The briefing includes the five best practices of the innovation elite, real company examples, and tools and techniques that help executives implement an effective and sustainable innovation process. There is even an end-of-briefing assessment to demonstrate how innovative the user’s company is based on each best practice.

David Silverstein, President and CEO of Breakthrough Management Group and co-author of Insourcing Innovation commented, “Senior executives consistently rank innovation as one of their top three priorities yet a condensed, hands-on set of actions has not been available to the busy senior manager.

They’ve revolutionized the e-course for online instruction in Six Sigma, Lean manufacturing and other methods.

  • Identify innovation champions in their company
  • Replicate the methods elite firms use to discover the unmet and unarticulated needs of their customers
