Innovation Is A Journey
On The Path To Wisdom

Innovation doesn’t happen ‘out of the blue’. It is an evolving process that requires learning, challenging existing knowledge, and understanding something new. Ultimately, innovation leads to change and to creating new wisdom.

More often than not, innovation occurs by connecting previously unconnected bodies of knowledge. At the same time, it is important not to rely too heavily on current knowledge which can blind us to concepts and possibilities we don’t yet understand. These two things are not really contradictions. In order to create the new, we might have to let go of our existing knowledge and beliefs.

Dr. Bettina von Stamm created the Innovation Leadership Forum to catalyze the innovative spirit and action in large organisations. You’ll also find many useful tools, resources and activities, as well as consultative support that is helpful to senior level executives.
Through Membership in the ILF Networking Group, senior-level executives have the opportunity to share existing knowledge on innovation, and to create and activate new knowledge.


"The Innovation Leadership forum is an excellent networking community for sharing ideas about innovation best practise. Marks and Spencer have found membership highly beneficial, stimulating and importantly enjoyable! The extended network of non competing businesses has been invaluable in helping shape innovation strategy and continues to provide stimulus for challenging the business status quo"

- Simon Colbeck, Head of Technology, Marks & Spencer
