Overview

This program offers a fresh approach—a doer's approach—to innovating. Aspiring innovators will explore how to turn their “hunches” into tangible, real-world problems by learning to envision the organizations that can solve them. You will discover the advantages of converting challenges into opportunities and acquire the necessary tools and techniques to work with parts and people to move forward in your innovating. Throughout this program, you will

  • Delve into hunches: what they look like and their central role in solving real-world problems.
  • Examine the solvable, recognizable, and verifiable attributes of real-world problems in order to devise solutions for them.
  • Engage in a process of critical thinking to prototype and scale up your problem.
  • Develop a kit for innovating, incorporating the strategies and tools needed to transform hunches into real-world impact.
  • Work with strategies for scoping out a space of opportunity.
  • Address significant problems with limited resources by bringing them down to table scale.
  • Discover how to secure the tangible and non-tangible resources needed to scale up your work.
  • Explore how to collect and use data and information appropriately and to your advantage to write a final technology-problem report that advances your innovating.
