“The smartest person in the room is the room itself” is a quote from David Weinberger’s ‘Too Big to Know’. It summarizes the concept of collective intelligence very well. People are a fantastic source of inspiration and ideas, and collective intelligence lets us tap into this knowledge on a large scale. It is one of the most effective ways to unlock innovation.
