ISC Live Lab Co-investment and Return on Co-investment

Context.  In 2004, we were developing processes for engaging large groups of diverse stakeholders in strategic systemic change.

Co-investment.  In this long-term relationship with JFK, we have co-invested our intellectual capital of strategic systems thinking and processes for large-scale systems change, and our social capital of relationships with Mexican leaders engaged in similar processes.

Return on Co-investment.  The return on this co-investment was the development of many specific tools and processes for engaging an ever-evolving community, while leadership and engagement shifted to incoming members of the community over the years.
