Boss Swap Reality Show

This should be a very interesting show – and an interesting study in management skill.

A new reality television show will see company bosses hand over the running of their operation to a stranger.

The first episode of Boss Swap will be screened on Channel 4 in January – having been spawned by the Wife Swap series.

As in Wife Swap, the participants in the new show are selected carefully to ensure a "clash of styles" during the two-week exchange.

Neither boss knows his or her destination or industry, and they won't know who will be deputising in their absence. The bosses are encouraged to make up to five changes they believe will improve the firm's performance.

I hope they pick this up in the U.S.
