How do we protect ourselves in a deeply interconnected world?

If interconnection is making us more vulnerable, are we engaging it to become stronger and more responsive at the same rate?

Four key questions to enable globally-networked learning

1. How do we ensure we get learning to the right people in the network — without deluging everyone with irrelevant information?

2. How do we move from collecting knowledge “just in case”, to connecting people “just in time”?

3. How do we operate as a boundaryless organization, seamlessly connecting with a variety of partners and pulling in expertise when and where needed, including those who are most affected by a development issue?

4. How do we increase ‘return on attention’, help people sift signal from the noise, and better deal with information overload?
