 "If you want the best things to happen in corporate life you have to
 find ways to be hospitable to the unusual person.  You don't get
 innovation as a democratic process.  You almost get it as an
 anti-democratic process. Certainly you get it as an anthitetical
 process, so you have to have an environment where the body of people
 are really amenable to change and can deal with the conflicts that
 arise out of change an innovation." Max DePree, chairman and CEO of
