Bill Taylor, co-founder of Fast Company and co-author (with Polly LaBarre) of Mavericks at Work (pub date Sept. 1, 2006) is now writing a regular column for the New York Times. Sunday's article, titled "Here's an Idea: Let Everyone Have Ideas," discusses Rite-Solutions, a software company based in Rhode Island (USA) that has "an internal market where any employee can propose that the company acquire a new technology, enter a new business or make an efficiency improvement." It's a good case study of how a company taps into the collective genius of the whole organization.
