  • LaDonna, this is a great presentation. I wrote a presentation two years ago on docstoc entitled 'Thinking in the box'. My approach was the need to know where you are (which box you are in) to know where to go (what ideas to generate). Why in the box and not out of the box> Because self-organizing system rearrange within defined boundaries. Being under pressure to accommodate their increasing numbers within limited space they change the box. I love this presentation.
