Why Major Companies Like Whole Foods And Chipotle Have 2 CEOs - HR in ASIA [cached]

Sometimes referred to as "two-in-the-box," the unusual structure can provide "increased scope and broader capacity," Joseph L. Bower, a management professor at Harvard Business School, told Business Insider.
Bower, who wrote about two-in-the-box organizations in his book, "The CEO Within," thinks that co-CEOs can better lead certain companies. "If one CEO is on a global tour of facilities, the other can deal with the government at home," Bower offered as an example. Having dual CEOs is more common in countries like Germany, said Bower, where "collective management is a tradition of sorts. Bower also recognises that most companies that try the system will feel the strain of divided command. "It takes great discipline to consult when appropriate, be decisive when needed, and not blow up the arrangement when one's partner has violated an aspect of the arrangement," he said. Despite the risks, Bower thinks that the U.S. may be gradually moving toward a leadership culture more akin to Germany's, in which co-CEOs would not be such a rarity. "[A]s we strengthen the non-executive chairman's role, as well as the lead director, we may - in effect - be moving in that direction," he said.
