One of the most important, yet perhaps one of the most challenging aspects of the SRI Innovation Model as we are adapting it at JMU is the process of codifying benefits. It is critical for any innovation, whether it is a new program, service, or product or an improvement to an existing JMU concept, to be able to demonstrate constituent value in as concrete a way as possible. To help, the SRI Innovation Model includes the use of the Value Factor Analysis, a process and spreadsheet that provides an excellent resource for calculating and representing the comparative value of an innovative idea. If you have participated in JMU Innovation Training, you know that the VFA can be a very helpful, if somewhat complex tool. So, this two-hour workshop has been developed to focus exclusively on the VFA. You’ll get hands on experience using the VFA and understanding its elements from a JMU perspective. You’ll learn how to use it in support of any innovative idea, particularly if you are planning to make a presentation at the annual Innovation Conference. You must have completed the daylong Innovation Workshop to register for this training.
