The Innovation Leadership Forum (ILF) is a visionary and original Think & Do Tank dedicated to helping organisations understand and improve their innovation performance. It does so through a number of different avenues such as a series of MasterClasses, Advisory & Coaching Services, Workshops, Presentations, Public Speaking, and the Innovation Wave®, a tool for the facilitated assessment of innovation capabilities.
The ILF was set up by Dr Bettina von Stamm in 2004, allowing her to pursue her longstanding passion for understanding and enabling innovation, a field in which she has worked independently since 1992. In addition to the ILF activities, she enjoys teaching and writing. Her three books to date are, ‘The Innovation Wave’ which is an introduction to a holistic approach to innovation (Wiley, 2002), her textbook ‘Managing Innovation Design & Creativity’ (2nd edition 2008), and, most recently, ‘The Future of Innovation’, an inspirational compendium of over 220 views from 57 countries, knitted together through commentaries by Bettina and her friend and colleague Dr AnnaTrifilova (Gower 2009).
