Your job, of course, is to solve THE PROBLEM*.
The next problem down is that there’s no way you can solve THE PROBLEM on your own.
Your job, then is akin to that of a producer: you need to find and assemble the resources (knowledge, people, money, things) who will build the solution.
If the knowledge and people don’t exist, you’re going to need to produce them too.
Talk to lots of people. Find out where the action is. Build a scene. Get Magnetic.
*Or if it’s a big problem, make a big dent.
