Good observations. We have hardly touched the areas that give employees intrinsic rewards, such as enriched jobs.

Great discussion. I don't think you can do a normal - do x get y incentive for this kind of behavior. This behavior is the type of behavior that is best handled via recognition - something that shows employees that company values questions, experiments, discussion, innovation. Trying to "motivate" innovation isn't the way to go. Recognize innovation as a core company value and you communicate to the group that this is the behavior we want to see more of.

I agree. Incentives are not that effective for motivating people, when the job involves high-level, creative, and conceptual abilities.

A very timely point to bring up. In a company where expanding ones horizons is encouraged and rewarded, the results can be impressive. The opposite is also true.
