Learning from the Road Runner

"The Road Runner organizations of tomorrow must take repeated leaps of faith to break the restraints of rationality in search of a more creative outcome. The spirited associates [members] who inhabit them must view obstacles as opportunities and barriers as bequests."

From Beep! Beep! Competing in the Age of the Road Runner by Chip R. Bell & Oren Harari (2000).
