How Breakthroughs Happen:
The Surprising Truth About How Companies Innovate
Harvard Business Review Press, 2003
Did you know that the incandescent lightbulb first emerged some thirty years before Thomas Edison famously ‘turned night into day’? Or that Henry Ford’s revolutionary assembly line came from an unlikely blend of observations from Singer sewing machines, meatpacking, and Campbell’s Soup?
In this fascinating study of innovation, engineer and social scientist Andrew Hargadon argues that our romantic notions about innovation as invention are actually undermining our ability to pursue breakthrough innovations.
Each year, the Graduate School of Management engages in four campaigns to increase three of the School’s endowment funds. These are student-driven campaigns organized by graduating students in our three MBA programs located in Davis, the Bay Area and Sacramento, as well as our Master of Professional Accountancy program (MPAc).
Our faculty host conferences throughout the year pertaining to their specialized areas. Faculty invite colleagues nationally and internationally to attend these conferences who present about their current research in each area.
Spring break at UC Davis is upon us, and for some it’s a time for spray-on tans or traveling south for an MTV beach party. For 20 MBA students from the Graduate School of Management, it will be a rare opportunity to meet one of the most sage business minds today: Mr. Warren Buffett.
The Oracle of Omaha has graciously invited a group of UC Davis MBA students back again this year to join other MBA students for a visit in his hometown. The itinerary includes tours of Berkshire Hathaway’s Nebraska Furniture Outlet and Borsheims Fine Jewelry, Q&A with the Oracle himself, a steak lunch with Mr. Buffett, and dinner with our Assistant Dean James Stevens. Deep-pocketed investors have bid as much as $2.63 million for a chance to dine with Warren Buffett, so we’re very grateful for such an amazing opportunity.
Co-chaired by Professor Bechky and Professor Elsbach, this year’s conferences features guests from around the world to discuss key topics on qualitative research.
