Sample text

The 'proper' career path at MGE was to stay in one function, usually within one unit, and move up - people did not move across business unit and functional boundaries. But Marsh had. He had broken all the normal rules, and now Roth had to find him a job. Roth did not mind much as he liked Marsh, a competent, although not outstanding, performer. The problem was that Marsh was not a THE CHEMICAL RESIDUES STORY 21 specialist in anything in particular. Virtually all the jobs at MGE were designed for specialists, people who had spent their entire career in one function and in one business unit.

All the members of the Executive Committee had spent their entire careers at MGE. While they had heard about more innovative companies, such as 3M, they knew little about how they worked. This did not stop them from saying that they wanted to make MGE look more like 3M, but they did not know how 3M worked. In fact, 3M's structures, systems and culture were very different from those of MGE, but no one at MGE had any clear idea about what the real differences were. In addition, the Executive Committee members did not really run the company.

A corollary to this is that I want to give individuals who work in business enough information to be able to tell the difference between management practices that support innovation and those that suppress it. People deserve to spend their work time within companies that use and encourage their creativity. This book will give individuals enough information to identify an innovation-supportive company when they see one. It will also tell them what kind of changes to lobby for if they find themselves in a company that does not support innovation.
