This decision saves her 25% of what a professional designer will charge her for the same job. Empirical Creativity The innovation of having various entertainment activities in the same place can be considered as empirical creativity that means "relying upon direct observation, conducting practical experiments, and/or engaging directly with evidence rather than relying upon opinion." (Collins & Hansen, 2011, p.25). Planning all the events and analyzing how many customers will coming and how much each person will spend are evidence of the empirical creativity of Givens. Also, Givens has empirical creativity by trying new things. Level 5 Ambition I believe that the Level 5 Ambition (Collins & Hansen, 2011, p.30) could be applied to Givens the creator of Sugar Bowl because she was so intense in her planning and controlling all the cost.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
