The application of system thinking to innovation is part of this movement known as Innovation Engineering. It’s a new field of study, formally taken to industry in 2009. The principles behind it are grounded in 33 years of quantitative research, concept development and application of systems thinking to innovation for the world’s most innovative companies by Doug Hall, the CEO and Founder of the Eureka!Ranch. Innovation Engineering databases include: test results on 20,000+ innovations, measurement of 15,000+ innovation teams and week-by-week project data on over $8 billion worth of real world innovations, as they travel from idea to market. And that’s just the start. Every quarter the Innovation Engineering Institute R&D team studies the latest data from around the world – fields experiments – and reports the learnings to the Innovation Engineering Black Belts on academic campuses and in industry who are the heart and soul of the movement. Innovation Engineering is grounded in applying the system thinking of Dr. W. Edwards Deming to innovation. The Innovation Engineering curriculum for Universities is developed through a partnership with the University of Maine. The Eureka!Ranch team includes statisticians, patent lawyer, human system experts and leading edge programming experts who together develop and deliver intelligent tools and work systems that enable and empower people to take ideas to market faster and with less risk.
I find it remarkable that concepts tend to keep growing through this process and emerge not only more viable (significantly lower risk) but also more valuable (significantly enhanced beyond their original conception). We've already been able to bring new ideas to reality that I don't think we could have done without applying the Innovation Engineering system.John JeffersDirector of Geosciences, Southwestern Energy
Innovation Engineering has taught us that innovation does not have to be a random act that occurs within a limited number of people. It is a process that has the potential to materially impact our bottom line.John C. GarganiVice President & General Manager
Bruce consistently drives strong results and leaves each business in much better shape than when he started. He is able to sort through business complexity and focus an organization on the few things that really drive superior results. He is a natural leader, communicator and motivator. His marketing and strategy experience and expertise sets him apart.Tom HallExecutive Director, Hult International Business School
Our first engagement with Eureka revealed a big opportunity which had previously gone unnoticed by our team. Not only did we uncover the need, but we validated it on the spot and utilized Innovation Engineering to speed it to market within 18 months.Eric C. SeiboldInsights & Innovation Manager, ITW/Permatex
