Change Your Innovator's DNA Expression

In their book, The Innovator's DNA, the authors identified 5 parts to the secret sauce of innovative business success: In thinking about how these skills work together, they found it useful to apply the metaphor of DNA. Associating is like the backbone structure of DNA’s double helix; four patterns of action (questioning, observing, experimenting, and networking) wind around this backbone, helping to cultivate new insights.
