About the Course

Creative writers benefit from a creative writing course; creative chemists benefit from the Innovation Solution Protocol: a framework that (1) keeps you going when you hit the innovator's block, (2) holds you back when you go off the "deep end" into "never-never land", (3) realigns your focus on the most productive innovative pathway. This is done via the Innovation Solution Map where an innovation challenge projects into a derived challenge such that when the derived challenge is solved, the original challenge becomes more negotiable. Applying this process iteratively, charts the map, which can be traversed by its creator, and any team associated with the effort.

Key to the Innovation Acceleration Methodologies is the concept of establishing the credibility of cost-to-complete and time-to-finish of the innovation project. The rise in this credibility assessment represents innovation progress.  This progress metric is essential to developing optimal innovation management strategy.  No metrics – no optimization. Learn to measure your innovation progress, and manage the same.

Your creativity is the locomotive; this webcast lays the railway!  

What You Will Learn

  • How to Estimate cost-to-complete and time-to-finish of your innovation enterprise
  • How to determine the credibility of your estimate, and use the change of this credibility over time, as a management guide towards  greater innovative productivity
  • How to find an easier challenge relative to the one at hand, so that when the easier one is resolved, the original one becomes itself easier to resolve.
  • How to break down a challenge to a series of smaller challenges
  • How to break down a challenge to parallel (competing) challenges?
  • How to break down an innovative challenge to a series of simplified-to-refined challenges
  • How to find similar (already resolved) challenges to help the challenge at hand
  •  How to redefine your innovative challenge in a more abstract way, free from non essential details, in order to discern an otherwise hidden solution.
  • How to organize your team around your R&D objective

Who Should Attend

Research and Development chemists, Problem Solving Chemists, seeking to channel their creativity into higher innovation productivity.
