Last week, Ed Roberts brought in yet another great speaker in Ray Stata, the founder and currently Chairman of Analog Devices. Mr. Stata gave an inspiring talk about his willingness to take risks and stand by his vision for the product and how he saw the market evolving.

Here were his 7 points about creating an innovative organization that were quite eloquently stated:

-Create a pioneering spirit
-Create market leadership through innovation
-Create an environment that encourages innovation
-Make engineers full business partners
-Demonstrate that innovation matters
-Risk is inherent in technology strategy
-Programs fail, not people.
