Talking to experts can expose bad equilibria, the moves necessary to get out of them, and considerations for doing them like cost constraints

Sub Hypotheses

  • People in a discipline know where the bad equilibria are
  • People in a discipline have hunches about possibilities for getting out of bad equilibria
  • People would talk to you about things if they think that it will enable them to work on things
    • This would suggest that we need to connect in their mind with the possibility of funding

The danger here is that Structuring knowledge is expensive

The reason for the conversation piece is that Context is important and underrated for knowledge transfer



  • Have multiple ‘exploratory’ conversations in multiple disciplines with experts and play with different ways of asking questions, but make sure you’re targeting clear


Super hypothesis:You can create a program design discipline that enables better research and development
