Think like a proton (stay positive). Act like an electron (hang out at the edge).

Communities credibly positioned as a business model hub, rather than trying to be a tech hub like everyone else, will win.

Putting Harriet Tubman on the $20 is a great idea. Paying all women the same number of $20s for equal work is an even better one.

Trust Is Overrated. How often do we let trust issues get in the way of collaborating? 
How many things don’t we try due to trust issues?

The "overrated" part, or mischievous part in my lexicon, is that trust is often spoken of as an assessment, a feeling a point of view, rather than a declaration. A declaration of trust as a necessary condition for collaboration not a precondition to decide to collaborate or not.

Story
Tagline
Author, The Business Model Innovation Factory
Introduction

My mission is to enable collaborative innovation. My goal is to contribute to a more prosperous national and global economy by catalyzing business model innovation and system transformation in health care, education, energy, and entrepreneurship.

I am an innovation junkie who lives in the grey areas between functions, disciplines, and sectors. I believe that the important opportunities to create value will be found in the grey areas and realized by continual experimentation that celebrates random collisions among the unusual suspects.
