Google, Inc. is a corporation that is known for innovation and amazing leadership practices. Google’s greatest innovation may actually be its managerial practice. Google is not led by a single CEO, but by a team that gives it immense strategic and management strength. (Nussbaum, n.d.) Engineers at Google are able to work on their ongoing projects 4 days out of the 5 day work week, and one day a week is designated for potential ideas of their own choice. (Sawyer, 2009) Google has innovation reviews, where each executive presents the most promising ideas from within his own division. The CEO is at these innovation reviews to listen to these innovative ideas. Another way to ensure that some of these ideas have the opportunity to be developed is to allow the engineers to work on these ideas for more than one day a week and in some cases full time.

The Freakonomics called “Are we running out of ideas?” invites economics from different universities to discuss a phenomenon that may have not seen as a problem before, but now with the changing world and society we live in, it has certainly become a topic of concern. According to Steve Levitt, who is an economist at the University of Chicago, all it takes for a company to become truly successful is one or two simple ideas. He continues further and explains how he believes that companies have the tendency to believe that they are great at everything, when in fact, they are about average, except in the one or two ideas that made their company successful in the first place. Levitt brings this major point across because he believes that successful companies are built around an idea, yet, many people now devote less and less time on trying to come up with new ideas. Instead, Levitt states that individuals spent far too much time on day-to-day activities that could easily become easier and more efficient through the power of ideas.
