October 11, 2019 — Innovation Engineering Seminar and Workshop


About this Event:

Join Prof. Ikhlaq Sidhu and the Sutardja Center for Entrepreneurship & Technology at the University of California, Berkeley for a talk on Innovation Engineering, a new way to develop ideas, projects, and startups on October 11th from 10am-12pm.

This event is for...

  • Anyone interested to work on future technical and business projects at the Sutardja Center such as our current Volvo, Honda AI Mobility, or GSMA Telecom 5G AI projects.
  • Consulting club students who want to run projects more effectively with their clients
  • Technical students and applied researchers interested their projects to be successful in real life
  • New venture teams who would like to make more progress
  • Anyone interested in technical product management

What is it? The workshop is a crash course on Innovation Engineering, a framework for developing new products, services, technology, applied research, ventures, and even student capstone projects.

SCET is using this method for future projects at the Center., including 5G, AI services, Honda and Volvo AI projects, and others.

At this free workshop, you will learn more about why most technology projects fail, illustrative case studies from successful startups, how to "execute while you learn", why your startup story matters, innovative mindsets and behaviors, and a new way of working to keep your projects on track and make your idea a reality.

What is Innovation Engineering? Innovation Engineering is a practical guide to creating anything new – whether in large firms, research labs, new ventures, or even innovative student projects.

It has been working in our projects at UC Berkeley and beyond: Our validation tests show that teams which properly use Innovation Engineering in their innovative projects have 2 to 4 times productivity. They also get higher quality results and actually feel happier about their projects.

3 students will also receive a free signed copy of the newly released Innovation Engineering book.

Register here. Seating is limited.
