Researchers from Tech's Enterprise Innovation Institute have spent several months studying Dalton's economy and talking to entrepreneurs, businesses and political leaders and Dalton State College students.

Innovation Management Workshop Scheduled for March
Improve your innovation strategy to increase your competitiveness

Innovation is defined as commercializing a meaningfully unique idea that a customer will pay for. However, only 10% of companies choose to compete on innovation strategy. These same companies have a return on sales that is twice as high as those that compete primarily on low cost, quality or delivery metrics. Learn to develop new processes, services, or products that will contribute significantly to your profitability. Over the next 20 years, innovation management will be a key business growth strategy.

Through this five hour workshop you will:
  • Discover why Innovation Management is a "must-have" for business growth
  • Understand the types of innovation and why they are important
  • Be able to identify the warning signs that innovation is not driving your strategy
  • Learn to implement tools to create innovative ideas
  • Participate in exercises to begin your journey
