Terry Jones, founder and former CEO of Travelocity and chairman of Kayak.com, spoke on innovation in President Gillette’s class on Tuesday evening.
Jones discussed how innovation stands on the twin pillars of culture and team. Students quizzed him on creating a culture of innovation. He advocated remembering to “kill projects not people” and to keep teams small and nimble: Amazon’s Two-Pizza Rule. He exhorted students to fail fast and move on.
Jones has recently published a book entitled ON Innovation. His website is here http://tbjones.com/.
