This training and development programme develops the knowledge and skills needed by those who wish to deliver the Managing Innovation (MI) training programme as certified trainers. Participants undertake a considerable academic study in order to learn about the research programme. In addition, they become proficient in delivering the content and facilitating experiential activities.
Only those who have attended the MI programme can be considered for the Train-the-Trainer (TTT) programme. The TTT begins with a six-day course, followed by private study using eight specially commissioned DVDs and skill practice sessions. This prepares participants for their ‘certification class’, which, if completed successfully, entitles trainers to deliver the MI programme. At least 20 days of participant’s time is needed to complete this demanding programme. Materials are available in English and Spanish.
This five-module flagship development programme is for those who wish to act as innovation consultants or change agents. The initial module (nine days) provides an intensive personal development experience combined with inputs on intervention theory and innovation capability development.
The second, third and fourth modules (three days each) support participants as they undertake a real intervention to facilitate innovation in a client system. The final module (four days) provides an opportunity to learn from experience and devise a professional development plan for each participant. Extensive documentation is provided.
