Commitment versus Compliance part 2

I had identified a TRIZ contradiction on 2 parameters viz. quality and quantity of content base available in organizational knowledge bases. The next step after identifying the principles is the actual ideation. Principles that the contradiction matrix lists are in the same order of utility/importance. It took me exactly 40 minutes to come up with these ideas, it would useful for conducting this in a group setting and trying the same principle is the suggestion that came from my friend Prakash.

Here are the ideas… What do you think is absurd? Why do I ask this question, well

Albert Einstein says “If at first, the idea is not absurd, then there is no hope for it”.
