Technology Intelligence Training Influences Innovation
Today Armstrong Flooring has made technology intelligence a critical piece of its innovation process. The organization uses our approach to anticipate and define early stage opportunities and inform and validate later stage projects. Our technology intelligence training influences technology innovation across the organization from manufacturing processes, product development, and business operations, to building external partnerships and development programs.
We researched many different approaches and processes to innovation. RTI Innovation Advisors provided the most logical approach to scour the landscape of technology, converge on the best ideas and proactively engage the entire organization in doing so. RTI Innovation Advisors are top notch educators and their program is tailored to the client’s individual needs. They do a fantastic job delivering the content in a way that is tied to real examples and emphasizes key takeaways. They educate not only innovators, but the entire stakeholder group needed to guide the research effort. The technology intelligence tool set is easy to use and provides critical documentation to guide the functional team as it works. This process engages innovation teams in a way that empowers them to learn, communicate freely and make sound decisions more quickly based on knowledge of the current technology landscape.Brian Beakler, Ph.D., Front End Innovation
