Abstract: This extended abstract shows the importance of human intuition in the context of creating new knowledge. In particular, inspirational intuition plays an important role. In contrast to Daniel Kahneman's fast, intuitive and routine decision-making in terms of a System 1 (Kahneman 2011, pp. 19 ff.), inspirational intuition is shown to be a slow, incubational, and illuminative force. As a System 3, it forms an important core human capability to enable unprecedented knowledge with the help of original intuitions. The scientific paper shows the development of a questionnaire to quantify inspirational intuition. With the help of a principal component analysis, central influencing factors of intuitive competence are elaborated and made more accessible for companies. Inspirational intuition supports the controller in his new role as Change Agent and Crea Scout. The design of forward-looking innovation processes is becoming a decisive factor for success. Intuitive knowledge generation retains its unique significance, especially in the age of artificial intelligence.
