Free Innovation Manager On-line Training

Jeffrey Baumgartner broadcast liveI am in the process of completing a short, free on-line training course for innovation managers. It will teach you how to get more relevant and innovative ideas, how to ensure lots of those ideas are implemented and how to measure the performance of your innovation initiative. The course consists of text, short videos and a worksheet, so you can do it at your own pace. You can also contact me any time if you have questions or want feedback. It should be complete by mid-April. If you would like to receive an invitation email when the course is ready for you, please fill in the contact form.

"Your perspectives are very enlightening... In an ocean of not-so-useful info about innovation, you manage to get the perls on a regular basis." - Ericcson

Conventional Innovation Consultant vs Me

Cartoon: Jeffrey vs conventional consultant

Think about it for a moment. If you want someone to help you and your team devise and realise more innovative ideas, should you look to someone with a business background similar to your own or should you look to someone with a more diverse, international experience? Do you want the status quo or the eccentric? If you appreciate that it takes a real outsider to bring fresh thinking to your organisation, get in touch! If you prefer the status quo, don't worry there are lots of very conventional innovation consultants hungry for your business.

"I just got my first copy of your newsletter. Wow! It's wonderful! Very good advice, very helpful. Thank you! One of the few newsletters I get that is worth reading and actually useful, thoughtful and inspired. Thank you!" BB (Publisher)
