INNOVATION ENGINEERING INSTITUTE
IS AN INNOVATION TRAINING COURSE
THAT MAKES INNOVATION
POSSIBLE, PRACTICAL AND EASY
by giving you the essential know how,
tools and step-by-step instruction manual for innovation.
Innovation Leadership Skills for Today's Fast Paced World.
Here's What You Get :
- Multiple In Depth Days of Learning on 12 Innovation Skills from the Innovation Engineering Curiculum
- 60 Days Access to Innovation Engineering Labs Innovation Technology Suite of Tools
- 60 Days of Support and Coaching from an Innovation Engineering Certified Expert Instructor from The Innovation Garage®
- Opportunity to Earn an Innovation Engineering Certification upon completion of the program.
Here's How It Works:
STEP 1: DIGITAL IMMERSION INTO THE 12 INNOVATION FUNDAMENTAL SKILLS
Your course begins with a virtual orientation where you meet your instructor and learn how the Cycles to Mastery teaching method enables us to GUARANTEE that you will learn how to innovate. Over two weeks you watch about 30 five to seven minute digital classes that teach you the theory, principles, and methods that make up the 12 fundamental Innovation Engineering skills. You participate in online discussions to make the digital classes real and to reduce your stress factor. The time commitment is about 4-5 hours total.
STEP 2: TWO DAY LIVE EXPERIENCE DEEPENS UNDERSTANDING
You will gather with other students for a two-day, hands on experience. You'll get one-on-one feedback, coaching, and support learning the new mindset, methods, and tools, and you'll make the learning REAL. Everything you've learned is put together into a step by step accelerated Innovation Engineering Project. You create, communicate, and go through accelerated learning cycles with your fellow classmates. The experience and the step by step manual provided make it easy for you to lead an Innovation Engineering project with your team, department, or organization when you return to work.
Typical brainstorming results in a small number of usually obvious ideas. In this hands on class you will learn a better way. You will learn the theory and principles that research finds generate 8X more high quality ideas. It's a system that enables you to innovate on new or improved products/services. Just as importantly it enables you to innovate on smarter ways of doing your work and to problem solve.
Research finds that many ideas die because they are poorly communicated inside and outside the organization. In this class you learn a step by step method for communicating your idea with a 5X increase in persuasive power. Just as importantly you also learn a painless way to VALUE your innovation by calculating risk adjusted 5 year sales forecasts for how big your idea will be.
This class teaches you a smarter way of managing projects. It's an updated and practical version of Dr. Deming’s Plan, Do, Study, Act cycles of learning. It is the first innovation system that teams enjoy using. As opposed to most innovation systems that are designed to control work. The IE approach enables innovation through clarity, discipline, focus and the satisfaction that comes from team accomplishments.
Innovation Engineering Demonstration Project
To make sure you can implement the new learning when you return to work, you will complete an accelerated, hand-on Innovation Engineering experience using the Innovation Engineering Labs tool set. You will learn a system for: 1) setting your innovation objective, 2) stimulus mining, 3) leading an ideation session, 4) researching the ideas, and 5) Plan, Do, Study, Act problem solving.
The Innovation Engineering experience is 100% documented. This makes it easy for you to replicate and lead a project when you get back to work - whether you are creating ideas for strategies, new products/services, or internal systems or if you are problem solving or re-creating existing projects or products.
STEP 3: WORKPLACE APPLICATIONS MAKE THE LEARNING REAL
Innovation Engineering Blue Belt Certification is granted to students who complete: 1) digital classes, 2) 2 day experience, 3) confidence building homework (to a minimum grade of “A” or 90% completion) and 4) hands-on practice within 60 days after the course ends. You are then eligible, if you desire, to continue your education at the Innovation Engineering Master Class to become an Innovation Engineering Black Belt.
Innovation Engineering Institute is the executive education version of the course taught on university and college campuses. It’s been adapted to be conveniently completed, as time permits, over 60 days. It covers the 12 fundamental Innovation Engineering skills for Creating, Communicating and Commercializing Innovations.
