Creating Generational Legacies

Response to Steve Denning's proposition to employ a person based on the ability to learn vs what they know

 Curt's Hiring filter at SRI was to put creativity, curiosity, collaboration, and passion above specific skills.  I knew if they had these attributes they could learn almost anything — hey, that is what innovation is because, by definition, it is the creation of sustainable new knowledge.  

People had to  stand up every 2-8 weeks and present their value propositions. 

 This is a way to implement the kinds of ideas we believed in much more efficiently, effectively, and scalably, both inside and outside the enterprise. 

Heather MacgowanI could not agree more!
Education needs to balance both knowledge formation (expertise) and, perhaps more importantly, learning agility.
