The program is comprehensive, neutral and rigorous, providing participants the unique and sought after acumen and recognition to become an innovation catalyst for their organization. The framework for this 7 month program includes a clearly articulated Unified Methodology for innovation presented in three multi-day, in-person sessions, combined with on-line learning during intersessions, and two major projects – one team based and one individual. The participants must attend all three in-person class sessions, complete a comprehensive examination, submit their individual project for review, and contribute to the content and knowledge in the field of innovation in order to achieve certification.

Session 1 March 14 - 18
Session 2 June 13 - 17, and
