Find non-educated talents worldwide early enough, offer them scholarship and bring them into your workforce. It will boost companies' innovative capabilities, by bringing people with totally different background and capabilities. Quote Napoleon Bonaparte: "Every soldier carries a marshal's baton in his pack".
Nowadays, if you want to make career in the big Anglo-Saxon company, almost prerequisite is that you have finished one of the top 10 MBA schools. People enter in 22 in the corporate world and in age of 35, it's already clear if someone is CEO material or not. Therefore, that opportunity is almost exclusively tied to small portion of upper middle-class kids.
In Anglo-Saxon world are popular MBAs, finance, medical and law educations; engineering is for freaks and geeks. In former communist countries technocrat elite have been chosen among engineers (e.g. in China all nine members of the standing committee of the Politburo are trained engineers - at least they were all engineers few years ago). What about some poor people worldwide, that haven't got chance for education, despite fact that in their genes is fantastic management potential? Those people will start entrepreneurial business in Nigeria, Malaysia, Zimbabwe, Detroit ghettos, Belorussia, Bolivia, Liverpool's suburb…
Major European football / soccer clubs have their own football schools. In addition, they have a scouts worldwide who identify young talents at age of 9 to 14, bring them into the club, hoping that for cheap price they will evolve into the great players. It's approach that pays-off.
Imagine that you have corporate scout's teams to find these young entrepreneurs worldwide, with capabilities to sell ice to Eskimos; despite fact that they are poorly educated, you offer them to join the company, give them management education (management practice they already have in their blood) and let them working in sales (for example). In addition to MBA preppies, you will have in your sales taskforce people with completely different survival instincts, with ability to make a quick decisions. Are you willing to go for it, to create "Global Discovery Program" in the company and check how much more sales it will generate few years later?
The same principal is with blue-collar workers. Companies usually offer jobs to the educated people; how many young boys and girls are living in the poverty, without education and have IQ above 150? If you have scouts to find them, educate them and employ them, company will tremendously improve competence base and bust innovation capabilities. Is it enough to trigger "Global Talent Program"?
