Doug Hall

Doug Hall was at P&G when he achieved a record number of innovations shipped in a short period of time with a tiny staff and budget (9 products in 12 months with a  team of 3).  He did this by using a systems approach because of his knowledge of the work of Dr. W. Edwards Deming, the inspiration for Lean, Total Quality and Six Sigma.

Doug left P&G and founded Eureka! Ranch and started helping large companies like Nike, American Express, and Disney create big, disruptive ideas, which it continues to do today through Innovation Engineering.

Innovation Engineering® includes 48 skills or competencies for creating, communicating, and commercializing meaningfully unique ideas and system driven leadership skills that help innovation leaders implement the system company-wide.  It teaches people to create disruptive ideas like we do (not guru, it’s a system), but also teaches them what to do next – all the way to market/implementation.

Today the Ranch helps organizations in 3 ways: 1) building their innovation pipeline, 2) improving their innovation process, and 3) training their people to think more innovatively. FMI: https://eurekaranch.com/about-us/

Hall utilized his system and love of whiskey when he co-founded Brain Brew in January of 2016. After only 18 months, Brain Brew received two of eight Double Gold Medals at the North American Bourbon & Whiskey competition. Built on the grounds of the Eureka! Ranch just east of Cincinnati (Newtown, OH), Brain Brew produces over 1 million cases a year and offers a variety of bourbons and unique on-site experiences.
