Description

Gawker tech-blogger and journalist Ryan Tate reveals how businesses can inspire greater creativity and productivity by allowing their employees to pursue their own passions at work. In The 20% Doctrine, Tate examines how companies large and small can incubate valuable innovative advances by making small, specific changes to how work time is approached within their corporate cultures. The concept of "20% Time" originated at Google, but Tate takes examples from all around the business world-from Yahoo! and Conde Nast to the Thomas Keller Restaurant Group, National Public Radio, Flickr and the Huffington Post-to demonstrate how flexibility and experimentation can revolutionize any business model, including yours.
