Nowadays there is a shortage of resources. At the same time there is a potential propensity to look for alternatives, and make connections. There is a great potential to break silos right now, both in theory and in practice.
For making this happen I propose a 2 part session that I have found has great potential, based on my own experience (including several informal meetings I have had during these days with diverse communities).
Part 1: Focus on Questions. Using Hal Gregersen's methodology of Question Burst I propose using the first part of the session as way of opening minds, by focusing on the questions because I have found that it is very powerful to start by doing this.
Part 2: Brainstorming is not ideal, specially for including more technical people (usually more introvert and/or with more technical language). Yet, there is something called 'speed storming' that is suggested by some scientists. It's basically an analogy to 'speed dating' where people meet with other people in one-on-one quick meetings. I propose to encourage this with people across industries as an quick-and-easy starting point that can catalyze not just new ideas, but new ideas with the necessary resources, and knowledge for turning these ideas into reality (for making sure there is a diversity of knowledge, resources, skills, there is a need of a cautious pre-meeting work, but it is possible to do with diverse partners included).
