"An excellent R&D team is more like a jazz ensemble than an orchestra"
"A traditionally managed organization is like an orchestra in which a conductor directs the interpretation and execution of a musical score that specifies each musician's part in great detail. In a jazz ensemble by contrast, the musicians all know the song that is to be performed, but the fine details of the performance are (by design) not completely mapped out"
