A Primer on Innovation

Dr.s Ray Price and Chuck House are two amazing people. Professor Price was appointed to the William H. Severns Chair of Human Behavior in the College of Engineering in the fall semester 1998. As the Severns Chair, his primary charter is to provide opportunities for engineering students to understand and develop skills in human behavior: interpersonal skills, leadership, teamwork, and management skills that will be useful to them in their careers.

Charles "Chuck" House is the executive director of Media X, Stanford University's membership research program on media and technology. He is also a senior research scholar at Stanford, continuing his work in technology-enabled communications, collaboration, and community. Previously, he was the director of Societal Impact of Technology, for Intel Corporation. He has been deeply involved with questions of technology's effect on society, and is currently focused on issues surrounding the attributes and impact of software technologies, particularly distance learning and collaboration using multimediated Web networking. He was instrumental in establishing the new Center for Information Technologies and Society at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and serves as Advisory Chair.

They have combined their experience together from their years in management at HP and have written a new book on the history of Hewlet Packard entitled the HP Phenomenon (Innovation and Transformation) To watch their interview Click Here
