2 What if knowing is not enough?

Sugata Mitra, is an educational scientist who has been working on the problem of how kids learn where there are no teaches or schools – he posed the question “what if knowing was not longer enough?”

 

We don’t need managers who have been jam packed full of more management theory – which, ironically, might make them resistant to other ideas!!

What if the most important skill a manager could have is the capacity to find out – and apply this in novel and innovative ways to existing problems? And if this is the case, this is also true of all members of teams and organisations – their greatest asset now becomes their ability to access good information, make sense of it, and test its applicable in practice, continually adjusting and innovating along the way.
