Another one of the Big Think Series, words of wisdom. I completely agree with the gist of what Jonah is saying.
Creativity, ideas and even the ability to solve complex problems can come from anywhere. This is powerful stuff and organizations are waking up to this reality.
Sometimes it’s better to look at a problem from the outside, looking in
Crowd-sourcing (although I did not hear Jonah say the term) is a growing phenomenon. Major organizations are increasingly leveraging crowd-sourcing for idea generation and even for getting a solution to some of the most complex problems impacting them. Traditionally, this process used to be handled completely by a dedicated group of SME’s. But as problems get more complex, the traditional models could get choked. +1 for collaboration and crowd-sourcing.
