Assgmnt 1 Commonality

  1. 1. CH u M sWe have decided to look at the key commonality that we share among us; who are separated by oceans,continents, countries and time zones. As a group we decided to present the most important component for this course which is our common desire to be Creative. In order to showcase this, we wouldlike to share to everyone (if you are interested to read the details) our individual experiences on how aburst of creativity change our lives using the very model that was presented to us by our professor, Tina Seelig. In doing so, we shared to you a part of our experience, it is for you to find out what our commonalities are based on those experiences and we as a group can also validate whether we understood the first important lecture of this subject. Happy reading and welcome to our group! Rolando Agdale Narrin Jonas Heather Garrity Pamela Pratley Kulsum Shahiwala

  4. 4. Resources A friend is working for a company who does the services but does not have the technical capability to do product development; we used him to specify product technical specifications. Another former colleague is in the design work; we used his services to do the initial simulations to specify tolerance limits. And the list of resources that we tapped is too long to mention in this list. Attitude We decided to study our approach to the problem, identified a specific project which is very problematic on this product using our internal sources in the industry we isolated one company who would be receptive to our offer. After several visits, we got the project. We made sure that that company would not encounter any problem from our installation crew. We made sure that all they have to do is inspect and approve our work with the agreement of their project managers.

I have authored a book on entrepreneurship to document all these experiences together with the inputs from Stanford Technology Ventures. Rolando Alagde
  5. 5. Creativity Experience I have played guitar my entire life. I have reached a point where learning songs that are popular bore me so mostly whenever I play I just create original pieces. I try to give songs emotions and moods. Personal experiences have driven to write songs in the past. On June 2012 I was part of a team (called Mobilitti) that won an idea competition put forward by the government. We were awarded a grant to develop our idea of a traffic solution. This came from the horrible traffic problem in our country. Hopefully it will be a profitable company one day. Resources I use what I can where I can. My country is not the best place to start up a company and receive funding but it is a great place to start an idea to solve traffic as no one as attempted such a solution before. As a kid growing up I was exposed to a guitar from a very early age so thats what I learnt. Attitude Knowledge In my country people tend to settle for mediocrity. I I learnt to play guitar on my own. Grew up on 80s music and believe that we all are average but what makes us incorporated that style into my playing. different is our will to try. I have taken my degree in physics and electronics and I am now I have taken this idea and put it into aspects of my using that knowledge to implement a solar system being put up by life. I ask why not instead of why when I am the company I work for. approached with a task. I am using this as well in learning to build an electronic in- vehicle device to support my teams traffic solution. Imagination In playing guitar inspiration comes from trying to create different moods. In the past I have tried to imagine feelings and portray them through the music, whether melancholy or not. In terms of my traffic solution we decided we would give people a solution by treating traffic like a fluid that we can control. That way we can tell the cars where to go and when. In a sense we are trying to orchestrate traffic. Habitat Culture I have always been in the University environment where brilliant This country I live in promotes tourism and carnival quite soundly and I lecturers and smart students are there to help you with problems. think the culture of our people is built around that. The classroom environment is not the best place for ideas but the The environment is slowly changing as the government is pushing research. company I work with pushes their employees to innovation and To make a difference we have to try to influence an attitude of change oncreativity. Fortunately I have been able to take this up in designing a others. Our traffic solution strives to do just that. solar system.I try to use what I have learnt to better my environment. Solar energy would help sustainable development in my country. A traffic solution would increase the efficiency of the economy. Narrin Jonas
