Some things are etched in stone. Innovation is one of them.
Deming would further describe how consumers didn't ask for a copier or a fax machine - it was the innovators who propelled these products onto the marketplace.
Jobs observed that Apple's approach was that if "we kept putting great products in front of customers, they would continue to open their wallets." And it's been said of Henry Ford that if he asked people what they wanted, they would have replied, "Faster horses."
The point is, innovation fuels growth, and innovation comes from you and no one else.
Today there is a system that increases the speed of innovation as it decreases the risk: Innovation Engineering Management System. Over the past 25 years, this system has been available only to big companies such as Nike, HP, Disney, Procter & Gamble, Schlumberger and Ford. Today, thanks to the Department of Commerce's NIST MEP Network, it's available to companies of all sizes.
From September 10-12 in Rochester, NY, you and your colleagues have the opportunity to learn and apply this system to your company's own products, marketplace and culture. Your instructor is Doug Hall, author, consultant, chemical engineer and the nationally known creator of IE.
