Collaboration from someone who knows nothing about your situation

At the Idea Sandbox, a recent post asked a question that was very simple. However, our answer to that question may not always be.

Have a fresh problem that needs to be cracked?

Idea Sandbox’s answer is very simple. Bring in someone else who knows nothing about the company. Why? I think that this is a genius idea. Often when someone deals with only one situation, they get stuck in a box. A routine is set up, and the follow a straight line. So when a problem arises, they only see a few answers that fit in their box. So why not bring in someone who knows nothing about your problem? Collaboration is often the strongest component of innovation and fresh ideas.

What do you think?
