The History

The original International Institute for Innovation was born out of work from several key individuals at the Banff Centre  in 1989-90, which had a vision to teach and develop the 21st century skills needed to think creatively and ‘out of the box’. It spun out of Banff Centre as the Innovation Expedition, headed by Dr. Don Simpson as its ‘Chief Explorer’. Today we are recreating the original International Institute for Innovation as ‘3i’, (as part of the Innovation Expedition Inc.) to foster a network of collaboration, cooperation and innovation globally and support personal and organizational learning.

The 3i is a virtual Institute which uses the Collaborative Media Group’s proprietary collaboration platform Core Community.  This powerful and intuitive platform is purpose built for communities of practice, mentoring, coaching and learning. It will be a powerful place to engage, share and challenge.
