The Innovators and The Competent

I agree with Nicholas Carr here when he says, "One of the dangers of placing too much emphasis on innovation, I suggest, is that a company can end up devaluing the work of the 'merely competent.' In fact, having highly competent employees is usually every bit as important to a business's success as having highly creative ones." That's good to hear. With all the attention on super smart innovation, it's nice to see that us mere mortals are necessary too. And working within an open community environment like Sun offers us regulars the opportunity to innovate in small -- but important -- ways. And that's what I'm trying to take advantage of. Improving consistently in small ways. Whether that's innovation or not I don't care. It's improvement and that's what counts. And that's what's encouraged.

Well stated, Jim.
