Part 3 – Link the book to the course – what does it tell us specifically about creativity, innovation and product development? (Pages 3-6)
In this section you will identify a minimum of six (6) unique course concepts that connect the book to the
course—specific ideas, principles, methods and issues related to creativity/innovation/product development that
we have discussed in class or that were covered in Peter Sims’ “Little Bets” Book.
Tell us how the book specifically illustrates, illuminates or supports each topic.
One by one, identify and describe what you believe are key concepts that were covered in class that you find in the book and give specific evidence from the narrative that illustrates and supports each one.
Evidence can be anything in the book’s narrative that, in your judgment, is relevant such as critical events, work methods of the individuals involved, personal characteristics and traits of the individuals, the impact of social and environmental factors during the time period covered, accidental events, problems faced, good or bad luck, failures, and so on…anything that supports and explains the individual concept you have identified.
Present the key concepts one by one. For each concept: (a) list the general idea, principle, method or issue you have identified, (b) summarize the specific evidence you found for it in the text (a few short quotes are good to include when helpful), and (c) give the specific page reference(s) for your evidence.
The bulk of the grading will be based on this section. Quantity and quality will both count.
