has sold more than 30,000 copies. He lives in Cambridge, Mass.
