Q&A: How to start education, training initiatives on innovation?

Question: We’re in the process of starting an educational / training initiative around innovation, and could use some guidance on where to start. Is there a typical starting point for these programs?

This question was handled by Maggie Pfeifer, Director of Education at Eureka! Ranch, which is a nearly 30-year-old firm that has developed a method for increasing innovation speed and decreasing risk. A partner of Innovation Leader, Eureka! developed a field of study known as “Innovation Engineering” with the University of Maine. Because of Eureka’s extensive experience educating executives at many of our members’ companies, we thought Maggie was uniquely positioned to answer this member question.

Innovation Leader is an information service and online community that serves new product development, strategy, corporate venture, and R&D executives in large organizations. For more information, or to subscribe, click here.
