KeeneyValue-Focused Thinking, 1992, Harvard University Press, p. 3).

“Life is like a ten-speed bike. Most of us have gears we never use.”  (Charles M. Shulz).

“Without question, the most abundant, least expensive, most underutilized, and constantly abused resource in the world is human ingenuity.” (Dee Hock, 2005, One From Many: VISA and the Rise of Chaordic Organization, Berrett-Koehler, 55.)
