What if the best way to be innovative is not to try?

So if I’m looking to be more innovative’ maybe I’m looking in the wrong place. Innovation is a by-product of the process of collaborative problem-solving — it’s not the destination. As a development community we are trying to address complex problems in a changing world — the response may be a proven approach developed thirty years ago or something unprecedented. I want to be working with people who are passionate about solving problems at scale rather than magpies obsessed with finding shiny new innovative solutions.
