“Leveraging the ACT model within our OFC Innovation and Entrepreneurship Program, we have been able to see firsthand how creativity is accelerated. When parts and components of a team are arranged with product development, it enables team cohesion and product development optimization. The ACT model has been a contributing factor in increasing the entrepreneurial mindset of our scholars and the number of prototypes produced by our students.”
