Allow me to address the flip side of your question by saying I can think of a few product developments from the old days at Motorola in which management tried to kill a project but certain engineers refused to let it die and it became a "skunk works" for awhile, only to later get resurrected, become a successful product and make some other manager a hero -- usually not the same manager who previously tried to kill it.
