    Default what relationship?

    Please make the following in red clear for me.

    We recognize creative strategy: a key precedent from another source solves a key element of your problem. Innovation is a social sport, so you should organize your company to help everyone find teammates of various kinds.

    I'm confused about the logical relationship between the two sentences divided by colon(:). Is it saying "when we see a key precedent from another source solve a key element of your problem, we can recognize it is creative strategy"?

    Thank you.

    Default Re: what relationship?

    For me, it's a poorly written sentence- the link between the two halves is not that clear.
