Innovation Management

Rose-Hulman Engineering Management Spring Seminar - April 26th

Innovation presents many diverse opportunities and challenges for organizations. Management actions that influence innovation range from strategic direction, to alliances, to hiring, to new product development, to organizational culture. The seminar goal is to offer insight into how organizations can better manage innovation, as well as how individuals can better contribute to innovation in their work activities.

The seminar offers an overview of the patterns and best practice in the innovation literature. Presentations on two common techniques, Technology Road Mapping, and Scenario planning, demonstrate their use in leading innovation. Speakers from Beckman Coulter, Steel Dynamics and Rolls-Royce will discuss approaches they have used to address issues they encounter in innovation.

The seminar includes a panel discussion of corporate representatives about issues that concern them, problems encountered, best practices employed, and innovation-related skills they look for in their technical employees.

Participants will receive 6 PDH (professional development hours toward Indiana’s continuing education requirements for Professional Engineers) for attending the seminar.
