Where do great business ideas come from? We all have compelling business concepts that we've been thinking about for years. In this course we will explore how to use observational tools and other techniques for idea generation and we will talk about how to evaluate the good ideas from the bad. The goal is to settle on a business idea that you are not only passionate about but also has real market application.

TOP REVIEWS FROM THE SEARCH FOR GREAT IDEAS: HARNESSING CREATIVITY TO EMPOWER INNOVATION.
Finding this course very useful and practical. One criticism is that it takes a sudden leap in the last week expecting that you have a business idea that you a ready to start executing on.
Good information about empowering the creativity for innovators
I've learned about different thinking methodology throughout this course, and I've been able to shape my thinking during this course.
This is a good course, thanks to Dr Forrest S.Carter and Dr Ken Syzmusiak for the lecture also to mentor staff. Thanks
