Distorted reality field

Imaginative innovation requires acceptance of a distorted reality field
Paraphrase of an observation and commentary by Walter Isaacson

"Distorted reality?
How does that fit with "we're all in this together"; committed scope-cost-schedule-quality; risk management; and "other people's money"?

When I think PMO, I think: Orthodox PM; rules; constraints; commitments; and all the rest
I'm not thinking "distorted reality"

But wait! How about "imagineering"? Disney has it; so could you! Just put the distorted realists off in their world, throw in money, delete for clarity (DFC) all bureaucracy; and sit back, but don't look down.

You might get the next big thing; you might get an Edsel.
