Poise your business for success by learning more about the art of innovation at the Hudson Library & Historical Society with Dr. R. Ray Gehani, Associate Professor in the Department of Management at the University of Akron. Managing and leading innovation is a primary engine of survival and growth for enterprises in our highly competitive global economies. Yet many entrepreneurs often understand innovation selectively and consider it a challenging and elusive art. Based on Dr. Gehani’s multi-decade experience and a multi-disciplinary study of innovation, this interactive session will first precisely define innovation collectively, and then discuss the basic skill-set needed to nurture and nourish the different phases of management of innovation in an enterprise. Real-life case studies will illustrate the process.

Dr. R. Ray Gehani is the Founder-Director of Graduate Programs in Management of Technology and Innovation (renamed Global Technology Innovation) at the University of Akron since 1998. Dr. Gehani holds a Doctorate in Engineering in Polymer Engineering Science from the Tokyo Institute of Technology and PhD in business from the City University of New York. Dr. Gehani has over a decade of experience in the global tire industry. Recently in October 2014, Dr. Gehani was invited as a keynote speaker to speak on building innovators by the American Chemical Society Rubber Division at their international conference held in Nashville, Tennessee.

This workshop is part of the Hudson Library & Historical’s MBA-Lite mini-series of more advanced programs for the small business community. Registrants who attend all four sessions in the mini-series will earn a certificate after completion.
