In our area, between Dec and Feb is a good period for planting trees, and I have been busy in preparing the planting activities. But when I compare making a mobile phone to planting trees, it seems to me that planting trees need more de Bono's thinking.
The following are some of the reasons:
(1) Each tree is different (Difference between two mobile phones of the same model is insignificant, except the defect units)
(2) Soils and local soil microbes are different (Materials and components for making two mobile phones of the same model are basically the same)
(3) Weather changes (Processing and assembly conditions for two mobile phones of the same model are basically the same)
(4) Covering a large area and difficult to monitor (Plantation area is orders of magnitude larger than a factory)
The staff in planting trees needs more thinking if we want to have forests of better quality (i.e. more wood per area, more CO2 sequestration, less easy to catch fire) when the staff are dealing with all these variations.
Any experience in using de Bono tools for mid-aged farmers?
[Any comments are welcome. I believe this blog will help me to think and find a better approach.]
