Stack Ranking Stifles Creativity

In Forbes:   Microsoft example.  I am inclined to agree, an approach that strictly forces grading on a curve tends to make people less creative, take fewer risks, and not talk openly to their management.  Not sure how much this really made MS less creative, but can only have hurt them.  In my own interaction with MS innovation groups I found them very creative, but too cautious in delivery.   In our own enterprise we were allowed to be creative, as long as that creativity did even slightly risk key touchstones of delivery.
