My experience as a MiX contributor, as well as a practitioner who has perused the MiX for answers to some of my pressing, practical issues, is that there are a great number of great ideas on the MiX, but very few real, practical tools or solutions that I can leverage to solve issues that I have as a leader in a business committed to management innovation. This stands to reason, I think, given that the challenges that I face are often specific to our business, and the ideas that I read are generally specific to the circumstances of the writer's organization. Further, even if there are generalizable specific tactical stories, it's almost impossible to capture the requisite level of detail in a post on the MiX website. Incidentally, I've had a number of MiX-ers contact me to learn more about our organization, and what we've done--and the questions that they have about what I've written about Morning Star seem to validate this: they always understand the concepts, but need help translating those concepts to tactical plans for application in their organizations. I'd like the ability to create a "project" of sorts around a challenge that I face. I'd like to be able to invite selected MiX-ers to join me in solving the project--in a way that's specific to my organization. I believe that many of the challenges that innovating organizations face will only be solved through creative experimentation that brings perspectives from various disciplines to bear on the focus challenge. I'd like the MiX to be an online venue that allows me to bring the "project team" together to conquer my challenge--to frame up an experiment of sorts, to document (in a more comprehensive format) how we've approached solving the challenge, and to, ultimately, publish the document on the MiX as a "Case Study" of sorts. There are some posts here that have similar concepts included, but here are the keys, for me: 1. Projects are invite only. 2. These are extended-life (long-term) projects built around real, practical challenges; not short-term idea generation projects. This enables the MiX to develop a body of content (as case studies) that's deeper, and more comprehensive, than ideas or stories. I'd envision the case studies as very detailed how-to's that delve into the specific details--including the experiments that the poster tried, results, etc... Incidentally, I think to some degree, that this might simply be an extension of the post below (about allowing community members to suggest hackathons)--but I think what I'm looking for is deeper than a hackathon, and has a few distinct features. http://www.mixhackathon.org/content/allow-community-members-suggest-and-... Incidentally, I think that this allows MiX-ers to begin to build reputational capital. If I'm invited to participate in a project, and that project results in a well-received case study, this validates me as a management innovator.
