Those who were at the ICS conference this year will remember Dave Male talking about Effectuation, an idea with a sense of purpose.  He connected this concept with Fresh Expressions and made what I though was a strong case that great church planters and Fresh Expression leaders were not uniquely gifted, just able to see what means are to hand and how to use them to the goal, in this case creating a Fresh Expression. 

As I sat there I thought this was a concept worth further instigation.  You can find out more here.
