Leveraging Lateral Thinking to Solve Complex Problems with Brent Feldman from Matchbox Design Group

He cites the value of lateral thinking in solving complex problems and highlights his preference for a general approach due to the wider lens it provides. He also references NASA’s program of posting long-standing unanswered questions to the public, which often yielded answers from people outside the science field.
