The MBP represents a clear and unifying challenge to focus the ingenuity and skills of many different individuals and organizations, whether they are directly participating in (and funded by) the MBP, or represent key partners using the MBP to leverage their efforts. The MBP requires an effective organizational structure that ensures cohesion among the various elements but delegates responsibility to maximize operational efficiency.
