"The Innovator's Advantage takes an ambitious path to link innovation with the talents and passions of employees. I highly recommend this book to any leader looking to maximize the right skill sets for the different phases of the innovation process." -- --Hal Whiting, PhD, Program Manager, Executive Coaching and Assessment, Hewlett Packard Enterprise
"The Innovator's Advantage guides you through the three 'Ps'--Purpose, Pathway, and People--using a detailed, step-by-step description of the framework and methodology for innovation that incorporates a key element frequently missing in planning: an understanding of people. If your bottom line is still driven by original products or services, this book just might save your business." -- --Dr. Ronald J. Bonnstetter, Senior VP of Research and Development, Target Training International Success Insights
"Few inventions reach the market, and this book clearly lays out how to navigate this gap. The authors bring out the importance of generating many ideas to solve the problem and explain how to do it. Most innovators are not business people, and this book gives them the resources to successfully innovate." ---- Prof. Lucy W. Irungu, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research, Production, and Extension), University of Nairobi, Nairobi, Kenya
