Tools and Techniques for Managing Innovation From Beginning to End
AIChE Annual Meeting
Minneapolis Convention Center
Tuesday, October 18, 2011 - 8:30am to 11:00am
This is a tutorial session on innovation and its management from the beginning of the new idea cycle to its implementation in a formal project. We have come to realize that Six Sigma and DFSS can eliminate variation in what we know how to do, or plan to do, but cannot by themselves produce innovation. Innovation needs to start with an idea coupled to a need. Its flesh and bones need to be provided by people and their supporting organizations. Finally, the business and manufacturing concepts behind the innovation must be implemented by smart project management. This session will review the necessary skills to make this journey successful, including proper idea identification, putting together innovation and project teams, and successful project management.
Paper abstracts are public but to access Extended Abstracts, you must first purchase the conference proceedings.
