Passport to Innovation®

Passport to Innovation®  embeds innovation day-to-day on the job. It is a program and approach for organizations who want new results and to develop their people at the same time.

PTI is for organizations with less than 300 employees, and who truly want to unleash their people’s creative potential and engage them in making a difference in their work, the organizations’ mission and the industry.

PTI is an action learning program. It develops leaders. They learn innovation processes and use creativity thinking tools;  they create innovation-friendly environments and enable innovative products to result. By the end of the program, they will know key innovation checkpoints through which people pass on their journey to create new futures for customers, the organization, teams and products.

According to the American Society of Training and Development, 40% of learned skills transfer immediately.  Without reinforcement, only 25% of skills learned remain after just six months.  In other words only 10% of learned skills remain if not reinforced. That’s one of the reasons PTI is structure the way it is.

In PTI training, people engage
