In the summer of 2012, Texas Executive Education developed and introduced a new certificate series focused on delivering strategies that will enable business leaders to foster more innovative thinking within their teams and organizations. This Driving Business Innovation Certificate grew out of the challenges that companies face in being continually innovative, and therefore competitive, in today’s fast-moving business world.
One year later, in June 2013, we had the opportunity to celebrate our first Driving Business Innovation Certificate graduate. Congratulations to Trey Mebane of National Oilwell Varco! (pictured below) Trey was the first to successfully complete the series of programs that make up our Innovation certificate, and just one week later his NOV colleague Mike Francis became the second to complete the certificate. Congrats to both of you!
