Success is no longer about individual talent, knowledge or skill. Success is about freeing ourselves from the blind spots that beset us all, and pooling our collective intelligence. In our latest RSA Short, best-selling author and columnist Matthew Syed shows where the best ideas come from and how we can apply these ideas to tackling the biggest challenges of our age. Individual intelligence is no longer enough, he argues; the only way to tackle complex problems is to harness of the power of the diverse collective.
