Innovation in the Ranks

In my dream world, I would have every employee receive a hundred bucks. Not in pay, but as discretionary budget for improvements in the plant. Just about everyone has a hundred bucks worth of improvements that they could make, and if someone has a really good idea, he could recruit other people to contribute to it.

It would take some level of management, so they're not working at cross-purposes or creating trap doors or something, but having $100 budgeted for employee innovation would create a fabulous amount of improvement.

You know I'll love this idea.

Our company will give us $25 in gas cards, but they won't give us $25 worth of control. Same goes for the army not letting soldiers choose their own body armor.

Lovin' the levity of trap doors as your example of likely consequences. Nice touch.
