Innovation Engineering Program Description

What: The Innovation Engineering Program is a 1.5 day training where you and your team learn the fundamentals of how to lead and manage innovation as a “system” that delivers increased speed and decreased risk. The program is appropriate for anyone new to Innovation Engineering and to those who have started the process and are looking to expand understanding.

Why: It is well understood that companies that innovate realize 200 to 300% increases in profit growth when they transform to a proactive innovation culture versus a reactive price driven orientation. However, research indicates that executives feel that innovation can take a long time and can be very risky. The Innovation Engineering field of study and practice transforms innovation from a random art to a reliable business system that delivers increased speed (up to 6x) and decreased risk (30 to 80%). The complete IE curriculum as taught to Innovation Engineering Black Belts on campus and off requires a investment of time and energy to cover the four college courses of content. This program provides a summary appropriate for executives.

How: You learn through Focused Lectures and Lab classes during day one. During day two you Apply the learning to your situation. With the help of Innovation Engineering Black Belts you experience translating your growth strategy into Blue Cardâ„¢ action plans.

About the Innovation Engineering System and Doug Hall

Doug HallInnovation Engineering, as a movement, is only a few years old. However, the learning behind it and the experiments that are its foundation have been developed over the past 30 years. The original idea for Innovation Engineering was sparked in Doug Hall, a Chemical Engineer by education, when he first learned about Dr. Deming’s work at Nashua Corporation in the early 1980s. Dr. W. Edwards Deming was the American Statistician credited with helping rebuild Japan after World War II. The founder of Toyota said, “Dr. Deming is the core of our management.”

Doug applied the system approach of Deming to innovation at Procter & Gamble where he and his team set a record creating and shipping into live market tests nine innovations in twelve months. After ten years, Doug retired from P&G and founded the Eureka! Ranch. The Ranch’s primary business has always focused on helping thought leading multi-national companies such as Nike, Walt Disney, Pepsi, Hewlett Packard, and American Express increase innovation speed and decrease risk.
