Collaborative Inquiry

How do you get a group of people collaborating to solve a problem?

The answer to this question is called Collaborative Inquiry, according to Warren Berger in a conversation on The Knowledge Project. It’s the idea of getting people collaborating on answering a particular question together. This is evident in the start-up culture where founders and innovators start with a question or a problem and collaborate together on developing the solution.

In A More Beautiful Question, Warren Berger cites the revelatory questions that inspired a number of successful innovations. These are a few:
What if we could map the DNA of music?
Innovation: Pandora
Why can’t everyone accept credit cards?
Innovation: Square
Why aren’t football players urinating more?
Innovation: Gatorade
