Meet Dr Bettina von Stamm
I am hugely passionate about understanding and enabling innovation, particularly in large organisations. To follow this passion I have set up the Innovation Leadership Forum (ILF). The five legs I stand on are teaching, researching, running a networking group, writing, and public speaking. I also very much enjoy the role of a ‘catalyst’ in large organisations to speed-up the creation of innovative organisations.
In terms of academic background, I have a first degree in architecture and town planning and an MBA as well as a PhD from London Business School. In addition to articles (I am better writing ‘on demand’ than I am writing prospectively...) I have published two books, one for general managers and those who want to start on their ‘understanding innovation’ journey: The Innovation Wave (2002) and a text book: Managing Innovation Design & Creativity, 2008, 2nd ed. I am rather tickled that the textbook is available in simplified Chinese, and shortly also in Arabic.
Meet Dr Anna Trifilova
I am particularly interested in understanding innovation and its management in the global context. My areas of research interest are international technology collaboration, Russian R&D organisations on the global innovation arena, managing for global innovations. My areas of occupational focus are teaching, researching, editing, and writing.
As major part of my writing, I published two books on The Analysis of Innovation Development (2005) and The Management of Innovation Development (2003) both published by Finance & Statistics Publishing, Moscow. I am the head of the management and marketing department at Nizhny Novgorod Architecture and Civil Engineering State University. Also, I have a section “International Kaleidoscope” in the Russian journal Innovations.
My general agenda includes lectures, research, papers, conferences, students, English and Russian writing, guest editing – and I am happy to do all I am doing.
