Imaginal’s Ecosystem is designed to support the innovation process by the capture, refinement, dissemination and transfer of knowledge.
Knowledge fuels the innovation process, but not all knowledge is the same. One can research existing knowledge from many different sources, but all you have is the knowledge that has already been created, it is from the past. The Imaginal Thinking process is not only fuelled by what is already known, but by new knowledge that needs to be created.
The Imaginal Knowledge Creation model is comprised of four levels, with the first level being signal research. The next three levels are the creation of new knowledge that fuels the entire innovation process.
