How do you recruit support to help find solutions to wicked problems?

Remembering the definition of a "wicked problem" (technical term, see: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wicked_problems - roughly speaking a "wicked problem" is one that has no definitive formulation, in other words you don't know precisely what the problem is until after it has been solved.)... how can you or I recruit people to work on wicked problems?

How do we go about recruiting people to work on problems with no definitive formulation?

“Some problems are so complex that you have to be highly intelligent and well informed just to be undecided about them.”
--Laurence J. Peter

Besides being intelligent and well informed, it probably helps to have a high tolerance for ambiguity, and a good sense of humor!! :-)
