Interesting perspective Ryan.

I agree, real innovation is often aided by having the confidence to be wrong and to make mistakes. Basically, if you don't try, how will you know if it will or will not work.

While you may find Bob's unbridled blathering endearing, I find it unsettling. What's that they say about a thousand monkeys and a thousand typewriters?

I guess when you've spent years in the "let's take a break for weather and traffic" world of thinking, perhaps it's only natural to want to turn every thought into an articulated opinion. Personally, I don't view this as a sign of innovative thinking, rather a sign of undisciplined thinking.

Real innovation is hard work. Being a contrarian is easy. I would find it much more palatable if Bob's stabs at innovation were based on some well-articulated vision of moving Hamilton forward. The "Detail schemtail", or the "It's in my head so I thought I'd say it out loud" style of innovation practiced by Bratina is not what I expect from my senior leaders.
