Writing in Fortune Magazine, Polly LaBarre explains, “Why you should embrace your company’s heretics.”

LaBarre’s observations begin, “Making your organization a home for heretics just might be the best way of making sure it has a future.”

The article then uses the CIA and IBM as example organizations that benefitted from embracing the heretics within them: “If a rigidly controlled intelligence agency and a hundred-year-old industrial corporation can welcome (and profit from) heretics, what’s stopping you?”
