Innovation Leadership Forum

Supporting Partner
The Innovation Leadership Forum (ILF) is a visionary and original Think & Do Tank
which works with senior management teams to instil the confidence to lead and innovate,
confidentially and responsibly, in the turbulent context of the 21st century. The
foundations on which all the ILF’s work builds are: a focus on people, a deep
understanding of specific context, a system-based approach, and a deep belief that all
innovation today has to have sustainability considerations at its core. The ILF was set up
by innovation philosopher, story teller and catalyst Dr Bettina von Stamm in 2004 who has
also created the Innovation Wave®, a tool for the facilitated assessment of innovation
capabilities, and is author of four books : ‘The Innovation Wave’ which is an introduction
to a holistic approach to innovation (Wiley, 2002), her textbook ‘Managing Innovation
Design & Creativity’ (2nd edition 2008), ‘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 Anna Trifilova (Gower 2009), and 'Innovation -
Embracing The Path of Change to Create Value', an overview of the evolution of leading
practice in the field of innovation and its management from 2000 to 2013 (Lulu, 2013).
