What is KIN?
KIN is part of the IKON Research Unit based at WBS and connects peers, practitioners, researcher and experts, providing a non-competitive, sharing environment to help members improve their business practices.
KIN membership provides organisations with access to a range of activities and resources including workshops, special themed meetings, member-only online resources, and access to WBS research.
News and Events
The reason innovations fail is never about the technology - innovations fail because of people! Those people who might need to adopt a new idea, process or technology who may not be sold on it, might be afraid of it, or might feel threatened by the change as they do not have the skills or knowledge to be able to deal with it. These may be kinds of people who long for yesterday not tomorrow, people who will need support, guidance and reasons to change...
To reflect changing priorities and member focus, the title 'Knowledge and Innovation Network' is changing to 'The Innovation Network'. You may have already noticed subtle changes to the KIN Memberspace and in the topics being covered in our forthcoming calendar of events. The official change coincided with the KIN Spring Workshop on 22nd March 'Reimagining the Innovative Organisation' held at Warwick Business School's facilities at The Shard, London. All KIN Key Contacts were consulted throughout.
