Term Project (Policy on Term Project Assignments)

Our goal today is to form teams for the term project (OAP) and case study groups. Teams should consist of five students. These teams will then remain the same for the remainder of the quarter. As such, remember that the "best" teams (i.e.: the most creative, the most effective, and the most fun) have diverse members -- different majors, genders, or work experiences. Do not just pick your current friends. You will learn more from working with people who are not exactly like you and/or who don't agree with everything you say. We will devote as much time as possible in previous session and this session to let you meet other students to form teams. Let's  also leverage Slack to help you find other team members. The deadline for forming a full team is at the end of today.

Study Questions (Policy on Study Questions.)

  • Read the term projects description completely. Be prepared to ask any questions you have about the Opportunity Analysis Project.
  • From the readings from last week and for today, what has surprised you the most so far regarding entrepreneurship and innovation as a set of processes or types of attitudes which can be taught and learned?
