[E100 Alert] Future of Innovation - (July 2009)  
    Dear E100:

E100 Bettina von Stamm (UK) and Anna Trifilova (Russia) release their new website at the 2009 conference for the International Society for Professional Innovation Management (ISPIM) in Vienna.
  Indeed a picture IS worth a thousand words; and this is no exception. The above was created from the Kaleidoscope E100 Alert abstracts submitted by E100 contributions to the new book – The Future of Innovation.
  Take a look at the ISPIM Programme for a wealth of timely perspectives, including those presented by other E100, such as Ron Dvir (Israel) , Mark Turrell (USA), Verna Allee (USA), Karl-Erik Sveiby (Finland) and Oliver Schwabe (Germany).
  You can now find the website http://thefutureofinnovation.org/ - where all the contributions have been posted, including 40 from the E100 representing 26 countries. Each 500-word perspective is a treasure; and I’ve hot-linked them below for your perusal.

    Please take the time to scan some contributions and realize how valuable you might be to one another. In some instances, you support the views of one another. In other cases, you provide counterpoints. In either case, we know the potential for future dialogue.

You might want to visit the Future of Innovation website to see all the other contributions from other experts and innovation communities. In fact, you can do searches where you might find surprising alignment!

    And all of this prepares us for some upcoming events, not the least of which is the ISPIM Symposium planned for 6-9 December, 2009, in New York City. Some of you may want to submit abstract for sessions yourselves. Hope to see you there…and stay tuned for more details. Mark your calendars now…

In the meantime, I hope these collective words provide some innovation inspiration amidst what has been a difficult economic time. I am told two things that do make me hopeful: (1) the future belongs to those able to convert crisis to opportunity; and (2) however deep the recession, the upturn recovery is projected to come thereafter…and be strong. Let us be prepared…

    Always in your Network,
