    22. 28. 11.5 Weird Ideas That Work http://bobsutton.typepad.com/my_weblog/2006/08/twelve_weird_id.html 1. Hire slow learners (of the organizational code). 1 ½. Hire people who make you feel uncomfortable, even those you dislike. 2. Hire people you (probably) don’t need. 3. Use job interviews to get new ideas, not to screen candidates. 4. Encourage people to ignore and defy superiors and peers. 5. Find some happy people, and get them to fight. 6. Reward success and failure, punish inaction. 7. Decide to do something that will probably fail, then convince yourself and everyone else that success is certain. 8. Think of some ridiculous or impractical things to do, and then plan to do them. 9. Avoid, distract, and bore customers, critics, and anyone who just wants to talk about money. 10. Don’t try to learn anything from people who seem to have solve the problem you face. 11. Forget the past, especially your company’s successes.
