To accelerate progress, we need to talk as much about adopting innovations already available as about creating something entirely new. One of my favorite book titles emphasizes that point, “If only we knew what we know.” More rapid progress is at our fingertips. We need to learn about and accelerate adoption of what already has been shown to work. Of course, adoption is a process; most successful programs have idiosyncrasies driven by local leadership, cultures and situational variables. So we also must learn what we can import from those successes.
Collaborations can help accelerate adoption. While business competitors might be hesitant to share (at least some things), non-profits, professions and governments stand to improve performance dramatically through accelerated adoption of proven innovations.
