Based on experiences at SRI, Curt Carlson writes about an organizational system focused on active learning, beyond to an orientation only of operating.
What sets our approach apart from others is that we consider value creation to be an exercise in active learning. Coming up with a novel product or service is not simply a matter of waiting for inspiration to strike but a process of using proven practices from the education sciences to gain insights and improve fast.
