 ASTDps: May 2013 Chapter Meeting

Accelerating Innovation

Please note day change


Today, with accelerating technology and social change, there is growing demand for innovation: powerful new ideas turned into practical products and services. Even when there are good innovative ideas on the table, few people understand how to take an idea from conception to commercialization. Organizations of all kinds can benefit from a proven process to develop innovative, customer-specific solutions. The Target, Explore, Develop, Optimize, and Commercialize (TEDOC) methodology is being put to use today locally and worldwide to innovate new solutions and solve problems faster and with a better success rate in the market.  Through presentation, brief exercises and discussion, participants will learn to explain the five phases of the TEDOC innovation process and walk away with ideas for how to leverage it in their learning and development programs and organizations.
