The IRI Virtual i101 course is designed to provide an introduction to topics of managing corporate innovation. In it, the participants will learn both the essential tools for managing innovation and how to deal with organizational issues. We will be holding a two-part course on September 23 and 30th. Click here to view and register for Part 2 - Organizational Issues in Managing Innovation.
 
Part 1 of the course will cover traditional topics, such as the Stage-Gate methodology and Voice of the Customer as well as more contemporary topics such as design, risk management, open innovation, and lean startup. Note, that while the two parts of this course have some themes in common, neither is required for the other, and they can be taken independently.
 
Virtual i101 Part 1: Essential Tools in Managing Innovation will cover:
  • Defining innovation
  • Design methods and Customer Insight
  • Idea Generation and Open Innovation
  • Risk Management
  • Stage-Gate and Agile systems
  • Lean Startup
Each session will include break-outs to work with the tools and techniques and build connections with the other participants.
 
This course is designed for both researchers who have recently assumed a team leadership role and for individual contributors who seek to lead an innovation team in the future. It is designed for those who want to broaden their knowledge of innovation management and to learn more about the practical aspects of key innovation topics and tools. It is also appropriate for an innovation team member who wants to develop a broader understanding of innovation practices. This course can be viewed as a springboard to the participant’s professional advancement.
