Adopting new innovation processes may present quite a steep learning curve for many of your employees. Our training services help your people acquire the skills to use these processes effectively, and extend their knowledge to the rest of your organization.
Our training takes two forms - software classes to learn how to leverage our software modules, and innovation best-practice workshops to learn proven innovation management techniques.
We offer our training services around the world, from our regional headquarters, in the United States, Europe and Asia.
As part of our implementation service, we provide role-based training classes for the different users of the system. The format of these classes are tailored to meet the specific needs of each customer, and will depend on the modules being deployed and the geographic location and spoken language of participants.
Class formats include:
- Train the users in physical classrooms, at your premises.
- Train the users via live webinars and video recordings.
- Train the trainers, to leverage your internal training staff.
- e-Learning, to replace or supplement classes.
Innovation Best-Practices Training
IFT’s consultants have been studying and teaching innovation best practices for over 20 years. We offer workshops on the theory and practice of innovation, to help your people understand the why, what and how of innovation management. Our workshop content is based on documented research from the Product Development Institute, the Product Development & Management Association (PDMA) and the Project Management Institute (PMI).
These workshops can be delivered standalone, or in conjunction with our software implementation. Workshops include:
- Strategic planning and roadmapping.
- Portfolio management.
- Ideation strategy.
