You are warmly welcomed to join us for our Innovation Engineering Clinic with Graeme Crombie of Matrix – Business Growth on Wednesday 28th February at St Johnstone F.C. McDiarmid Park, Crieff Road, Perth, PH1 2SJ from 9:30am for registration and starting at 10am, finishing by 12:30pm.
Every company, every executive recognises the critical need to innovate on new products, new services offerings, new and improved ways of doing business. Without a continuous, predictable flow of innovations companies are disappearing.
But how do you create a culture of innovation? How do you improve your innovation system? Very few executives know how. Empowering your people is not enough. They must be enabled, educated, mentored, and given the tools to succeed. Real success with innovation requires a focused leadership effort and an organisation development route map – building a company that reliably delivers ongoing innovation success.
This CeeD event will introduce participants to one approach to this challenge – Innovation Engineering. Innovation Engineering is innovation reimagined through the application of system thinking to strategy, innovation, and how people work together to bring new ideas to successful fruition.
Innovation Engineering is a new field of academic study and leadership science developed by Eureka! Ranch, based in Cincinnati, Ohio, along with thought-leading companies and universities. It teaches advanced methods and tools for creating big ideas, accelerating innovation projects, and problem solving to overcome innovation challenges.
Companies using Innovation Engineering report an 85% reduction in risk of failure with new innovation projects and a 6-fold increase in the speed of full commercial deployment.
But it’s bigger than that! It’s a new mindset – where negativity is replaced with optimism and excitement at the possibilities that a true systems-based approach to innovation can bring.
The Innovation Engineering system is delivered in Europe by Matrix – an innovation and leadership consultancy based in Glasgow. The Matrix team of Innovation Engineering Black Belt practitioners teach leaders, managers and front-line operators how to innovate everywhere, every day – no matter their job title, experience, or education. Innovation Engineering provides them with a discipline and structure for innovation making the creation and successful introduction of new ideas a reliable and reproducible experience.
