Innovation Engineering Workshop

Saturday, November 15, 9 am-12 pm (location TBA)


What does sustainability mean to your organization? Staying in business for the long run? Using resources in an environmentally responsible way? Energy efficiency? Diversity and inclusion as a workforce strategy?

During this workshop, we will use Innovation Engineering (TM) tools to help you think about sustainability for your situation. This will be a highly interactive session. You will get to think about your own goals, but also help others clarify theirs. You will leverage the diversity of the other participants to come up with ideas to tackle your opportunities and challenges, and learn ways to systematically make progress towards these goals. Expect to re-connect with your creative side and have fun as well.

Innovation Engineering is a system for creating a system of innovation in your organization by everyone, everywhere, every day that results in increased speed and decreased risk. It is based in the principles of Deming, and includes education in what, why, and how to innovate, creates alignment of strategy and operations, enables the courage to fail and continually learn, builds capacity through collaboration, and most importantly, creates value and profit! This workshop is being led by Catherine Renault, a Certified Innovation Engineering Black Belt, and owner of Innovation Policyworks, located in Brunswick, ME.
