  • Joseph V: Katz, Von Hipple and Paap. A great team to lead this program and provide a wake up call to the design, development, marketing and process within an organization. Basically a map to seeing what works, doesn't work and moving and motivating the innovation process to become a client centric organization in product planning, development and implementation. The discussions were extremely provocative and challenging, especially those led by Von Hipple focsing on lead-users and how to manage the organization process to serve those leaders and emerging opportunities. Our class was energized by this program and we left with many ideas. Within my organization we've used a number of tools to increase our client captures from occasional use of our product/toolsets to several clients now 'locked-in'. I'd recommend this program to any manager, marketeer, or engineer for the insights and strategic ideas presented.

  • George R: I very much enjoyed Prof von Hippel's presentation on innovation. After his class I engaged in a discussion with him where I shared I intended to implement what I learned in his class at my company. A new redesigned website is underway which incoporate the innovated customer or end user participatory elements that will make the use experience of our product better understood and cause the customer to participate in the design of his product therby ensuring return business.
