About this Course

As professionals, we are expected to constantly generate ideas – whether for our personal endeavors or for the organization we work with. Not all ideas are great: some ideas may be original and innovative but still completely miss the mark while some ideas may sound simple but create massive impact and some of these ideas become part of history.

Innovation is for individuals or any organization – startups, small and medium enterprises, corporations, nonprofit organizations, or social enterprises – as long as you are willing to step out of your comfort zone and absorb new information.

In this session, we will understand what defines innovation, debunk the common misconceptions about innovation and creativity, what makes ideas innovative and impactful, and how to bring these ideas to the next level.

Course Objective

  • To learn what is innovation
  • To consider an idea as a good innovation

  1. I really enjoyed the presentation of Ms. Mitch. It was very thorough and very informative. The way she discuss the topic (Turning Creative Ideas to Innovation) made me realize it was quite the same as the six sigma or at least can be an excellent combination when applying six sigma. The speaker (Ms. Mitch) explain each topic in a vivid manner whereas she has my undivided attention. Thank you to ASK LEX PH ACADEMY for another productive and excellent course that is provided for us especially thanks you Ms. Michelle Angela Melo for sharing her knowledge in Innovation.

  2. This course is very similar to our subject Technopreneurship in Industrial Engineering, but it gave me new insights that I would really be able to use if I ever pursue a career in it.

  3. Thank you for this webinar it is very informative and it helps me to grow my ideas,
    Innovations contribute to the success of the company. Entrepreneur, as innovators, see not just one solution to a need. They keep coming up with ideas and do not settle until they come up with multiple solutions.

  4. I am pretty surprised how it never dawned on me that an entrepreneur is different from a business person. This webinar is very informative and helpful at the same time. I can’t wait to step into the world of entrepreneurship and expand my horizon and knowledge to contribute innovative ideas that are socially relevant nowadays.

  5. It is very concise. Really being an innovative person will open up a lot of opportunities when we try hard enough and this webinar hits the spot where we needed it. I’m still gaining information because someday, I will also try to start some business and this webinar is my introduction to gain something useful in the future. Sharing the mindset of some of the most successful entrepreneurs makes it more challenging to do even better so good luck to us and thanks for this wonderful topic.

  6. The lesson is a huge opportunity for us especially as a student because it allow us to undertand what is the true definition of innovative and how can it be used in entrepreneurship. In our early age, it can allow us to understand well and may also help us for our future passion.

  11. The session provided a very insightful discussion on how a creative idea can be transformed into an innovation. I learned about the things to consider to make this possible.

  14. This session was jam-packed with knowledge that would prove extremely beneficial to us, IE students. Each topic was discussed briefly but comprehensively enough for us to understand. It teaches a great deal about the distinctions between innovators and entrepreneurs, which most of us confuse or treat as synonymous in business terms. Thank you for this enlightening discussion that teaches us all a significant lessons.

  15. What caught my attention the most is that you cannot offer inexpensiveness and convenience simultaneously. Some always pursue both so it’s a good note to take.

  21. As an aspiring startup founder, it was a great opportunity for me to listen to Ms. Michelle. The importance of market validation impressed in my heart. It doesn’t matter how refined your product is but it would be pointless if your customer doesn’t need or want it at all. One example of this is the google glass. Of course, there is allowance for failure. But we have to be sure of our business decisions since time and money is a limited source.

  22. Thank you Engr. Michelle, I learned a lot with this talk, very Informative and helpful. Listening to the your customer and tribe is my biggest take away from this webinar.

Also, this experience will help me a lot in many aspects of my life, especially in my studies. Thank you Ask Lex PH Academy and Engr. Michelle.
