This is a great opportunity to gain the basics of Innovation Engineering at a greatly reduced price, thanks to MTI and E2Tech. Normally, this workshop would cost a company around $5000 to host at their site. So, at $99.00, this is a great value!
Registration is required, space is limited!
This workshop is a fast and fun way to sample the basics on how to Create, Communicate, & Commercialize Meaningfully Unique Ideas, using the Innovation Engineering system. In this format, we will cover the three basic topics in Innovation Engineering:
- CREATE: You learn the new mindset that creates a 6x increase in the number of high quality ideas versus classic “brainstorming.” It features a special focus on how to maximize learning from customer insights, marketplace benchmarking, technology and future mining, and how to leverage the diverse thinking of a group to create Meaningfully Unique ideas.
- COMMUNICATE: You will transform how you look at innovation projects. This section provides a simple way for defining ideas so that everyone - from a front line worker to the CEO - can speak the same language.
- COMMERCIALIZE: You will get basic training in how to reduce innovation risk. Instead of attempting to study away risk, you will learn the new Fail FAST Fail CHEAP approach. It’s a modern and accelerated version of the classic Deming learning cycle of “Plan, Do, Study, Act” applied to innovation.
Dr. Catherine Renault, a Certified Innovation Engineering Black Belt, will teach this Innovation Engineering Workshop using the Cycles to MasteryTM teaching system. It’s a system of learning developed at the University of Maine that has been found to be 4 times more effective than classic training programs. Quantitatively, the Workshop covers about 20% of the skills that are taught in the full Innovation Engineering Black Belt program.
