Program Innovation is an experience designed to facilitate groups, classes and organizations through the idea development process by systematically tackling a challenge relevant to them. Program Innovation (for Students) is focused on the challenges relevant to students and the ways they can innovate.
Below, you will find some examples of the step-by-step process, as well as a selection of the innovation skills you will learn and develop. At the bottom of the page, you will find contact information, as well as an opportunity to sign up for a free workshop from the program to begin Program Innovation today!
Why this innovation program?
- Experience – We’ve been developing leadership programs for 10+ years, helping groups learn and practice innovation. Program Innovation is developed by Darin Eich, author of “Root Down & Branch Out: Best Practices For Leadership Development Programs”.
- Action – Take action to produce tangible leadership results by taking on an actual innovation challenge within your group. Systematically develop ideas you need.
- Flexibility – Program Innovation is custom-tailored to suit your needs. Since it is an online video program, students can participate when and where you want. We can even build live events and coaching into the program.
- Proven Success – Students will learn the same advanced innovation processes we’ve taught and facilitated at Dartmouth, UW-Madison, and successful Fortune 500 organizations.
- Value – Students will learn to generate and develop new ideas as a necessary life skill.
