What's Hot in Innovation Leaders?

Why join ILN?

IRI has made a great impact on both my career and the companies where I have worked. My involvement with the Innovation Leaders Network has given me access to leaders in innovation methods and tools, best practices at leading companies, and discussions with peers who have overcome similar challenges in other organizations. This type of real-world, practical learning from others in the field is invaluable. The ability to discuss challenges with a range of fellow practitioners, share ideas, and discuss potential hurdles reduces the learning curve for implementing new tools for both you and your organization.
