Since Innovation has become a big part of the Amsted culture, an I-Mentor Bootcamp was held in Chicago the week of October 10th, 2016 at Notre Dame’s Executive Education Center. Twenty-Six Innovation Mentors worked with Dr. Nancy Tennant and Peter Zapf and other business leaders to develop their skills in understanding how to frame, discover, ideate, elaborate and launch innovation.
The course is designed to be thought provoking and to provide the participants with tools to better understand their organizational readiness for innovation. Our I-Mentors will be equipped to assist their colleagues in identifying innovative ideas and in assisting them on how best to move those ideas through the pipeline to completion. Participants gathered from the U. S., Mexico and China. Candidates are selected by their business leader. Amsted will have over 80 I-Mentors by the end of 2016.
