Questions for discussion:

  1. Think about the problem of world-wide poverty and housing for the poor. Why is creativity needed to solve this problem?
  2. The idea advanced by Professor Govindarajan is clearly social innovation. Should business be involved? Why or why not?
  3. Review the stages listed on the $300 House web page. Is this a good approach? How do these stages compare to the innovation process in your text?
