1. Define the problem and solution space…Create boundaries in the idea-generation process.

2. Break the problem down. Use a visual technique, like diagramming.

3. Make the problem personal. How do you make a business problem personal? By getting down in the trenches and observing the individuals who are affected by the problem (and who would also be affected by your proposed solutions).

4. Seek the perspectives of outsiders. In other words, don’t solve the problem in a vacuum.

"New diseases are inevitable, but in the 21st century we have the tools to greatly reduce the threat posed by global epidemics. We can put in place a safe, secure, globally linked, inter-operable system to prevent disease threats, detect outbreaks in real time, and share information and expertise to respond effectively."

"Talking about the problems of the world without talking about some accessible solutions is the way to paralysis rather than progress"

Understand Groundhog Day

  • Since publishing this in 2012, we trained the groundhog to predict the outcome of important sporting events (its accuracy is just as low and our lab is broke).
