Embry-Riddle Worldwide Launches New Management Program

i2i Program Includes Fourms, Leadership Award

Embry-Riddle recently announced the launch of a new program designed to stimulate collaborative innovation across the aviation and aerospace industry. Officials say the i2i Program offers a new and different way for firms to systematically share innovative solutions to common problems in the industry.

The i2i Program consists of three integrated parts. The first part includes a series of i2i Forums, small professionally facilitated meetings of industry professionals that convene periodically to share best practices and innovative solutions in areas predefined by the participants. Six to eight i2i Forums will be held in a variety of locations each year.

The second part of the program involves the i2i Leadership Award. The purpose of this award is to recognize leaders in management innovation. Nominations will be solicited once a year, and winners will be selected by a panel of industry experts. Each winner, in turn, will be invited to participate in the third step of the process, the i2i Annual Roundtable.

The i2i Annual Roundtable provides a platform for the winners of the i2i Leadership Award to present their stories to a broader audience. This event is also used to present a summary of key findings from the i2i Forums throughout the year.

Benefits of the i2i Program include in-depth peer-to-peer exchange of explicit and tacit knowledge in a professionally facilitated small group setting; feedback from peers, when requested, on a participant's own business practices; international visibility for the winners of the i2i Leadership Award; and access to Embry-Riddle Worldwide's i2i knowledge database.

"We are always looking for innovative ways to improve our operations and look forward to participating in the program," said Robbie Griggs of Joint Strike Fighter Global Sustainment Operations at Lockheed Martin.
