VP – Global Fortune 500 Financial Services Company

Operational Excellence Facilitator – Hospital Network

“Good Balance on Theory and Practice”  

Supply Chain Leader – Publicly Traded Pharma Company

“Going into this training, I had always felt like I had nothing to contribute to the creative process responsible for forming new ideas or products.  I had thought that this was fine, and what I lacked in creativity I made up for in my strong ability to execute and I should just follow what my strengths were.  What this training made me realize was that anyone can be creative and contribute valuable ideas but more importantly, it provided the skills necessary to develop ideas AND reinforced those skills through application assignments.  I think the last part of that sentence was the most important part for me, I find that myself, like most people, learn most effectively when skills are used and applied.  This process taught me that I could be creative and still execute and that I could directly influence others to do the same.”

Innovation Process Leader – Global Food Science Company

“A Great Hands on Experience and networking opportunity with other organizations!”

“This program is an asset to my growth and I look forward to continuing to use what I have learned!”

“One of my favorite things about the course and content is the ways it challenges you to think – but that in that it removes all barriers. You have to think about how you would bring this to market if there weren’t any limitations. That kind of thinking is freeing and helps you get excited about the opportunity. I feel like every time I have applied the training I have found myself thinking “this will really work – it is a good business idea.” 

Innovation Research Leader – Global Food Science Company

“I really enjoyed the smaller class size, learning the methods, then applying what we learned right away.”
