Have you fallen prey to the forgetting curve? To what extent have you let slip the knowledge gained from your Innovation Engineering training?

Frequently, certified Innovation Engineering practitioners have shared that their daily use of skills feels effortless. However, when revisiting training for a skill “refresh,” they often rediscover tools and abilities that were once forgotten but prove beneficial for their continued progress. Research emphasizes the significance of repetition and reeducation in retaining information and keeping our skills sharp. As a result, we are extending an invitation to the March 2024 in-person mastery course to individuals who have previously participated in Mastery, attended Innovation College, or hold certification as an Innovation Engineering Black Belt.

  • Video Cycles in advance of class introduce the 48 skills covered during this class. These videos are not required but will help give you a refresher on the content. Each one lasts on average about 7 minutes and let’s not forget those no-stress quizzes.
  • Lab Cycles you will attend 3 in-class days where you will practice your Innovation Engineering skills to bring what you know to life. You will complete and submit your work and receive grading and coaching on each assignment during your time in class.

It was the single most important learning opportunity in my professional career.
Over the years we have had many great ideas, with little results. Innovation Engineering gave us real tools and the courage to bring new ideas to fruition in a very practical manner.
