Innovation Engines™ Leads Industry Discussion on Winning with Innovation – Global Sound

Global Sound – Santa Clara, CA (PRWEB) April 12, 2005

Innovation Engines™, a Silicon Valley based company, today initiated a series of seminars on “Winning with Innovation” led by C. Josh Abend. His background includes heading up SRI’s International Innovation Center, where he orchestrated many innovation programs for world-class companies such as Yamaha, GE, Carrier and others.

Abend has observed and worked with innovation project teams at virtually every level: on the factory floor, on the drawing board, in the classroom and in the executive suite. Additionally he has been a keynote speaker at various innovation conferences around the world. Abend says “Innovation today will shape the destiny of both companies and world regions. As the essential driving force for growth, companies need to learn how to apply advanced innovation systems and tools.”

During the past several years, Abend has been “holed up” with a stealth team distilling their experience and tools into a patent pending system. He was recently coaxed into sharing some of his knowledge in the form of a corporate business seminar series, which started today in Santa Clara.

Ted Munnich, CEO of Black Tulip Systems, commented, “Having worked in large corporations such as 3M as well as smaller companies, I have seen how the various models of innovation operate as Josh described. But, sometimes you need real time help to recognize the right approach to innovation for your particular company, or what the recipe is for your own secret innovation sauce.”
