Doing anything spectacular requires divergent thinking; especially in adverse, negative feedback loops and highly predictable, routine “Innovation Kill Zone” ecosystems. Without the new solution, or an improved renewing solution, there is no Where to Play, How to Play, How to Win strategy and innovation to deliver!

Strategic Innovation. For example moving from a climate crisis to climate protection will be hard. More people with a new strategic innovation mindset is needed.

Improvise, adapt, and overcome.

Thomas Edison. His ability to transform civilization is worth study. Of course electricity now needs to be decarbonized. Also Jesus Christ.
