The Mission of the Doug Engelbart Institute
Our Mission "Promote awareness of the scale, urgency, and complexity of the challenges we face.
Catalyze, launch, and shepherd an active, strategic pursuit of boosting the collective IQ on a scale commensurate with the rate, scale, and pervasiveness of change.
Create an exploratory environment where participants can collaborate, experiment, and set in motion advanced pilot outposts* in diverse application areas.
Enable a whole new way of thinking about the way we work, learn, and live together.
Promote development of a collective IQ among, within, and by networked improvement communities.
Cultivate a knowledge environment that includes a shared dynamic knowledge repository (DKR).
Foster development of an open-platform information system infrastructure based on an open hyperdocument systems (OHS) framework.
Share the A-B-C's of bootstrapping* and support co-evolution of human organizations and their tools.
Enable sharing of effort, cost and risks of advanced exploration among a diverse set of organizations and improvement communities.
Push the scaling of bootstrapping toward what could become national improvement infrastructures, as well as a global improvement infrastructure.
