Program Dates


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 12 - 16
