INNOVATION ENGINEERING INSTITUTE

A JOINT VENTURE OF THE UNIVERSITY OF MAINE IN ORONO, MAINE AND THE EUREKA! RANCH in CINCINNATI, OHIO.

The organizing structure for the movement is the Innovation Engineering Institute - a joint venture of the University of Maine in Orono, Maine and the Eureka! Ranch of Cincinnati, Ohio.  

The driver behind the never-ending improvement of the 48-skill body of knowledge is the Innovation Engineering Black Belt community. This community of change agents is comprised of certified individuals who have demonstrated mastery of the principles and skills required to help organizations Create, Communicate, and Commercialize meaningfully unique ideas with increased speed and decreased risk. They are the thought leaders that guide the movement. They make suggestions and problem solve solutions to systemic challenges.  They also help one another as they face implementation challenges.

The Innovation Engineering Black Belt change agents exist within companies, colleges, and government agencies. Among those who are investing their time, energy, and money into the movement are large corporations, small companies, governments, colleges and universities, non-profits and non-profit foundations.
