The Vermont Manufacturing Extension Center (VMEC) in Randolph Center has announced a new three-day innovation fundamentals course that teaches students how to work smarter right now—no matter their skill, title, or experience.

This training is designed to ignite innovation within the people, projects, and cultures of businesses and organizations.

Anyone who wants to learn how to create, pitch, test and implement new ideas for products, services, customers and markets, processes, business models, and systems should attend.

The Innovation Engineering Quick Start course, February 27 -March 1 at GlobalFoundries in Essex Junction, will be taught by international innovation expert and entrepreneur, Doug Hall, founder and CEO of Eureka!Ranch in Cincinnati, Ohio.

The course teaches the fundamentals of innovation, and gives attendees opportunities to apply this learning to their current work. The course is based on 12 core skills that make up innovation engineering, a relatively new field of leadership science and academic study.

Innovation engineering is about applying the discipline of engineering and systems thinking to innovation. VMEC is one of the early innovation engineering “pioneers,” and since 2006, has introduced and supported the use of this method in a variety of Vermont companies and organizations, helping them to ignite innovation and more profitable growth.
