On May 6th 2015, iKnow-Who and Arthur D. Little announced their new partnership during an Extreme Innovation event held at the Turning Torso in Malmö, Sweden. The event, which hosted more than 35 practitioners in Extreme Innovation, provided a guided tour through Breakthrough Factory achievements and exemplified how iKnow-Who and Arthur D. Little have supported large corporations to solve grand challenges that have been seemingly impossible to solve. The event keynote speaker, Rob Kirschbaum VP Open Innovation at DSM, shared his experiences on building a world class Breakthrough Innovation Capability at DSM and why and how they used Arthur D. Little and iKnow-Who to support and build their breakthrough innovation capabilities. Solving grand challenges and creating breakthroughs is not an easy task – the practitioners in extreme innovation shared their insights on challenges and learnings from their Breakthrough Innovations. “Start with a dream and focus on a grand challenge” – Rob Kirschbaum – VP Open Innovation at DSM “Organizations aiming for Breakthrough Innovation need a strong leader with a vision and a team that shares that vision” “Breakthroughs happen when extraordinary people come together to solve extraordinary challenges by connecting” Does your company have a grand challenge you cannot solve in isolation? Join The Breakthrough Factory with Arthur D. Little and iKnow-Who! Next Breakthrough Factory event is held evening 7th October 2015 in Stockholm.
