Thanks Katherine Clayton ! ... You are right, a great challenge is to make them participate in this new approach, and even more adopt it into their workflows... It will require work making invitations, including institutions where there is some trust established already (including invitations from friends, and informal social networks); also, it is valuable to have support from upper levels, which might help a lot. Nevertheless, from informal conversations I have had with several entrepreneurs, and some scientists, and engineers, I have identified a pattern in something that is starting to happen: Connections across areas in big organizations (including universities), and even connections across industries... Breaking "silos" in systems is something that we now have the opportunity to encourage in order to find exciting new ideas like yours, and make them reality in a shorter amount of time.
Fellow Max Noble , and fellow Team . Congratulations for a great inspiring job. This is an incredibly ambitious project, and it's great to see how things have evolved during this experience. I'm pretty sure that haven't been selected as a "top idea" won't stop our desire to prepare all learners (including life-long learners) for the needs of tomorrow.
Thanks Max for letting me be part of this team, and thanks team for an amazing job.
I'm looking forward to keep learning from you, and with all of you.
PS: Thanks Kate Rushton (and all the OpenIDEO team of the challenge) for an insightful process, full of opportunities to learn and make ideas better. This has been a great first experience.
