We are registered and certified education providers of the leading internationally recognized product development and innovation professional groups: Association of International Product Marketers and Managers (AIPMM) and the Product Development and Management Association (PDMA). As expert online educators, pioneering practices for several Universities; experienced workshop facilitators; and leaders of product development projects, we know how to prepare you to make more meaningful contributions to innovation efforts and stand out from your peers!
We are passionate about helping individuals, groups, and organizations succeed. Unfortunately it is all too easy to identify failures. Business failures are often related to product development issues:
In every case, information was available that could have been used to avoid the mistake or turn a failing situation into a success. What was lacking was knowledge in one of three core areas:
Product Development & Management + Project Management + Innovation Practices
We provide the knowledge to be successful in business. Businesses that are not innovating cannot grow and businesses that do not grow will fail. Successfully developing products is the lifeblood of business.
Product Innovation Educators exists to provide organizations, groups, and individuals with training and knowledge for you to be successful at developing and managing new products. We deliver cost-effective training using highly effective and proven means.
As product development experts, we have been involved with PMI and PDMA for several years. We began working with local chapters to provide training opportunities. We organized and supported study groups to help people prepare for the professional certifications these organizations offer. In the process we learned first-hand how to help people study for these valuable certifications. We also saw many synergies between the bodies of knowledge and the need for Project and Product managers to have a practical understanding of best practices in each other's field. For example, the stated purpose of a project is frequently to develop a product or service and product management requires good project management skills. Also, a key enabler was often missing from those involved in Project and Product management -- innovation practices. Consequently we clearly saw the need for combining Project Management, Product Management, and Innovation Practices. We learned how to do this and how to train others to do the same.
