Stephen Flemings:

There is a bigger picture here, though. The re-introduction of the Renaissance Man. A Renaissance Man is a person whose expertise spans a significant number of different subject areas. How is that useful? Jack-of-all-trades, master of none, right? Whatever happened to doing only what you are best at? Let’s reorganize a division between doing and creating. We create solutions and vision. Then we do stuff. Everyone has the capacity to be creative. We also have particular talents for doing certain things. We should only do what we are best at, but everyone can contribute to the solution. Opening up the creation process is where you will get a renaissance out of your people. By creating a system that allow people to contribute more of themselves than just their obviously labelled skills, we can create a human centered culture of innovation.
