“Where to begin! This class taught me such a wide variety of skills that I didn’t even know existed and I am very grateful. Within the culture of our company, it is very easy to settle into a routine and excel at that one thing. For the “world” I am in within our company, there is not much talk around innovation and a lot of my daily activities involve data and conference calls. It is great to now have a resource to go to when it feels like I might be stuck in a rut or if I need to bring something new to the table for my team to think about…In the end, I was a little sad for our last class to end. The course went VERY smoothly and I would highly recommend it to others.”
“This has been excellent experience and skills that will directly improve our team’s execution.”
“The Innovation Engineering process is one of the best methodologies that I have seen thus far. There are many methodologies out there, including Design Thinking, Lean Startup, etc. which originate from the same philosophy as Innovation Engineering – the one where creativity and innovation originate from customer centricity and solving real problems iteratively. However, the part that made Innovation Engineering stand out for me was the structured approach of tying innovation to business strategy.”
