Everybody is a cook, even the bottle washers.

One sort of job requires people to follow a recipe. Another, better sort of job requires people to understand the recipe. If you understand it, that means you can change it. You have resilience and insight and the leverage to make it better. Teach all your people to be chefs. Know the recipe, but don’t be afraid of changing it up when they see an opportunity.
