The imperfection. . . or the promise?

An openness to low-fidelity prototypes may seem soft and intangible, but . . . . when a creative individual shows their boss – or even their colleagues – a good idea that’s still a little rough around the edges, people pay close attention to what happens next. Does the organization build on the idea or ridicule it? Does management focus on the imperfections or the promise?
