We’ve spent time at at North Carolina State with Rich Linton, the dean of their College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. We began to explore how our work in agile strategy and cognitive diversity in teams could assist the College of Agriculture with two important initiatives that they are undertaking. The first involves North Carolina State’s Plant Sciences Initiative. The second involves the Food Processing Innovation Center.
This work complements an initiative already underway with the Lab and the Whistler Center. You can learn more about that initiative in the slide deck below. In addition, the Lab is partnering with the Arrowhead Center at New Mexico State University to explore how agile strategy disciplines can accelerate the formation of regional food systems.
The Director of the Lab at UNA and co-author of Strategic Doing: 10 Skills for Agile Leadership, Ed’s work has focused on developing new models of strategy specifically designed to accelerate complex collaboration in networks and open innovation. He is the original developer of Strategic Doing.
