Bring back Skunkworks.
Technology and automating workforces have made things faster and more efficient, but have they made it better? Have we become so focused on building the biggest warehouses, both physical and digital, that we've forgotten how to innovate? In 1959 (58 years ago) the team of just 40 engineers dubbed the Skunkworks division of Lockheed Corporation (a then 28,000 person company) began development the of the A-12 - the Mach 3, 2,200mph strategic renaissance aircraft that became the SR-71 Blackbird - which tooks it's first flight just 3 years later in 1962. Do we need to re-invigorate this decades old structure to drive innovation in our companies of today? I think yes.
