Students earn credential
WILLIAMSPORT — Twenty-seven Pennsylvania College of Technology students received Innovation Engineering Blue Belt certification following their successful completion of all modules within the Principles of Innovation course at the college.
The course teaches the fundamentals of innovation, emphasizing critical thinking, problem solving and stimuli for effective innovation.
Principles of Innovation is one of three classes that together lead to a competency credential in innovation leadership. Throughout the coursework, students learn tangible skills to transform innovation from a random and risky event into a reliable system.
Those who complete all components of the final course in the series, Advanced Innovation II, are eligible for the Innovation Engineering Black Belt.
Penn College’s innovation coursework capitalizes on a partnership with Eureka! Ranch, founded by former Procter and Gamble master marketing inventor Doug Hall to develop reliable methods for increasing innovation speed and decreasing risk. Hall’s system was developed based on the “continuous improvement” principles of W. Edwards Deming, who is credited with helping to rebuild Japan’s economy after World War II.
The Innovation Engineering Blue Belt and Black Belt certifications are issued by Eureka! Ranch and are recognized throughout industry. The skills they represent are applicable to any field.
