Your ideas here are very helpful when applied to educational innovation as well. We are currently invested in an idea that seeks to stop imitating the educational reform ideas swarming around our nation, and instead seeks to offer individual teachers the opportunity to innovate--come up with the solutions that will push teaching and learning further. We are calling these innovators who lead without leaving the classroom "teacherpreneurs." Your point about not coming to the table with the end in mind is so crucial for new ideas to have room to form and grow. Thanks for providing some guiding principals to foster innovation.
