Overview The problem: Moonshots are regularly announced but to work, they need more strategic input. Why it matters: Unplanned moonshots can quickly lose momentum, leading to a loss of credibility, dilution of purpose, poor impact in the public value space or loss of trust. The solution: Understanding the context, the purpose and outlining the long-term strategy (resources like talent, finance, partnerships) will help achieve moonshots.
