Tinker Toy Activity


I couldn’t find Tinker Toys, so we used K’Nex. It is the roller coaster one, but no one asked for directions or guidance so I didn’t tell them anything.

Innovation Management Class

I am teaching an MBA course on innovation management. It is actually a cross between competitive strategy, innovation management, and strategic management. It is all coming together fairly nicely. I am a little concerned about how it will actually work. Here is the in class plan so far… There is a textbook they are reading as background (but I don’t think I like the book). I have supplemented the NASA book, as well.¬† The infographic is clickable and links work for the first 2/3 of the in class activities and such.
