Innovation Assurance

Innovation Assurance is a series of 12 stimulating power point shows designed to spark innovation on the job. The series is intended for anyone in your organization who is committed to generating new products, services, and processes — as well as being a positive force for change. Additionally, the series is a great way to ensure that graduates of any Idea Champions intervention get the follow-up support they need to stay immersed in the innovation process.

How It Works
Think of Innovation Assurance as a hands-on, on-line creative thinking curriculum. Domino's delivers pizza. FedEx delivers packages. Innovation Assurance delivers the inspiration, information, tools, techniques and process to help people go beyond the status quo, discover new and better ways of doing their job, and become a positive force for change within their organization.
