The more team members you enroll in your organization, the more benefits you can acquire. Depending on the number of members enrolled in our courses, you could obtain these benefits:
Acquire the necessary tools and techniques to work with parts and people to move forward in your innovation.
Learn more about the benefits the innovative and transformative framework can offer you and your organization.
Explore how to turn “hunches” into tangible, real-world hurdles by envisioning their solutions.
Beginning with your initial hunch and the resources you already have, you will explore the systematic process of innovating. In doing so you will examine the role of critical thinking in innovating, design your own toolkit to solve real-world problems and learn more about the benefits this framework can offer you and your organization.
Delve into hunches
Work with strategies and toolkits for innovation
How to work with limited resources
Collect and use data & information appropriately
All the participants who successfully complete their program will receive an MIT Professional Education Certificate of Completion, as well as Continuing Education Units (CEUs)*.
To obtain CEUs, complete the accreditation confirmation, which is available at the end of the course. CEUs are calculated for each course based on the number of learning hours.
*The Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is defined as 10 contact hours of ongoing learning to indicate the amount of time they have devoted to a non-credit/non-degree professional development program.
To understand whether or not these CEUs may be applied toward professional certification, licensing requirements, or other required training or continuing education hours, please consult your training department or licensing authority directly.

Module 1: Introduction to General Method and Structure of Problems
In this module, you'll become familiar with the three fundamental skills for innovating: being productively wrong, working with parts you already have, and learning how to move up and down scale to reduce uncertainty.
Module 2: On Hunches and Scoping out Problems
In this module, we will understand how to come up with a hunch and how to work with one, as well as how to streamline a hunch to formulate and scope out a problem.
Module 3: The Structure of an Opportunity Hypothesis
After learning how to formulate our ideas, we will learn how to outline organizational hypotheses that can solve our problems. We will learn how to approach people and give them a precise description of our organization. Finally, we will take care of adjacencies.
Module 4: Making the Problem and Opportunities Tangible (Parts and People) at Table Scale
Next, we will learn how to work with parts and people, and how to bring your problem to table scale, we will understand the difference between digital, tangible, and non-tangible parts and help you identify the pitfalls of overreliance on digital twins.
Module 5: Advocating for What's Next-Scaling Up
In Module 5 we will learn how to advocate for scaling up, how to use storytelling to help you in advocacy, and how to produce a checklist that can help you face — and conquer — uncertainty.
Module 6: Creating Technology-Problem Report
Moving forward we will use the data we've collected thus far, understand what pitfalls to avoid when creating a technology-problem report (the don'ts), and write your final effective technology-problem report.

This excellent course is not just a 'follow the recipe' technique, rather it is a structured way of mentally approaching and evaluating innovation. It equips you to think critically and creatively about the solution you perceive, recognize and deal with innovation problems early on in the process, and remove uncertainties. I found the framework presented to be valuable and thought-provoking, and it is definitely something I will use in the future.
