From Tom Wentz on 9/4/2009 "Caution: As Dr Albert-Laszlo Barabasi, Professor Notre Dame University, in his book Linked, 2002 states, “Arriving at Mass Customization does not depend upon our intelligence to find the path within the Mass Production Business Model" The "intelligence" within the Industrial Age Business Model does not contain the answers. It matters now how "smart" the current management team is. Said another way, the intelligence, the brilliance that was designed into "jet planes" would not allow the Astronauts to fly into space. Therefore, Vision precedes even "intelligence." The intelligence to design all the space vehicles came from Simulations. The intelligence needed to design the business model of the future will come from the "passion" of the people once they have Simulated Mass Customization and can see how it all must work."
