|For example, if you're Richard Hendricks (HBO's Silicon Valley), how do you get your staff to execute on your new exotic compression algorithm? Or, if you're Larry Page, how do you do get the Jeff Deans of the world to build Big Table, etc?|
In other words, if you're running a business that requires pushing the edge of innovation; how do you ensure that the project actually succeeds and creates business value? How do you prevent these projects from devolving into endless black-holes of research?
