Course Description

3.086x: The Iterative Innovation Process draws heavily upon the course material used in 3.086x: Innovation and Commercialization. Though there have been significant changes to the course, this course is not an entirely new edX offering.

People innovate, not organizations. This course is for anybody who wants to understand the innovation process - whether you want to foster innovation within your organization or whether you want to personally innovate.

As practicing innovators, we teach you the fundamentals of how to think like an innovator. Innovation is an iterative process, not a linear one. When innovating, there are thousands of sources of uncertainty in Technology, Implementation, and Markets. We teach you how to cycle through these sources of uncertainty until the right pieces come together in an innovation.

Throughout the course, we build up the innovation process model step by step with real examples and exercis...

After this first 8-week stage, assimilating MIT's iterative innovation processes, by our mentor Andreas Wankerl, .. led me to change my mental structure in the way I perceive the relationship of Market + Technology concepts e Implementation ceased to be an obscure and uncertain cave that was plagued by infertile propaganda and disorienting the networks. Our formation in society and traditional education leads us to a continuum of events that only by direct association and deterministic steps we consequently achieve results. Thus, an individual change in personal consciousness it’s the new model of MIT, defines innovation as a holistic, stochastic, multifactor relationship, to a minimum uncertainty value that you will have to face and deal with it like it or not, parting of "Do not know what you are looking for". In this sense, MIT's innovation process is based on the handling of uncertainty attacked with facts grounded in science,...

In this sense, MIT's innovation process is based on the handling of uncertainty attacked with facts grounded in science, physics or hard theories, but it connects them to an individual conscious state of “spark moments” that generates ideas that are subjected to iterative cycles of judgment in abstract market worlds and abstract worlds of technology, which determine unique implementation possibilities in new orders. Thank you!! Friend Andreas W

The content, instructor and provider - every segment was too good. It was an awesome learning. Making an innovation is a separate thing. But building the basic blocks of innovation keeping relation to market, technology and implementation with intense research, key constraints mapping, prospect building - these were quite new aspects of learning. Thanks all the faculties and stuffs to make this course a success. It would be great if I can implement the same in professional arena.
