If you're focused on pragmatic change, the starting point is to find an edge. And that is typically a new market, a new technology, a new business model that has the potential to scale very rapidly, and ultimately actually to become the core of the business. So you start with an edge; rather than trying to convince the core to give you resources on the edge, the primary focus is looking out beyond your institution and say: 'Who could I mobilize to try to engage and drive some change on this edge?' So you're reaching out and getting leverage from beyond the institution, and that becomes a way to avoid the bottleneck of the core, that will resist giving you resources.
And then there's the opportunity to really learn faster as you get out on these edges. Take an ecosystem and not just connect to the resources and the skills that are available from people beyond your company, but create relationships where you're all learning faster as a result of connecting around performance challenges and figuring out creative new approaches to the business. And so in that respect you also achieve much more rapid learning and performance improvement.
