Innovation Pioneers is a network founded by innovation leaders and practitioners from consumer, industrial, service and digital industries, experienced in strategic, tactical and operational management of innovation. We have implemented structured innovation as well as managed successful launches of business critical innovations.
Initiated in 2008, the network’s primary annual events include Innovation in Action, the two-day action-oriented Innovation event now in its 6th year, and four single-topic Tank Meetings. The network also produces Innovation in Practice and other learning events as well as joint development projects, including the publication of “Book of Metrics” on measuring innovation.
The Network is lead by 18 Initiating companies that are elected to manage and drive the network. Selected individuals from these companies participate in the continuous development of the network, it’s actions and projects. A chairman is elected on a yearly basis, for 2015 it is Eva-Carin Banka Johnson of IKEA. Our active participants include corporate and individual members. These are in addition to collaborative partners that have included the Swedish innovation agency Vinnova and Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency.
