Innovation Boot Camp, Strategies, Tools & Techniques for Breakthrough Results
Innovation has become top priority for organizations and individuals that want to remain competitive and achieve sustainable success and growth. Yet most companies lack a capable team of innovators to achieve these desired breakthroughs. Robert Tucker's revolutionary Innovation Boot Camp teaches everyone, even with no experience innovating, a strategy for innovation, and walks your team step-by-step through every phase of the innovation cycle. From idea creation, through prototyping and testing, and to the end result of selling your innovation to your customers, your team will go beyond "theory" with exercises designed to produce innovative ideas from start to finish. This surprisingly simple method is ideal for employees that grasp the mechanical "input-output" mentality of modern business, and convert them into highly-creative, and radically innovative, executers.
