POWELL, Wyo. - An intensive training is scheduled Feb. 8-10 at Northwest College to provide business, government and not-for-profit leaders the tools to grow through innovation.

Participants in the Innovation Engineering Leadership Institute will be engaged for two and a half days in learning a process that can help their business or enterprise come up with ideas, competently tell others about them, and then develop a quick and easy method to test if their idea can really make money.

The focus of the institute is on learning a proven process that’s designed to help profit and nonprofit enterprises generate innovative ideas that go to market/development faster and more inexpensively.

In the past two years, Wyoming business owners and nonprofit leaders from LaGrange to Sheridan have successfully participated in the institute to learn how to lower the risk and cost of producing new ideas or products.

Doug Hall of the Eureka! Ranch teaches the intense training that includes day and evening sessions. Considered experts on business growth, The Eureka! Ranch team works with top name companies like Proctor & Gamble, Nike, Disney and Coca Cola.

Its interactive programming is geared to showing how Wyoming enterprises can create, communicate and commercialize opportunities for growth in the public or private sector.

The Innovation Engineering Leadership Institute is sponsored by Manufacturing-Works and the Northwest College Center for Training and Development.

These two partners, along with First Bank of Wyoming, are also helping host a Deming Dinner Tuesday, Feb. 7, at The Commons to honor W. Edwards Deming’s, innovative thinking and accomplishments by recognizing outstanding Wyoming businesses. Click here for further details.

More information and registration options for the leadership institute, including scholarships and nonprofit discounts, are available online.
