UIDP Webinar: Finding Order in Chaos

May 1, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

This webinar shares an approach for technical problem solving that efficiently and effectively identifies “out of the box” solutions.

The approach is particularly effective for large, diverse groups, such as are common in university-industry partnerships. A key element is creation of functional maps which help enroll and focus all team members on the problem to be solved and identify new spaces to study for solutions. Participants will learn the approach and how it can be used to find order in the chaos of problem solving. Participants will also get an overview of how the approach can lead to stronger Intellectual Property.

As an introduction to the approach, see the first 3 articles in this link.

Participation is free!
