These are Daley's tips for creating a collaborative culture.

1. Play musical chairs. When 4moms started, marketers, engineers, supply-chain managers, and industrial designers sat in their respective departments. But soon they began to rearrange themselves into project-focused, cross-functional teams. Rather than send them all back to their offices, Daley says, the company embraced the idea, because it brought conversations about product form and appearance into the process earlier, a "big part of making a product successful. We're tripling our lab space because this is the way people like to work."

Discover the Pulitzer Prize-winning author behind "Gone With the Wind," one of the world’s best-selling novels that features two of the world’s great lovers — Scarlett and Rhett — and was adapted into one of the most popular films of all time. No ordinary writer — or woman — Margaret Mitchell was a charismatic force who challenged the stifling Southern social order and struggled with the changing role of women and the liberation of African Americans.

Publishers used to be in a position to nurture an author's career. That hasn't been the case for some time now, and authors who don't become best-sellers immediately tend not to get second-chances.  How many potentially great authors - writers who need time to grow and develop into their best work - do we lose this way?
