IEEE-USA innovation forum will help prepare US tech leaders to prosper in a global marketplace
Date:10/2/2007

WASHINGTON (1 October 2007) -- Because engineers are our countrys principal innovators, and innovation generates economic activity and leads to desirable, high-paying jobs, IEEE-USA will host its first IEEE-USA Innovation Forum at the Fairview Park Marriott in Falls Church, Va., on 6-8 November.

The day-and-a-half forum is designed to promote the innovation process, highlight new technologies and trends, and help scientists, engineers and allied professionals improve their innovative skills. Unlike programs offered by and for business school graduates, the IEEE-USA Innovation Forum is grounded in the experience of successful technology innovators.

IEEE-USA Innovation Institute President Ralph W. Wyndrum thinks the forum will benefit individuals and their organizations in todays globally competitive environment.

Innovation has been the hallmark of American engineering, said Wyndrum, who served as IEEE-USA president in 2006. We need to retain our role as the worlds technology leader and innovation incubator. Our forum will help prepare leaders responsible for the innovation of new products and services by sharing the experiences of successful innovators in a coordinated program of interaction, mentoring and networking.

Current and future leaders from industry, academia and government will have the opportunity to learn from a distinguished faculty that includes: Mike Austin, who has served as president and CEO of numerous U.S. steel companies; Alain Rostain, founder and principal of Creative Advantage, a strategic innovation consulting firm; Mauro Togneri, a former president and senior executive of U.S. companies with R&D, sales and manufacturing operations around the world; and Steve Walker, an entrepreneur and former Defense Department engineer who helped develop the ARPAnet packet switching system that evolved into the Internet.

Howard Lieberman, founder and CEO of the Silicon Valley Innovation Institute, will deliver the keynote address.

Attendees will learn to innovate in a team-setting and work through real case studies. Group discussions and exercises will focus on:

  • Leadership and cultures impact on innovation

  • Large vs. small organizations as foundations for innovation

  • The innovation process and how to leverage your style to promote innovation

  • Capitalizing on new technologies and processes

The event begins on 6 November with an opening night reception and dinner. The forum starts the next day with a full day of teaching and includes breakfast, lunch and breaks. It will conclude with a half-day program that includes breakfast and a morning break. The cost is $795 for IEEE members and $950 for non-members. See http://www.innovation-institute.org/dcforum/.
