In our company , to manage innovation & to promote the culture of innovation , we have started a concept called IScM ( Innovation school of management ). IScM works like any other college , open only to our employees . It is a 6 months corse , where the selected candidates , are trained on tools & techniques of innovation , through class room session & exposing them to other industries.

IScM , has its own prospectus , detailing the curriculam , and interested employees , have to send their filled in pre printed application . This is followed by writtn test & oral interview , to select the candidates for the course.

The selected candidates after 3 days of class room session , are given orbit shift projects , in their area of work . They are mentored on a weekly basis , and they are given 4 hours free time to work on the projects. In 6 months time , after they complete the project , they get to present to the top management. They are also awarded graduateship in Innovation , in a grand convocation ceremony attended by all Top management people.

IScM is running for the last 3 years in our company and has resulted in quantum leap in productivity in many areas and a cost saving of over 25 Million USD. Also many great recognition , in many innovation compettetion.

The Long term plan is to convert all stake holders who are working for us into a trained innovator.

I will be happy to share more details on specific request.

Thanks for sharing–great idea. Sounds similar to GE's “workout” program but more focused on innovation. I hope it includes not just techniques but personallity assessments including assessments such as Byers Briggs, Kirton KAI(R), HBCD(R) and similar tools to help people understand how they think about and analyze a problem. This can be just as important, if not more so, than the problem solving tools.
