How Quick Start works
STEP 1: CONVENIENT ONLINE CLASS PRE-WORK
Before attending the Innovation Engineering Quick Start class participants use a private Innovation Engineering portal to complete a half day of home-study comprising about 33 short digital classes. Each digital class contains a video explaining the concept of a skill followed by a short quiz. In this way students become familiar with the fundamentals of how to create, communicate, and commercialise meaningfully unique solutions to challenges.

STEP 2: PRACTICAL “HANDS ON” CLASSES 
Participants join fellow classmates at the 2.5 days of LIVE in class work to make the digital learning real. They work through hands on interactive experiences that help them learn how to apply the skills introduced in the pre-work. They work in small teams that constantly change throughout the course. A Coach will guide their work while they get live feedback from online instructors that grade their submissions.

STEP 3: BACK TO WORK CERTIFICATION 
During the final stages of step 2 participants get support planning how to translate all that they have experienced back in to the work place to embed learning. This is facilitated by a collection of on-line assignments which will be completed using real work situations. The goal is that this will not feel incremental to the day job, rather this will enable smarter working, problem solving and the growth of an innovation culture.
Back at work the class get expert coaching digitally via the Zoom video conferencing platform either individually or as a group, as they apply the skills to real problems / challenges at work via the remaining assignments. The class has access to their digital learning space, a collaboration zone and innovation tools via the Innovation Engineering cloud-based portal for 6 months in total. All coaching and grading will be undertaken by an IE Black Belt.
Once all assignments are completed successfully participants will be awarded a Blue Belt certificate in Innovation Engineering.

#1 IN THE WORLD. 
The demand for a smarter and faster innovation system is so great that Innovation Engineering has taken off.  
Thought Leading Companies that have contributed data and insights to the movement include: Procter & Gamble, Walmart, Toyota Manufacturing, Lockheed Martin, Walt Disney, Nike, American Express, Ford Motor Company and tens of thousands of others. 
Here are the numbers:
• Innovations worth $17 billion in net marketplace value in active development.
• Over 35,000 trained.
• Over 50 Innovation Engineering Network partners - colleges, universities and consultancies.
INVENTED & VALIDATED A SYSTEM THAT IS 500%MORE EFFECTIVE THAN BRAINSTORMING.  
The Stimulus Response® method makes it easy for anyone to create innovate solutions to their daily challenges and business problems. 
VALIDATED - INCREASED INNOVATION SPEED (UP TO 6X) AND DECREASED RISK (UP TO 10X SUCCESS). 
Step change improvement in innovation metrics is a result of transitioning from a ‘guru” model for innovation to enabling innovation by everyone through applying System Driven Innovation® principles of Dr. W. Edwards Deming.
THE WORLD'S FIRST VALIDATED METRICS SYSTEM FOR INNOVATION.
Modelling innovation metrics can be tricky because there are so many unknowns. Innovation Engineering metrics actually incorporate that variation to create models so predictive Jim Filliben of the National Institute of Standards and Technology presented a paper validating the approach. 
THE WORLD'S FIRST APPLICATION OF "PLAN, DO, STUDY, ACT" INTO INNOVATION PROJECT MANAGEMENT.
Deming's Plan, Do, Study, Act method for never-ending improvement goes beyond principle. The Innovation Engineering Labs Project Management tool makes "PDSA" a built in part of the work process, ensuring that learning & documentation are natural parts of every innovation project.
TRANSFORMED INNOVATION FROM A RANDOM GAMBLE TO A RELIABLE SYSTEM.  
The Innovation Engineering field of study transforms innovation into a real science. It’s grounded in the world’s largest database of quantitative data on innovation - over 25,000 innovations, deep data on 6,000 teams, over $14 billion in innovations as they go from raw idea to reality.  
THE FIRST COMPLETE SYSTEM THAT DRIVES A 72% INCREASE IN NET INNOVATION VALUE.
Unlike others that are front end driven, Innovation Engineering goes all the way to reality. The result is ideas grow in value all through development instead of declining. (Leading organisations cite "normal" development systems make innovation values decrease 50% or more.)
INVENTED & VALIDATED AN IDEA DECISION SYSTEM THAT IS 7X SMARTER THAN HUMANS.
Merwyn Truth Teller® research provides data grounded principles for improving odds of success plus a quantitative assessment that tells you the true odds of success. 
VALIDATED AS "BREAKOUT INNOVATION SYSTEM” BY STANFORD UNIVERSITY. 
A team of Stanford researchers found that most “innovation methods” don’t actually result in innovative solutions. Most simply result in “innovation as usual.” They found that Innovation Engineering went beyond “Innovation-as-Usual” to true Breakout Innovation - out performing even IDEO Design Thinking.
THE WORLD'S FIRST 5 YEAR FINANCIAL FORECAST FOR INNOVATION.
Using a blend of Fourt Woodlock and Bass Diffusion models, the 5 Year Life Cycle model can predict sales over 5 years and the impact of diffusion on word-of-mouth.
INVENTED & VALIDATED A TEACHING SYSTEM THAT IS 200 TO 400% MORE EFFECTIVE WITH ADULTS. 
Patent pending Cycles to Mastery® enables everyone who is willing to achieve mastery. 
It works for EVERY INDUSTRY.
The methods and systems you'll learn have been applied in diverse industries across the globe.  As long as you have people working together and aim to increase innovation efforts - then the systems-driven approach of Innovation Engineering will help you.
Is it worth doing?

"Before this, our revenue fell over 30% in one year. It was a huge wakeup call. We're now seeing a 300% increase!"
FAQs
Do you have to be engineers or in innovation to take the course?
NO! All different areas of an organization have taken the course and completed certification. The reason it's called 'Innovation Engineering' is because it's both teaching you how to stretch your creative side to innovate but also stretches your 'how can we make this actually work so we can do it' side at the same time.
Are there pre-requisites?
NO! You need no special training to come to the course. It's built to make you successful with ZERO experience.
Does it apply to my industry/profession?
Absolutely. If you need to solve problems and do it faster, smarter, and more innovatively - then it 100% applies.
How long is the course?
The live class portion is 2.5 days, 8.30am-5.30pm.  Pre-work includes a half-day of video courses.  Post work for the certification, if you choose to pursue it, is independent work with a coach.
When & where are the courses?
18-20 September DUNDEE
23-25th October BELFAST
27-29th November NEWCASTLE
Can I attend alone or Should I bring a team?
Quick Start is awesome for individuals and teams alike. Teams of 4 have the additional bonus of getting a 4 for the price of 3 deal work. If you have larger teams, we are happy to run a private course for you.  Just contact us and we'll create a great training plan just for your team.
What will I personally get from the course?
You'll learn how to create and communicate meaningfully unique ideas to solve problems, how to test your idea to see if it's any good, and how to make it a reality fast.  And if you choose, you can pursue your Innovation Engineering Blue Belt Certification.  (80%+ people do.)
How does the certification work?
If you pass all the certification assignments within 60 days of attending the live class, you will be certified as an Innovation Engineering Blue Belt by the Innovation Engineering Institute. Certification is something you can put on your resume, LinkedIn, and mention it in your next review at work!
Is it an online class or in-person?
Both. Once you register you get online access to the library of video courses to watch before attending the live 2.5-day class. Following the class you have 60 days to submit assignments and work virtually with your coach.
Does the class get cancelled?
In the rare chance that something prevents us from running a course that you're signed up for we'll of course give you a complete refund and work out a plan with you for rescheduling at your convenience.
I'm busy. How am I supposed to find time for this in addition to my regular work?!?
That's the best part! When you apply your new innovative skills during your certification it is applied to your EXISTING to-do list. Meaning the course WON'T ADD to your work, it will actually help you get it done!
