Innovation Training Program for the Academia SIT– March 2014 Rational Universities in Vietnam are looking to enrich their students with a new set of thinking tools. For that reason SIT LTD was asked to design a training plan that will include both the teaching of some SIT tools and the development of innovation capabilities of using these tools, within the participants. This program is also designed to inspire Universities’ students with understanding and enthusiasm regarding thinking differently in a useful and effective way. About The Program The training program is divided into 3 main stages:  The first stage includes a series of 12 webinars, aimed at enhancing participants’ knowledge regarding key innovation terms and concepts. 2 of the webinars will be facilitated by Prof. Jacob Goldenberg.  The second stage includes an Innovation “Hands On” Workshop, which is dedicated to learn how to identify, initiate and plan innovation processes and opportunities at our professional environment.  The third stage will take place at the following day of the workshop, and will include SIT clinic hours, in order to allow the participants to accelerate and integrate what they've learned into their own projects and relevant professional issues. Program Goals  Provide a general understanding of the Systematic Inventive Thinking method and its unique characteristics (thinking patterns, divergence – convergence model, etc.).  Provide the participants with tools they can implement in order to promote a new approach to innovation in their professional environment.  Learn basic elements of the SIT innovation process, which will allow the participants to generate and sustain efficient and tangible novel ideas and solutions.
