  • Fun times. I like your idea of giving the best ideas a chance to come out and become products. The only concern I would have is that sometimes the best projects that are created during unstructured innovation don't have obvious business value.

    Taking the time to slow down and create more powerful build infrastructure can cause an astronomical increase in your teams ability to create value.
