Course Overview

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 individual 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.

  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.

  7. The topic is very helpful especially to engineering students like me that deals with innovations and creating new ideas and solutions to solve meaningful problems. Thank you for sharing your knowledge about innovations. It helps a lot.
