Questions for discussion:
- Think about the problem of world-wide poverty and housing for the poor. Why is creativity needed to solve this problem?
- The idea advanced by Professor Govindarajan is clearly social innovation. Should business be involved? Why or why not?
- 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?
