IN THIS SUMMARY

Goofing off at work is usually frowned upon; however, according to Ryan Tate in The 20% Doctrine, organizations should allow employees to follow their passions in order to drive innovation. Tate bases his argument on six case studies, including the development of Google’s AdSense and Gmail products, and similar successes at Flickr, Yahoo, the Huffington Post, a New York City high school, and the French Laundry restaurant. Tate identifies commonalities across all six case studies that feature a problem or product about which one individual was extremely passionate. All are faced with resource constraints that demand quick and dirty solutions, making such constraints a blessing in disguise.
