re: White House Innovation Fellows Tackle Federal IT Projects
It's good for governments to take initiatives and form Committees to tackle national problems. However, if you look into the most successful companies, you find that a common factor is that almost none of them were started by committees. Usually the original key players are only 2 or 3 driven by passion and not the business. Examples include Apple, Google, Facebook, HP, Intel...the list goes on and on.

The most important thing is therefore is to have a mechanism to tap into the brilliance and ideas of these type of people. Often, a slight push of the helping hand is all that is needed. The rsiks are reduced and success amplified.

Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
