The ‘skunkworks’ is an example of ‘official unofficial’ work, where people are allowed to work on projects either in their own time or outside of their main "activity. Skunkworks projects often are undertaken in secret with the understanding that if the development is successful then the product will be designed later according to the usual process. A famous example of a skunkworks project is the first Apple Macintosh computer. The impoverished conditions of the typical skunkworks seems to be an important ingredient for creativity.
