Before the seminar, Prof. Yang (Professor, Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering) led us to walk around the campus. We saw some fresh graduates to take photos for celebration.
An activity was started in Activities Centre for student.
After visit the campus, we had lunch with many professors from the Department of Industrial and System Engineering, Chung Yuan Christian University.
During the lunch time, Dr. Chin introduce the Department of Systems Engineering & Engineering Management, City University of Hong Kong to all professors.
Then Dr. Chin shared his research on assessment methodologies (e.g. Evidential Reasoning Approval).
The seminar was started after professors sharing. Prof. Ling-Huey Su (蘇玲慧) (Professor and Chair, Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering) introduced Dr. KS Chin to the research students.
Dr. KS Chin's topic named "Managing Organizational Innovation". Firstly, he discussed the concept of Innovation such as "Innovation means something new. " and "If the idea seems new and different to the individual, it is an innovation." Then Dr. Chin used different innovative product such as iPad for discussion.
The following table showed that new concept and discovery was very low in percentage of the innovation distribution.
Innovation was separated into many types included Orgnizational, Management, Production, Process, Marketing and Service. Dr. Chin focused on Organization Innovation which was the development or adoption of an idea or behavior that was new to organization. There were two approaches. One was Managerial Approach and the other was Methodological Approach.
Then Dr. Chin introduced the Organization Innovation Management (OIM) model and using the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) based methodology to develop specific factor weightings.
The assessment of QIM was separated into 5 levels. If organization employed this assessment method, the basic line of organization innovation would be identified and then they could improve the low ranking key innovative factors first.
Dr. Chin also mentioned the OIM implementation roadmap which was step-by-step approach to assist organization for innovation management. Moreover, it employed Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle.
Prof. Su presented the department flag to Dr. Chin
We took a photo in front of Dr. Chin's poster.
Prof. Noriaki Kano was also invited on 18 May 2012 (Last Friday).
Then Prof. Su led us to visit their laboratories.
At the end, Dr. Chin and I took a photo in front of the banner named "Spirit of Industrial Engineering".
