Back in July, New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson announced that Arthur Gregg Sulzberger, a metro reporter and the son of Times chairman and publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr., would "take a leave from metro to be the editor in charge of a new ideas task force, which will function as the newsroom’s version of a skunk-works team, a creative team that will think up and propose new ways to expand our news offerings digitally."

The fruits of that exercise were revealed Thursday with the internal release of an "innovation report" by Sulzberger and his crew. It calls for the creation of new teams focused on audience development, analytics and strategy, as well as newsroom collaboration with "reader-focused departments on the business side" and prioritizing "digital hiring to help the digital-first transition."
