BBC - Capital - The real reason bonuses aren’t paid out fairly
“It is important to all employees that, as a matter of fairness, the rules regarding bonuses be clearly articulated and then followed by management,” said Denis Arnold, the Surtman Distinguished Professor of Business Ethics at the University of North Carolina, Charlotte, in the U.S. If not, your team members have less of an incentive to work hard, bring in new business, and devote themselves to the company. They will be more likely to spend too much time engaged in office politics — and to look for other jobs. &! << management &! &! The problem with really smart people is that they often think they know more than everyone else. [might make bad managers, bc they tell people how to do their work, same way they would do it ...]

The Delicate Art of Unauthorized Innovation - Michael Schrage - Harvard Business Review
Is that bad? Yes. Innovative organizations need to be innovative about how they innovate. The innovation and entrepreneurship literature — popular and academic alike — overflows with stories detailing the importance of informal economies in enterprise development. But since too many C-level executives and not a few investors consider "informal" a euphemism for "inefficient," squeezing out perceived slack has become a managerial priority. The not-unreasonable view from the top is that it's smarter to make our formal processes better and more efficient than depend on informal initiatives we can't quite see or control.
