Industry Training Program
Technical professionals, those with backgrounds in science, technology, engineering and math are the drivers of innovation, the ones who are tasked with developing the next suite of products and services that will drive corporate growth.
But innovation is more than just coming up with and producing new offerings. To be successful at the innovation game, you must get those products and services accepted in the market. And to get accepted in the marketplace, you have to overcome humans’ natural reluctance to change. In order to that you must understand human behaviour, something that few technical professionals have studied or have a background in.
Our industry training programs focus on helping technical professionals understand human behaviour and incorporate it into the development, assessment, and launch of new products and services. These programs also help them gain the soft skills that are essential to a productive career.
The following is a list of training programs we offer. These programs can be customized to meet your specific needs and be offered as one hour speeches, half or full day workshops, or as long term, continuous programs.
Our programs in the area of market discovery help innovators understand their target customer in order to successfully launch new products or services. Individual programs include:
- Using Design Thinking to Uncover New Business Opportunities
- Assessing the Market Potential of New Products and Services
- Crafting an Effective Value Proposition
Validating your Product Market Fit
