Asked on 15 March
We're interested in exploring "20% Time" for R&D engineers. The basic idea is to ask every engineer (or everyone) in the organization to spend some percentage of their time on personally-chosen projects to encourage exploring new ideas.
I'm interested in hearing from anyone who has tried this.
1) What is the motivation?
2) What are the rules?
3) What have been the results (including intangibles)?
4) Any thoughts on how to make it successful in just one organization (the long-term R&D lab) of a large company?
To understand the concept of 20% Time, please refer to the link: http://www.scottberkun.com/blog/2008/thoughts-on-googles-20-time/
