Sub-title : The "IN powers of 18" ratio.
Think and explore multiverse design to organize your next innovation wave tactic.
Do you have an innovation strategy with a clear priority? Think again, you are stuck by your own gravity.
One single priority can prevent you from innovating on the right level of energy.
Few companies investigate and assess the surface(s), volumes, velocity, waves, of their innovation efforts.
How about getting beyond the limit of our individual or collective mind horizon and free ourselves of local attraction field, for wilder and fringe innovation thinking? Approaching a singularity point.
This hack is some kind of initiatic brain activation workout, for innovative co-operative talent development.
It is a trigger for quantum leaps.This inductive experience is 100% thought driven. However inputs are rooted into the layers and loops of business grounds.Outputs is a framework, including some metrics leads.
Our former real-case story (see "18 Laps" entangled series) established a definition of a ratio, applied on a multi-years field experience.Once the simplified ratio was established, we opened doors for related stories and hacks.
This experience of thought explores more sophisticated geometry and metrics, as a fringe track itinerary to get out of actuals boundaries .The method is applicable to an entire company, as well as any development department.
This is the hack door, (or is it a window, or a corridor ?) between stories, actuals and possible futures.It is a meta-structure linking 18 different innovation leads in temporary combinations, as possible tactics .
An energizing future oriented multi-levels labyrinth made of probabilities, promising innovative road-maps design. Only "Might be" paths to fringe innovation, of course, because of quantum design uncertainty.

18 Black Holes hack likely require high energy reading and attention for exploration.Physicists figured the puzzle of particles paradoxes thanks to eight dimensions and above models.
Boundaries keep extending as well...beyond the challenge dead-lines.Sections of the hack appearing blur or incomplete are the effect of a time lag between observation and light transmission. Familiar for all searching space.
It is open to envision a broader ambition, where innovation tactic for a company can be designed upon different universes rebound, energy exchanges, ripples and entangled effects between our 18 dimensions.
It is a kind of "swimming effect method" on a "spaghetti strings theory", applied to innovation tactic for daring companies worried about missing opportunities.It is a solution to prevent tunnel sight blindness.
No panic : explanations are coming soon in the very next sections of the hack.
A combinatory ratio is defined as a tool to evaluate the "innovating powers of innovation" benchmark.
So the innovation symphony of a company is not written as a single note melody sounding like a lethal flat signal.
Space and time being an absolute minimum for soundwaves to deploy, bloom, shake our eardrums, shock our brain and move us (emotionally and intellectually) and our lines of resistance (entrepreneur wise).
We are talking a 18 questions/dimensions universe.Or " multiverse" framerwork.
Fair enough.That is some stretched goal.So an innovation condition recommended by the MIX.
This is complex model ( known as "The Eighfold Way", "Strings Theory ", "Superstrings model" , "String-Nets theory" , "wraparound universe " and very recent "Loops model"), to accomodate paradoxal behaviours. how Physicists were able to get out of the puzzling universe of particles.They moved to eight dimensions and above
The theory has been inspired and is extrapolating from the Innovating Innovation Mix Challenge structure.
The logic is derivated from the moonshots list for "simplexity" purpose.
We use analogy with the multi-universe strings and loops theories, although with simplexified approach talking to most of us, for the sake of allowing business innovation related exchanges.
Visualization by Jeff Bryant and based on concepts from A.J. Hanson.
Few companies investigate and assess the surface(s), volumes, velocity, waves, of their innovation efforts.Most favor pretty conventional mechanics laws and simple blueprint design.Because it is easier to explain and sell, as it is to assess risks.
Investigation of efforts could lead to benchmark the company collective mental limits and portrait a raw description, far away from idealized image.
It is difficult enough to engage in a change venues, for paths barely are flat boulevards as a start.
When adventuring on innovation wide open spaces, global corporate intiatives, as much as start-ups, aim at getting on the familiar Milky-way, to smoothen delivery risks
Design is to be understood as the selection, for a desired function and optimized cost, of dimensions, materials, objects, organizations, systems, plans.
Aesthetics being an option. Failure not really, although trials and errors is a virtuous process for innovators, thinkers, artists and entrepreneurs, something managers tend to forget or deny.
Dimensions being the ones ruling the universes of innovation and business development, in a particular area or time, and defining its shape.
Although the organization where experience takes place is defined as innovative, no official R&D program has been set up for such long distance and multi dimension dive.
This "thought experience" is analyzed as a stand-alone effort.However, it is entangled to the chain of 18 laps stories. State evolution of related parts impact each other. It is a fundamental effect at work in collective intelligence design.
It is some practical illustration of the concept, put at work as in a virtual R&D lab / incubator environment.In other words, if "18 laps stories" are the matter of reality, "18 Holes hack" is the anti-matter, offering augmented vision perspectives.
Therefore, smart readers will also find out part of the problem examples, and different solutions in the above series.
If time pressure is saving them a chance to carve space for reading all of this looping material.

Abundant food for thoughts we wish, containing traces of nuts and other potentially toxic elements for managers suffering from allergies to concepts.
(Beware, keep in mind it is an exploration mode : about 70% identified. Still made of 30% dark matter....not even to mention dark energy whose weighting is puzzling our edge theorists...)
"18 black holes" for a title can easily (mis)-lead to a nice golf course.It would be a mismatch more than a MIX Mash..
Black seems only to bring the opposite feeling of enlightment to many.Think the opposite.Black holes and black matter are difficult to catch but quite bright, numerous, powerful and energetic.The least to say.
Golf would be an appealing outdoor demanding exercise.Precision skills development drive.Diversity in relief. Nice substitute with18 more reachable black holes. All good.
the journey sounds quite more challenging, brain-draining, with some potentially gorgeous astrophysical scenery too, rewarding imaginary, metaphysical and concentration efforts.
No free lunch.No fast-food either. Reader's digest version is not available by choice.
Efforts to resist the inevitable attraction grounding force of definitive statements such as : "This is impossible.This does not make any sense" and likewise.
Also bouncing back on the wall of "Let's reduce the scope for clarity " heavy pendulum.
Again "simplexity" is the choice for this hack : Reduce the management of complexity, but recognize its full value.
The late research shows that black holes have properties that resemble the dynamics of both solids and liquids. The results are published in the Physical Review Letters Dec 2012, 10th. Fresh News.

Young recruits on-boarded for innovation initiatives or contests feel like scouting on a "Terra Incognita".
Draft maps provided during the very limited induction path where innovation, creativity, and other collective intelligence oriented values cherished by the company are not defining any solid territory yet.
This hack is also by itself for young recruits an encouragement to participate in strategic diverging abilities and opportunity to go bolder than previous generation veterans by stepping on their shoulder to look higher and further.
Same lack of benchmarks during pre-innovative events briefing, unless when accompanied by specialist consulting resources, assuming such specialists re-invent their own methods and scope at an innovation compliant pace.
This is the hack door (or is it a window, or a corridor?) between stories and hacks.
Or a meta-structure linking 18 different innovation leads in temporary combinations mix . (see combination slides in attached presentation)
A future oriented labyrinth made of probabilities, promising for prospective road-maps design maybe?
In ancient mythology and wisdom, Ariadna did use a string to find her way. And she gave her name to a useful algorithm (known as "Ariadna's thread") powerful enough to offer solutions to maze questioning, the upper dynamic state of labyrinths.
Our Ariadna and other co-authors are designated as "Strings Tuners Linchpins". It is not a single mythic goddess but a set of diverse minds organized to work within a co-Operative intelligence dynamic, in order to illustrate this experience of thoughts in a virtual labs.
They tune instruments and even down to each string individually, then harmonizing and equalizing all parts with wavefronts sinusoidal beats.
That is to say stretch goals, ideas and concepts until it sounds or feel (when above the eardrums spectrum or eyes scope) like a unique pulse.
The above graph shows that the mechanical approach ( sinusoid) is globally delivering the average continum but not at all satisfactory to sensitive lean pitch (Linchpin?) ears and mind.
it is necessary to very locally introduce complex micro fine (de-)tuning that can go up or down and by not symetric quantities. Especially when getting to the lower and upper fringes.
We are talking about counter-intuitive settings.
Light and sound have so much in common.
Eyes and ears are major channels for us as human being to survive and to be touched. Many of us have a decent range of abilities on that regard.Nose and tongue are much specialized senses that requires real skills and heavy training.
Sharp vision is a key to get access to the unseen while a tuned ear is quicker access to a spectrum of vibes, dear to many music passionate fans, afficionados, amateurs, you name these people that resonates to each his own style and background.
Strings tuning is definitely an art, although there are very interesting waves theory involved.
The most surprising being the need for some "off-pitch" tuning in order to get the sharp sound that a professional musician will expect. It is called "stretching the upper and lower octaves" for "Equal tempered scale" on a piano. Back to pink square # 1 (stretch goals)? of # 18 (Diversity) ?
We need to be somehow "fooled" to buy in the complex MIX of vibrations.Vision benefits from such an approach
Does it ring a bell with interest of diversity and dissenders inputs?
We wish this will guide us in this demanding scheme.
To stimulate or de-stress the reading of such demanding material, String Tuners Linchpins also provide a playlist of recommended soundtracks and videos related to each dimension.
We wish it can relax or activate the tension of strings and minds in a balanced cycle..

Here are extracts from the space observation pointing out the 18 dimensions fields of the experience, and moment for us together to establish their nature for a future model, and whenever fortunate enough to deliver : a complexity ratio.
Innovating Innovation : D1. “stretch” goals that encourage break-out thinking.
Strings Tuners Linchpins selected inputs : ....The stretch is a geometric effort that some wizard designers use for giving polarizing properties to transparent materials.
What does this tell us ?
Let’s stretch the analogy itself (squared action) : each individual in corporate environment surely has his own ‘polarizing’ ability, his own way to orientate his momentum, skills, knowledge,talents and beliefs for action.
“Stretching goals” in relevant and controlled limits at the collective level in a highly noded or grid-like organization is a way to ‘stress’ the system in a very constructive way as the ‘polarizing’ properties of each individual can be aligned to generate a macro polarizing effect. The extended ambition of ‘stretched goals’, in a sense, provides the ‘polarizing’ effect that help modify the pre-existing reality and make a noticeable difference on the company’s output. Augmented reality is giving acuity to sight or mind.
In this particular collective ‘stretching mode’ , ‘break out thinking’ is an absolute to encourage, it derives naturally from the fact that the organization is no longer in the ‘business as usual ‘state.
In other words, a coherent collective state implies logically a different collective output than usual.
Is it beneficial to stay in that state for long ? Not so sure. High ‘polarization’ collective capacity is beneficial for impact, but the associated ‘filtering effect’ on reality also means denying the versatility of real-life and need for cycles.
A clear implication of this is the following : as soon as ‘stretching goals’ becomes a matter of collective interest for powerful macro effect, it is also interesting to ‘unstretch” in a managed way the collective system for return to equilibrium, for sake of preserving the variety of possibly beneficial goals for the company, and allow again diverging individual behaviours.
You can thus better align a vision, a strategy.
It is a 2 to 3 dimensions geometry, itself folded into one dimension.
Some kind of a string theory already ?

When getting closer to actual boundaries or singularity point (what we can see, what the company scope is, what core business means, which core competencies are available) behaviors and momentum change.
This is driven by both distance (where is the horizon line, seems out of reach or even sight !) and the atomic clock. Like an outspace innovation pool diving practice.... It is inevitable for Gravity to takes its toll. Time is taking its own tax as well...
This a typical Dimension 1 kind of exercise.
Palo Alto old school boys would find classic material for "Panic/ Comfort / Boredom Zones" calibration.
Get people to dive in and watch out that discomfort can trigger a survivor reaction (frog leap / boiled leap experience) tackling unanticipated new heights - unpreviously reached..
While it is key not to let them reach the fringe of the energy black hole vortex, sure road to black out ot their cortex!
Singularity field is of high interest for bulb lighting and mind cracking. Sounds like a verse or a rhyme. Well, rhymes are not damaging thoughts for innovation. Think the ooposite.Think about japanese koans. Insightful disguise.

"In/ In".D2. Leverage new social technologies to bring the best ideas to the fore.
Strings Tuners Linchpins selected inputs: What are "twitt, link, goog or like" exactly ? What kind of universe, or at least dimension are we touching here?
Theory can embrace 2 different hypothesis : look a the global element formed by the growth and expansion of communities, or consider only the information exchanges and aggregation made possible by unexpected bridges, leading to new energy transfers and eventually creation of different elements, elusive or more stable. Ideas beign one specific form only.
Collective intelligence being regarded as creation of a field is another output.
There is no way to think or design an innovation organization without this dimension today.
Interactional power-relations and demultiplied equations brought to the surface thanks to google-sociophil and algorythm tools deployment.
One can also note that leveraging social technology not only modifies the quality and potential impact of best ideas ( before being ‘brought to the fore’, ideas will be challenged and enriched) , but also amplifies the ‘absorption capacity’ of the company : ideas exposed to many individuals can enter the knowledge background of the company in all their diversity, with many more facets and potential implications connected to current activities.
Leveraging new social technologies means better ‘wiring” to the operational capacities of the organization

"In/ In" : D3. Accelerate the innovation process through simulation, and other means.
Strings Tuners Linchpins selected inputs : Yes, all about some kind of Higgs Boson, particles and fields search.
Acceleration is the entry door for high energy.
High energy is huge resources demanding and therefore simulation a serious silver bullet.
Big data is now or pretty soon affordable resource to not only design models, including products, but all parameters calculation, or illustration, or evaluation. It is not about how technically difficult it is, innovation is about how easy can we simulate everything, from idea to weighting or touching. R&D lab rats who dare to mix science and consumer behavior will add a dimension.
But D3 is only about "how fast do one realize something new can be tested".
Likely getting closer to the fringe carry opportunities to get attraction and higher momentum.
So coupling with D1 is a must try combination.
With the implication of also generating powerful compound or transmission effects . Acceleration can be seen as a key not only to gain collective momentum and melt or explode classical planned timelines, but also as a way to generate collective entanglement. A particular dynamic state of shared interests, in which , ideas, innovation seeds (including highly interesting concepts that can’t be described in the classical referential of the organization or follow its rules) can multiply their chance of being enriched and matured with all the computation power of the organization.
If that priviledged collective regime is possible in a company , acceleration managed at key moments is surely a way to preserve the ‘coherence” state necessary for entanglement , by preserving the global mind from low interest, diverging coupling with secondary issues.

In/In : D4.Upgrade the innovation skills of every individual.
Strings Tuners Linchpins selected inputs: The long tail of knowledge is the dimension not to be missed.
Global Expertise is the sum of experts, engineers technicians, manual operators, craftmen, artists and crowd wisdom.
And each point of the tail can be lifted up by one unit. Or more.
D4 dimension is often flat in minds and strategies.
It is like we would only see strings as lines, it is important to get.more in depth, more intrusive, and unfold the hidden efforts and opportunities.
Many leaders dream about aligning their troops...well innovation is likely to be looked at with a different angle and scale.
Company must be a strategic line when seen from distance, but closing up must reveal a more diverse and complex structure, like DNA double helix or strings and cosmic strings.

In/ In : D5. Make experimental capital available to anyone with a bright idea
Strings Tuners Linchpins selected inputs : You need to fight against individuals, procedures and bureaucracy, if you observe them ruling innovation engagement with "priority AAA" as the understanding of ABC ranking on the field of investments for SMART innovation.
Same nice statement from collective stupidity (anti-matter of collective intelligence) as "Location.Location.Location" in real estate.
Here is a close loop with D6 to be discovered in a glance.
Bright has little to do with "easy to understand" or "familiar lansdscape", or "established road-map".
Think about the famous fool seeking fior his keys within the lampost ray of light radius.
Ability to divert and diversify capital in advance (sanctuarization) and on the spot.(re-allocation) is not a typical dimension that controllers put into the equation, even less on the balance sheet.
It is nothing to compare to infinite space axis.It can be an easy to manipulate sub dimension within defined boundaries and limits, so easy to put under (positive) control.
D5 Tags: “not in the cards”, crossovers, positive bets , allocation, limited axis, ABC classification.

In/ In : D6. De-risk innovation through low-cost experimentation, partnering, and other strategies
Strings Tuners Linchpins selected inputs : Because uncertainty is an innovation booster, despite how counter-intuitive. (This is documented by Nassim N. Taieb, a professor of risk Engineering at NYU).
You need to fight against individuals, procedures and bureaucracy, if you observe them ruling innovation engagement with risk analysis as the main filter. Here are close loops with D12 and D5.
Demystifying risk first, before catalyzation. Pace-push emerging ideas, as in the innovation equation novel is - despite perceptions - not always equal to risk. Risk analysis can help foresees failures (impairing-risks) but it is not a to-be or systematic flow. Think, there is the actual probability and the perceived risk. So, very uncertain in essence.
Time to move from uncertainty to opportunity. A single chance to take, and be entrepreneurs of re-creation and off-grids solutions.

Besides the scales to reach the clouds and several adoption horizons along the way. A vast ramp of technological maturity: development, open-sky test and revamp.
Exchange traditional linearities against agile beliefs and a great deal of potential for contributions. Lots of to be-born contributors who, by the way are also believers. So new deployments means new vision, first. Vision is belief-appealing.

In/ In D8.Carve out space time for innovation
Strings Tuners Linchpins selected inputs : The most innovative frameworks to describe how our universe works such as "Theory of Loops" are able to get rid of the time in their equation. There is no way for us leaving in our material world, scale and business model to erase this dimension in the design of any plan.
An interesting lead is to take into account the gravitational effects between different elements with big gaps in size or mass, such as a massive innovation project and a small pulsing idea development.
Or to look twice a the way we split time between operational goals and innovation.
Making adjustments to the scheduling approach within compressed deadlines. Seizing room for innovation where agendas are surrounded by sitting-meetings.
Can we ditch busyness roll waves in favor of a set of creative time filters? The question is: what can you really do without ? Busyness mode doesn’t bring much flexibility from within, I am afraid. think, there is the “good” and there is the “different”. Is the good really good enough?
B Plan: time scarcity as bottom line driving innovation. “Time is money” adage ? Time and concentration as limited resources: the more the constraints, the higher the focus to cope with these constraints. That’s the value of smaller chunks that easily fit into tight schedules. Think rocks and sand. Or twit in 140 letters. For some higher-end developments sliced-time would be more difficult to maintain. Strategic choice: time you choose to consume (allocate) or autopilot mode. Spark vs. inertia.

In/ In D9. Organically grow “communities of passion” around promising ideas
Strings Tuners Linchpins selected inputs : Overcoming frustrations at early steps where the community starts with few flower buds remaining to bloom and disseminate. Especially at the start, where some question marks might arise, you need to water continuously, and sow some brain-cracker seeds to ensure rapid, sustainable and then autonomous growth. Fundamentally iterative. Collective incubation. Diversity culture for healthy chemistry. Passion of people for people’s passion.
Passion for compelling ideas, experiential proposals, daring change-making.

StringsTuners Linchpins selected inputs : Captors and sensors. Chord sensitivity.
Avoiding too well known yet uncertainly avoidable hurdles and the long list of advocacy-bureaucracy indicators that would kill any new idea in its cradle in the absence of a proper ROI name. As there is no certainty or crystal ball. Indicators would be more of a thermometer. Taking the water’s temperature, not measuring (yet) which would bring more golden medals straight from the start, which will be done step by step later.

This is where involvement comes into play. Different Gens exposed to the innovation tune and going beyond aesthetics drills of master communications and newly deployed tools.
In any new approach it will not take long to notice that engagement in co-creation remains limited without partnering
with other entities or even sharing as a very first step

In/ In D12.Knock down bureaucratic hurdles that frustrate innovation
Strings Tuners Linchpins selected inputs : This whole 18BHI2 hack is entangled with the " Neutrinos Quantic Management Hack". This is where the dilemna between strategic priorities alignment and openess to orthogonal ideas exposed by Maria M.Capozzi And Ari Kellen in their "Innovating at scale" post kicks in.
To insert this dimension into our topography (Yes strings wave fronts Of Tales from the topographic ocean as Background music and bridge to the 18 Laps story elements), we have recycled some Management 2.0 and 3.0 matrix in our design. (cf pptx materials)

In/ In D13.Make innovation an important component in compensation and reward decisions
Strings tuners selected inputs: Shallow and deepest level of encouragement. Let athletes experience the race before all. Raise collective effort - periodically - with judges taking the final bets, allowing several categories. Encourage radical differentiation, surprises, offbeats, risk-takers. Sponsors-praised and global visibility. Worldwide emulation following Stimul’In (loop with lap 4)

In/ In D14.Involve customers deeply in the innovation process
Strings Tuners Linchpins selected inputs :
Misalignment and "ON/NO-mirroring" between the insiders "DNA/AND" the outsiders is a risk. Authentic connections as waterproof-check - far from trivial strings.
Synergetics needs re-aligned in the making- through process.
D14 Tags : "Fish" attitude
In/ In D15.Better manage the tension between operational goals and innovation goals
Strings Tuners Linchpins selected inputs : Quite a few shifts in mindset required. Trending short times to market and delivery doesn’t mean rapid speed is the only way to go. Allow more timely disruptions and back and forth moving between strategic thinking and creatively making. Aesthetic workout but not only. First overcoming the mirages or feared contradictions. Envisioning distant goals - optifog reality.
While operational goals are most of sponsors and management top business priority - and accountability - innovation goals shall not come lower in the ladder of performance levers. It’s beyond one ladder-step at a time. Unsystematized delusion (tension results in break as deeply anchored belief) stringed stretch till re-entanglement of both future evolution and immediate non-linear alignment. Innovation as food for growth. Rallying the hidden back-end profits and earnings with the omnipresent quarter-view drivers. Dare to trade?
D15 Tags : Fog, reality-check, Delusions
In/ In D16.Build a foundation of distinct widely shared innovation insights
Strings Tuners Linchpins selected inputs : Designing the right communication and accessibility tools that will work at several levels and will turn your swimmers into believers - both at a deeper and broader scale.
Increasing not only the access to water sources but rather the kind of information to be found, retrieved and further shared. Diverse insights for diverse audiences. Offering co-development opportunities beneath offering insights.
Lack of visibility (linked to the audience perception) or lack of resonance (linked to the audience appropriation) are 2 endangering blackholes to be addressed through a better grasp on communication tools and processes (back to D7): open widely, train users and give rights for inputs/modifications.

In/ In D18. Ensure innovation efforts take full advantage the organization's diversity
Strings Tuners Linchpins selected inputs : Innovation like emotion is not produced only by perfectly balanced signals and harmony.
Temporary out of balance, out of tune, out of order moments are efficient constructions to move the lines or create a slight drift changing mood, reactions and outputs.
Uncertainty (also a tiny town in Far East Texas) and disorder, under certain so called convexity and assymetry are delivering high payoffs ( used in statistical finance models) especially in so-called opaque models. Here is a postivie condition for a combination with D6 actually.
Because all human beings based interactions are opaque (sometimes as muddy waters or even black holes), it is not a loser bet to add this dimension in the innovation process led by human brains and collective interlligence dynamics.

Physicists were able to get out of the trap of the puzzling universe of particles.
They moved to a eight dimensions complex model (also known as "The Eighfold Way" and "Strings Theory ", "Superstrings model" and very recent "Loops model") to accomodate paradoxal behaviours of elements and forces at work.Strings theorists have achieved some innovative description that are the only one to date able to reconcialite some paradoxes, thanks to 10 dimensions models.
They even started with 26 before to find a way to reduce this complexity.
Management searchers will be inspired by this cumbersome, although ambitious and somehow successful experience plan.
So we learned from the 18 Laps real life experience that looking at the surface, and slightly under and above, we can establish this first census and first order in/in ratio .
Square ratios below and above surface. Credit AcDepeige 2012
To go to the full squared ratio, we invited to look into each square, and to establish a derivated score, about how much we are only applying the lever in a classical way, or if we can estimate some innovative insight on each innovation lever. In sub-atomic world, the strings theory insists on the potential of interactions such as splits and re-connections.
The ultimate ratio, is the one where we can look at the combinations of two or more levers. (see mappings proposed in the slides of attached presentation)
In order to experiment and estimate the Power of 18 ratio, like looking within the smallest line or beyond the visible to unveil unexpected bridges and tunnels (some call this strings states looking down and close, others vortex looking far and up) .....
The road-map (or do you prefer the experience plan?) to push innovation into any organization, business or non-profit, group, community, team is available.
The solution is to consider it not as menu list on which to cherry pick the group favorite dimension.
It is to get out of this too comfortable zone where most minds evolve.
It is to practice a diverse set of thought exercises and chain them timely to break through paradigms.
It is to train in the talents pool and sponsors funding all entreprises, then get out of squared surface and move to open water and open innovation where strings, holes or looped systems are giving up to multi-direction benchmarks on some distant point, only flagged as a vision, yet still limited to the visible surface.
Already a stretch goal , first step and dimension 1 flavored........
Medley of individuals searchers and co-authors and styles are a good organization for this first level of team challenge.
It can only drive the score and in/in power of 18 ratio up.
(Mapping credit FJL 2013)
Each lever is defined by two arrows, representing orientation of energy as a field.Forces can add up or cancel some if the other levers.Some may ahve no interaction. Combination may led to the release of a new idea, a new development, like the release of a new particle within a nuclear collider.
How about D2XD12XD18 ?
Taking two of the levers put together brings a new concept. It is a disjunction from the space of knowledges to the space of concepts. It has been defined into the CK theory (see credits).
Mirroring and moving from real life experience (18 Laps) to experience of thought (18 Holes) is some kind of square approach as described in the CK theory. Associating (C)oncept and (K)nowledge.
We knew what means "dark" and what is the "matter". But the "dark matter" became a new concept in the 1970s.

Beware, it is a different tactic from the square ratio tactic relying upon innovating on innovation described in the Lap swimming story.Both can be cumulated or integrated.
CK theory also includes the use of a technique and protocol called "Crazy concepts" helping to recycle the research materials and leads.In our case, the talent pool and drills may play the role of crazy concept within the first surface square ratio approach. it allows to move from business life real experience from "Freestyle John Linchpin" to a disjunction into the swimming world, as it is not a single analogy but a complete framework projection.
It can be viewed as another "Crazy concept" for each special drill (X/18 stories) considered as more actual and specific, closer to the business field or to each "pink square".
.But 18 Black Holes can play the role of "Crazy concept" to the 18 Laps story as a whole.
Multiple links within the 18 stories, as much as between the stories and the hack are a set of strings and loops, as described into the string and loops theories.
Set theory without choice axiom (Independent from the other axioms of the Set theory, [Cohen 1963, 1964]) explains that, in the space of concepts, concepts can only be partitioned or included, not searched nor explored.
Doing this, we get expansions of the space of concept and we enlarge the space for characterizing innovation with new Dimensions combinations.
D1x D4x D12 opens us new horizons.
Now, keep going back to some more disjunction : How about the impact of some super symmetry topology for each of this innovation pink square?
We would be suddenly up to 36 Dimensions to choose from or to combine for our innovation organization design.
The power of 18+ is an output of this multiple entanglement at work for the MIX Challenge.It can be reproduce in any business innovation case.
This can be a soleution for compnaies drying out their innovation forces and elements with over-utilization of a mono-culture and growing process.
Impact apply at preparation and execution level of any innovation event or strategy.
This is at minima the door and a glass window to enlarge vision of the innovation field (flat) or space (around) and beyond (strings).
It is open to envision and engage a broader ambition, where innovation tactic for a company can be designed around different universes rebound, ripples and entangled effects between the 18 dimensions, and inevitabily beyond.
It is a kind of "swimming effect method" on a "spaghetti strings theory", applied to innovation tactic for daring companies worried about missing opportunities.
Outputs are of the hack a method, a framework, including some metrics leads.
It is a solution to prevent short and tunnel sight forms of blindness.
The combinatory ratio defined as a tool to evaluate the "innovating powers of innovation" is allowing quantified benchmarks about the number of combination leveraged into any innovation process at work within a company, about its global score and eventually as a comparison to other businesses.
Practical impact of application of the method is to unlock innovation design shapes.
It is to lift aside some road-blocks at ideas generation and fine tuning as well as within the incubation or execution time.
It raises up the "power of" number within the ratio, enlarging exponentially the odds to identify or create valuable ideas or models with business value.
Co-operative intelligence is the upper level where unsafe conditions are the incentive for seeking unheard proposals to go back quicker to the safe side.

Step 1 : The very first step is to move the line of the horizon by challenging the visible innovation processes in place in the company.
Many will stick to the idea of one single priority and fight against dispersion of efforts.
The goal of first step is to open eyes and minds to the idea of "surface" of the the existing innovation scope.
(If none, a Zero step will be to select one item on the 18 moonshots matrix and immediatly move to step 1.)
That is to move from 1 to a combination of 2 dimensions.
Very often it will already be the case, although it is not recognized as such.
Therefore to answer collectively to the question of the tonic and starting note of the innovation melody in the company.
D1 ? D7 ? There is no good starting point, it is either existing or a decision.
Step 2: next is to move the line of ceiling, floors and sides by challenging the selection process in place in the company to support specific innovations.
Step 3: next is to move the line of time by challenging the funding process in place in the company to support specific innovations outputs but also inputs processes.

Entrepreneurs are often the first to dare testing and self-evaluating their own outputs.Sometimes a lethal experience. Experience of thought are pretty safe, it is so fortunate.
Transparency is the our key value: I did rate my appreciation of this co-operative work with as much objectivity as possible. I fell it is fair as it is not my work any longer but something else belonging to the community and to give momentum to the rating process as for any innovation is in the need of initial impulse.

I like the idea of "fringe innovation thinking"; innovation at the edge (of a black hole); value-creation at the border of chaos, complexity and order -- https://plus.google.com/u/0/100641053530204604051/posts/fPzwfQvhXst

Thank you Joachim.
As you see the piece is not yet complete.
We will go as close as possible of the fringe hoping we will not disappear forever ! I had difficulty with the temporary web editor.So I decided to go live knowing I still need to pull many strings....stay tuned...I am actively promoting your wave. If you look at my laps story you'll see how much water is an fascinating element to myself. So much far away from conventional order management...
