What is Innovation Engineering?

Innovation Engineering is a framework for innovation. It offers practical guidance for creating anything new – whether in large firms, research labs, new ventures, or even innovative student projects.

Why is Innovation Engineering needed?

Because smart teams with talented people and good plans often fail. Lots of activity does not always result in progress or insight. Slide presentations do not result in real life execution. Teams who use Innovation Engineering in their projects get higher quality results, they have 2 to 4 times more productivity, and they even feel happier about their projects.

How is it different from other approaches?

Innovation Engineering brings inductive learning into the innovation process of any project. Inductive learning allows discovery during the execution which is needed for innovation. The framework also integrates story development, execution while learning, mindset, behaviors, and innovation leadership.
