Yeah, it was the random Accepted who got stuffed into the position of Amyrlin by the rebels. Her name is Egwene al'Vere.

Edited to add:

In defense of the AS: the Shadow was actively working to discourage them from making any progress.
That was a major reason for the Trolloc Wars: to shatter all cohesion and do away with the attempts to return to the Age of Legends.

And it is quite possible that the Black Ajah has been working to prevent any innovation too. It would be relatively simple and totally in character for them: kill any innovative AS in such a way that it seems to be a result of her experiments, and eventually the AS will conclude that experimentation is dangerous. Plus, as a bonus those innovative AS will stop innovating, once they're dead.
