Format: Paperback
I had the good fortune to meet Mr. Gupta and hear him speak. His ideas are incredibly relevant and necessary in today's business climate and I know for a fact this book has made me a better professional. His techniques for coming up with innovative ideas are unique and effective.
Understanding that being innovative is not something your simply born with - and that it can be taught - needs to be on the mind of all managers and executives. This book will improve your business and could be the muse to your next big idea.

I enjoyed reading this book by Praveen Gupta. I saw Mr. Gupta speak in Seattle in June, and purchased his book following that event. I think there are some profound truths here, and Mr. Gupta's stories are insightful and interesting. At times, the writing style becomes repetitive, but I would recommend the Innovation Solution to those seeking the illusive "key to innovation' in today's business.
