Success Thru Google’s 20%

Mike Cannon Brooks, the CEO of Altassian – makers of Enterprise application software, reports about the success of his company’s experiment with Google’s 20%. (Google employees can spend 20% of their official time on their pet projects)

He gave his employees the freedom to work on projects of their liking for one day in a week. And it looks like it tremendously paid off. His people built some kick ass products.

Don’t miss to read Mike’s blog where he discusses the idea, the rules and the results.

How I wish other companies gave such leeway too!
