Over the last several years, it has become more apparent that it is possible to speed up or slow down the pace of innovation. We can speed things up, not so much by getting smarter, but by better connecting smart folks who have different types of expertise. Matching talent and need, so to speak.
We know that this is the path forward. We don’t know, however, how to maximize this type of connectivity. That requires facilitation and more precisely informed facilitation.
Fy informed facilitation, I mean facilitation that can build focus points that bring to bear the full range of intellectual power that is available beyond a single institution and applying that focus to generate better solutions faster.
