IKEA founder Kamprad passes away
Hard to think of a better example of strong organisational culture that is formed and shaped by the founder. Ingvar Kamprad has died today.
He started the company at age 17, growing IKEA into the world's biggest furniture retailer.
The Financial Times hailed him as "the man who gave decent design to millions of people at an affordable price."
The New York Times wrote that he was "a true pioneer in entrepreneurship and a most modest man, who never travelled first class despite his personal wealth."
