How we Ignite Innovation
For 30+ years we've helped leading corporations develop innovations for new products, services, systems, brands, and businesses. We've created and tested 25,000+ innovations, 100,000+ individuals & invested over $25 Million to create ways to be better, faster, and smarter at innovation.
The result is a systems-driven approach to innovation called Innovation Engineering. It's a new field of academic study and leadership science that can ignite innovation within your people, projects, and culture. This new approach is taught in all our courses, built into our tools, and used during all of our projects.
training & certification
All of our public Innovation Engineering courses are taught using our patent pending Cycles to Mastery teaching methodology (digital/lab/application/experience/reflection), which guarantees that everyone who is willing can master the curriculum.
Accelerate an existing or new innovation project up to 6x faster and 10x more successfully. Most projects result in patentable BIG ideas with complete, vetted business plans within 100 days.
The cloud-based software features artificial intelligence enabled tools that make Courses and Projects go faster. It puts critical innovation tools like rapid customer research, on-demand tutorials, fast patent searches, and an entire innovation project management suite at your fingertips.
Need a technology breakthrough? Our professional inventors take an innovation from inspiration, through development, and into test market. Typical efforts involve original R&D, multiple patents, and super-sonic iterations of technical and market testing to invent entirely new brands, products, businesses, and technologies.
In 9 months (performing 234 rounds of testing and filing 9 provisional patents along the way) Relativity Smooth Drinking Whiskey beat the category leader 2 to 1.
This revolution is disrupting the industry as it only takes 40 minutes to mature...compared to 18 years for the market leader.

GROUNDED IN DATA.
Our systems-driven method for innovation, Innovation Engineering, is the first innovation system that is based on quantitative data, not gurus with interesting theories. It includes data on 25,000+ innovations, 100,000+ individuals & 30 years of original R&D.
BEEN THERE. DONE THAT.
When it comes to innovation we've “been there, done that hundreds of times." Across 30+ years we've worked with Fortune 100 companies, small companies, non-profits, governments, and universities. Check out a sampling of our client list to see for yourself.
REAL & DOCUMENTED.
In matched tests, a Procter & Gamble Finance department audit found that to go from idea to market the Innovation Engineering managed project required just 10% of the staff, 18% of the budget, and 16% of the time of a project using the classic methods.
