As I got into administration and it became frowned upon if I actually wanted to do something myself rather than direct somebody to do it. I often found if there was something that conventional wisdom said couldn't be done give it to somebody young and bright who didn't know it was supposed to be impossible/unworkable/difficult especially if I had a bright idea about how to tackle it. It was guerilla management as I usually had to bypass my middle management subordinates and drop hints and suggestions two or three levels down. It often worked but I got lots of grumbles to my supervisor and "who me? I just made a suggestion" defence didn't work all the time ;^)
Bright young people who don't know it cant be done are nearly always the innovators.
