Lavinia Thanapathy, President, PrimeTime Business & Professional Women’s Association

“One important aspect where this book differs from others written on innovation, is that it brings together the different stages of the innovation journey (process) with the different mindsets (people) that are required at each stage if we are to succeed.  Structured around her Six ‘I’s® Model – which readers are invited to complete – the book is full of tips, tools and further reading. It should indeed convince everyone that they can indeed contribute to innovation.”

“If innovation is key to your strategy, read “Yes, You can Innovate!” It not only provides a single model for innovation management but shows how important people are to be generating and making new ideas happen and gives practical ideas for how to engage them in the innovation process. An insightful read that will complement any organisation’s programme for growth.”

Danny Wootton, MOD – Head of Innovation, ISS, Ministry of Defence

“One of the aspects that separates this book from others is the inclusion of an assessment tool which is very useful for putting together or evaluating current teams embarking on a journey of innovation through the six steps of the Model.  If you deal with any kind of business development or innovation this is a book that is worth reading and using.”

Michael Meyer, Director of People & Communications, Asia LEO Pharma
