Making Meaning in the Organization

If you know our site, you know our mantra is "ideas are everywhere". With this in mind, making meaning constantly evolves.

I know, there is always something standing in the way. A lot of times it is ourselves - fear. Lighten up - try not to take things so seriously.

Lead Users and Tossing Pots...

I’ve learned from the open-source movement that people want to contribute to endeavors of mutual benefit.

The whole idea of "democratizing innovation" is what I wanted to do. I thought I could change the world, make it better.

I wanted to pass along ideas, concepts, answers, questions, and conversations to those that would benefit from them.
