Rollins Center for Entrepreneurship & Technology

A few weeks ago I attended a symposium at BYU put on by the Rollins Center for Entrepreneurship & Technology.  Jeff Dyer, author of “The Innovator’s DNA” (co-authors are Hal Gregerson and Clayton Christensen), gave a great presentation about how to develop the skill of Innovation.  He focused on the sub-skills of Association, Observation, Questioning, Experimenting, and Networking.  We then practiced those skills through an activity led by the Innovation Academy.  Great fun!  Our group designed the iDivide.  This creates a physical barrier between fighting or squabbling kids in a car (it includes a touch panel with games and learning materials).  My favorite part was the one-way mirror idea that I came up with so that crying kids could watch themselves!
