Boundary Layer Inc.
What is a Boundary Layer?
A boundary layer is that small layer of air between the wing of a moving airplane and the undisturbed part of the atmosphere. Lots of interesting things happen in boundary layers: some of the air get accelerated to the speed of the airplane, some of it becomes turbulent, and some of the air even goes the opposite direction. Lots of time and money is spent controlling boundary layers in aviation, fluid dynamics, and petrochemical businesses. Why? Because boundary layers can create significant drag and slow things down.
Businesses – regardless of the field – have boundary layers. Think of your business as an airplane in motion. Some of your employees move just as fast, or faster, than the airplane. These employees and executives are the engines. Research by Gallup shows that only 32% of employees in the US are actively engaged at work. Think about that.
More than two out of three employees are going slower than your aircraft – creating drag, slowing you down, making the engines work harder. Gallup estimates that nearly one out of five are actively disengaged – they’re trying to pull your airplane in the wrong direction, maybe even crash it.
Control your boundary layer. Decrease the drag. Get more people engaged. Scrape the barnacles off your wings. Move faster. Fly higher.
