Why the SEA System?
- 1Complex problems require implicit knowledge, which cannot be codified.
Sharing of knowledge and best practices within communities makes implicit knowledge more visible.
- 2Collaboration around distributed work is becoming the norm.
Accelerators provide a platform for distributed action to create collective value.
- 3Learning is part of work, not separate from it.
Industry-specific accelerators enable the integration of work and learning.
- 4Ideas are decentralized by their very nature.
New ideas come from diverse networks, often from outside any defined organization.
- 5'Progress' is both a local and global phenomenon.
While any single solution always starts local, the nature of technology enables scalability at quasi-zero marginal costs, resulting in potentially global implications.
- 6Co-created knowledge through social learning is the foundation for progress.
The value of industry-specific acceleration lies in the depth of participants’ reflection and inquiry, and how they put co-created knowledge to action in their local community.
- 7Shared context is the foundation for a knowledge sharing environment.
Accelerators connect people who share stories and personal experiences in a way that builds understanding and insight.
- 8Collaboration and the free-flow of ideas is critical to enabling innovation.
Accelerators introduce collaborative processes to groups and organizations to encourage the free flow of ideas and exchange of information.
