Could we create “Wicked Problems” Labs in an Innovation Center? Perhaps we identify the five wicked problems we want the government to consider. Them we assemble cross-functional and interagency teams to address each wicked problem in a seperate lab. The problem we have had so far is that the concept has been based on the organizationally stove-piped 20th century model. Innovation labs/teams should be created to address specific problems…and then should be dissolved at a certain point when the solutions and innovations are turned to the private sector or the agencies that are responsible for dissemination.
