Editorial Reviews

Review

"The Innovation Biome is a must-read regardless of the stage of your career. Managers and leaders will gain new insights into methods and tools that unlock innovation in their organizations. Employees at every level will benefit from the wide range of inspiring success stories, and learn the elements necessary for achieving true breakthroughs."
John Connors, Board Director, Nike; Managing Partner, Ignition Ventures; Former CFO, Microsoft

"From Roger Bannister to the smallpox vaccine, Kumar Mehta will help you think deeply about innovation (and how you can find your breakthrough)."
Seth Godin, author of Linchpin: Are You Indispensable?

"An important book that lays out the foundational elements necessary for innovation and the steps required to making innovation a sustained activity for growth. A must-read for executives who want to build value through innovation."
Nirav Tolia, CEO, Nextdoor

"The Innovation Biome concisely and coherently brings together a number of key themes on the topic of innovation and delivers a practical framework that leaders can apply."
Bert Valdman, President and CEO, Optimum Energy

"When Kumar Mehta shared the ideas in this book with our team at HBS, it felt as if we were welcoming a new member to our group.  He intrigued us with his concept of 'the next big thing' and then hooked us with his guiding focus on customer experience, and the concept of the "experience delta."  Readers will sense his deep experience behind every page, as well as his deep passion to teach what he knows on this important subject."
Derek Van Bever, Director, Forum for Growth and Innovation, Harvard Business School

"This is a rare pearl in a sea of books about innovation. This book builds on the science of innovation to provide organizations an essential guide to cultivating an enduring innovation biome that leads to sustained value creation.
Jordan Usdan, Senior Director, Corporate Strategy & Development, Microsoft

"This is a very important book. There is no shortage of books, even very good ones, written on innovation, disruption and change written by business professors offering a prescription for success. Kumar Mehta's The Innovation Biome is so much more than that. It is written from the inside by a skilled innovator who has been an instrumental player at all levels of technology from major companies (Microsoft) to his own successful startups. It is filled with compelling examples and lessons that can only be learned by being in the middle of disruption, not by studying it. The reader immediately senses he is on a journey narrated by an expert in this confusing world of change. It will easily become a standard in business schools (and far more) replacing books written by those schools' own faculty."
Jeffrey Cole, PhD, Center for the Digital Future and Director of the World Internet Project, University of Southern California

"As a global impact investor, we look at innovation broadly, from healthcare to education to transportation. The Innovation Biome brings unique historical perspective on the full spectrum of innovation that goes far beyond the typical understanding of venture capitalists. Kumar Mehta succinctly lays out the building blocks required for innovation. He provides a pragmatic roadmap for CEOs who want to foster an innovation culture that continuously delivers inspiring offers for customers."
Will Poole, Cofounder and Managing Partner, Capria Ventures; former Senior Vice President, Windows Client Business, Microsoft

"The concept of an 'Innovation Biome' is in itself exciting and yet, at the same time, so logical, so intuitive, so obviously right that you wonder why it has not already entered the innovation lexicon. Corporations-and organizations in general-so often get in their own way, and nowhere more so than in pursuing the golden goose of innovation. Here is a primer for every CEO for how to get out of his or her own way and let loose the creative impulses that already exist at every level in their organization. Read and learn!"
Simon Chadwick, Managing Partner, Cambiar Consulting
