RSA animates video, discussing motivation
Around 6:00 into it runs into some very valuable example of how a software company increased motivation and spurred innovation.
Autonomy day = 24 hours of free reign for the developers to work on whatever their little hearts desired, so long as they shared what they worked on during that period in a special meeting at the end of the 24 hours.
Result??? New ideas, fixes to old ideas, high performance.
Great video. Now i need to figure out how to put it into action.
