Get Outside Yourself!
Endless Innovation pointed me to a Fast Company article which makes the case that unlike 20th Century organizations that could survive on their own internal talent, 21st Century organizations must either interconnect with outside talent, or die.
The more a company opens itself up to engage with the outside world, the better its chances. In this new era, scale won't guarantee viability in the face of massively interconnected customers, suppliers, and competitors. But all of those scientists and employees can do amazing things if they connect with what's happening outside your walls.
