You can't just throw people who come from different perspectives in a room, lock the door and come back in an hour and expect them to have solved these problems. It takes time for people to develop a shared vernacular. It takes engineered serendipity, the creation of serendipitous moments in which people can begin to decode each other's professional vernacular and build their own shared vocabulary. And it's from there that we see an emergent soup of nascent collaborations emerge. – Andrew Zolli
