Albert Einstein, the world’s famous scientist and the owner of Nobel Prize on Physics who invented E=MC2 formula, gave a speech related to problem solving that: “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them”.
The above speech of Albert Einstein implies that “if we want to solve any problem, for example, complex problem, we must create new solution or innovation because the former solutions are unable to solve new problem or create new things.”
Similarly, the problem on insurgency in southern border provinces is unable to be solved by the former solutions but new solutions or innovations in various dimensions are required. Therefore, it can be said that “innovations are highly necessary for solving the problem on insurgency in southern border provinces.”
Let’s make understanding on official meaning of the word, “innovation”, Innovation means performing operations via new methods and changes on thinking, production, process, or organization. However, these changes must add value in the light of business. These changes or this innovation must add value for customers. However, in the light of social sciences, this change or innovation is required to generate or add value for people in such society.
The problem on insurgency in southern border provinces is considered as an important problem with complexity and connection in all dimensions. Therefore, to solve the problem on insurgency in southern border provinces, it is unavoidable to utilize innovations to solve problem in order to add value or create good things in the areas of southern border provinces
Over than these two decades, all sectors, including government sector, public sector, educational sector, and other sectors, have developed several innovations leading to changes in good direction compared to past occurrences.
Innovations may be in various formats including thoughts, products, processes, and other things that can generate value for the target group.
For example, for government sector, management system and management mechanism for solving problem on insurgency in southern border provinces is developed and organizational format is also adjusted for solving problem. Moreover, related laws are also amended, etc.
For public sector, many innovations are developed, for example, in community level, new concepts and methods are created to enable communities to obtain good things including local philosophers or village’s philosophers or village’s leaders.
For educational sector, new innovations are created and transferred to other sectors, for example, communities and business sector, in order to develop such innovations for improving quality of life and local economy.
Besides creating innovations of each agency, the exciting and challenging thing is creating new innovations via cooperation among sectors.
Why is it exciting and challenging? The reasons is when cooperation is occurred, rapidity of innovative development will be more rapid and be able to generate value or good things for public or the target group increasingly.
The concrete examples of cooperation in innovative development for generating value or good things for local people in southern border provinces are:
Every society always creates new innovations whereas these new innovations are created or developed for generating new value and things that will make life of people in society and communities to be better. Similarly, new innovations in various formats are also occurred in southern border provinces and these innovations are created and developed by each sector and cooperation among sectors as shown in the examples as mentioned above.
These things are considered as good things that are challenging and must be performed because innovation is the tool to upgrade society, especially in the areas of southern border provinces.
