Problem Solving Framework

Alignment for Speed
Multiple research studies cite lack of alignment as the biggest reason for the lack of speed in innovation within teams.  This means lack of a clear strategy and also lack of a clear approach to innovation projects.

In this course you'll learn a simple system for creating and framing a strategy so everyone gets it and works in unison to accomplish it.

A critical element to innovation success is leveraging diversity and all the different thinking styles that come with it.  You'll learn how to quickly identify the thinking styles of each team member and leverage it.
35,000 Support Network
As an Innovation Engineering course participant you join a community of 35,000 others that have been educated in Innovation Engineering systems.  They have a similar innovation mindset.  They speak your language.  And they are there as resources for you to connect with and problem solve.  In fact, many people in the community find new partners, business relationships, and positions as part of the network.
Graduate Level Education & Certification
Innovation Engineering Blue Belt Certification is an asset to your portfolio of skills.  In completing this professional certification you'll be doing the equivalent of 1 semester of Graduate level coursework at super-sonic speed.  (But don't stress that you can't take on more! The certification work is done by attacking your existing work...just in a different way.)

In this course and certification you learn how all these functions and roles can come together to collaborate and get an accelerated experience that helps you develop into a stronger, more holistic leader. 

Doing Work that Matters
Over and over, Innovation Engineering Blue Belts tout their increased confidence and renewal in a pride of work.  They say:
  •  "Innovation is now a way of thinking, not simply a "project."
  • "I embrace failure - because it means I'm pushing the envelop and really learning."
  • "I have confidence that I can find a way or make a way to make things not just better, but incredible."
  •  "Doing something different gets me excited, when it used to make me tired and anxious."

Not us.  

For 60 days following the course you get an Innovation Engineering Black Belt coach that gives you feedback and guidance as you translate your new skills into your regular job.
Do I have to be an engineer or in innovation to take the course?
NO!  You can be anything (coach, nurse, marketing manager, astronaut) and take the course.  The reason it's called 'Innovation Engineering' is because it's both teaching you how to stretch your creative side to innovate but also stretch your 'how can we make this actually work so we can do it' side at the same time.
Are there pre-requisites?
NO!  You need no special training to come to the course.  It's built to make you successful with ZERO experience.
Does it apply to my industry/profession?
Absolutely.  If in your job you need to solve problems and do it faster, smarter and more innovatively - then it 100% applies.
Where are the live classes held?
Most of the live classes are held at the Eureka! Ranch in Cincinnati, Ohio.  It's a custom built facility that sits on the edge of a lake and has been dubbed a "safe haven for innovative thinking."
Where do I stay?
There are many great hotels nearby - from downtown posh to cozy creative spaces.  Upon registering you'll get a complete packet with logistics, details and recommendations for your trip.
How soon can I get into a class?
There's at least one class per month.
What will I get from the course?
You'll learn how to create and communicate meaningfully unique ideas to solve problems.  You'll also learn how to test your idea to see if it's any good and how to make it a reality really fast.
How does the certification work?
If you pass all the certification assignments within 60 days of attending the live class, you'll be certified as an Innovation Engineering Blue Belt by the Innovation Engineering Institute.  You can put it on your resume, LinkedIn and mention it in your next review with your boss!
Can I get C.E.U.s for the course?
Absolutely.  Our academic partner, the University of Maine, can issue continuing education units for you.
Is it an online class or in-person?
Both.  Once you register you get online access to the library of video courses to watch before attending the live 2-day class.  After that you have 60 days to submit assignments and work virtually with your coach.
How long is the class?
The live class portion is 2 days, 8a-5p ET.
I'm busy.  How am I supposed to find time for this in addition to my regular work?!?
That's the best part!  When you apply your new innovative skills during your certification it is apply to your EXISTING to-do list.  Meaning the course WON'T ADD to your work, it will actually help you get it done!
