Everyone talks about innovation as the key to company (and career) success in this rapidly changing world. Few have had an opportunity to learn a front-to-back system to innovate – until now.

Learn how to accelerate innovation in your work immediately – regardless of your skill, title, or work experience. With practical, hands-on lessons and real-world application, this is how you can make innovation happen. Rated 4.8 stars out of 5 participants, this is unlike any business training you’ve ever experienced.

Do you want to innovate, but are not sure how to start?
Are your innovation efforts slow or have a low success rate?

Following this two-day session, you will have access to a personal innovation coach for sixty days.

Upon the successful completion of the course work, you will receive your Innovation Engineering Blue Belt, an internationally-recognized innovation certification.

At the Innovation Engineering Quick Start, you will learn the skills, tools, and systems of innovation, including:

  • How to create ideas and problem solve (with methods eight times more effective than brainstorming);
  • How to use proven tools and techniques to grow your innovation skill set;
  • How to develop, communicate, test and validate ideas to show return on investment;
  • How to take an idea from inspiration to launch – fast.
