Dyer discussed his research at the Utah Technology Council’s (UTC) (http://utahtechcouncil.org/) recent industry breakfast.

Christensen, professor of business administration at Harvard Business School, of the Harvard Business Review article “The Innovator’s DNA” published in December 2009. The article examines research that highlights how key innovators are able to develop great ideas and set themselves apart from the rest of the pack.
