Innovation Engineering 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. It is needed because smart teams with talented people and good plans often fail. Innovation Engineering is unique because it brings inductive learning into the process of an innovation project. The framework also includes story, mindset, behaviors, and leadership required for innovation. This concept was created by Ikhlaq Sidhu who developed the process at UC Berkeley over the years from 2005 to 2019.
