Greg Stevens

is President of WinOvationsSM, Inc., founded in 1995 and specializing in the early stages of new business development (NBD). Prior to this he worked 21 years in The Dow Chemical Company, where he helped successfully launch Insite metallocene polyolefin catalyst technology and was Innovations Manager in Corporate Ventures. He received his MBA from Central Michigan University, and BA in Chemistry and Biology from Albion College, summa cum laude.

He has taught corporate courses, spoken and published extensively on NBD in the Journal of Product Innovations and Management (JPIM), Visions, Research Technology Management, the PDMA (Product Development and Management Association) International Research Proceedings, the Great Lakes Chapter of the PDMA/SAE International, The Project Management Institute, The American Creativity Association, The Journal of the Adhesive and Sealant Council, the Chemical Management and Resources Association, the Commercial Development and Marketing Association, the Industrial Research Institute, the European Chemical Market Research Association, and at the Technology Transfer and Innovation (TTI) Conference in Melbourne, Australia. WinOvations 1999 article in JPIM was selected as the “Outstanding Research Paper” by the PDMA, and his universal success curve for NBD has been published in The Economist.

His July 2003 article published in Visions - in conjunction with Central Michigan University and Dow Chemical - describes how one R&D group in Dow was able to quickly make its culture more innovative and effective. They quadrupled both speed to market, and the percentage of sales-from-new-products-less-than-five-years-old. They created over 12 major new product lines within their portfolio, adding over $3 billion in value. They were selected as the “Outstanding Corporate Innovator” by the PDMA in October 2003.

Greg Stevens was recently chosen as “Entrepreneur of the Year” by the College of Business Administration at Central Michigan University.
