The Ultimate Goal
“If invention is a pebble tossed in the pond, innovation is the rippling effect that pebble causes. Someone has to toss the pebble. That’s the inventor. Someone has to recognize the ripple will eventually become a wave. That’s the entrepreneur.” — Tom Grasty, PBS Idea Lab
Cultivating the skills to be a dynamic, disciplined team that engages in engineering and enterprise processes is the goal of all Ten80 programs. The ULTIMATE ultimate goal is to help students understand that innovation is a process and to help every individual find his or her place as a contributor to and leader in that process. It is to help every individual become an innovative thinker because innovation is possible at every level of an organization and in every stage of a project or operation.
Success does not just happen. It requires the right mindset, one that combines creativity with focus and determination. Beginning with a short unit on Evidence-Based Enterprise, this curriculum can help you develop innovative solutions from scratch to issues you want to address in your own community. Alternatively, each unit can be applied on its own to your existing projects.
