I received this book as a Gift during a session at the WISE Summit for Education in Doha, Qatar, by the author himself, and just managed to finally spare the time to read it. The session was about innovation in the workplace, and the book discusses the very same concept, and the idea is wittingly brought up in a very relatable manner, and not a strict and business like way. An intriguing and whimsical read, and must read for those interested in innovation

Honest and simple account of how to advance innovation in large organisations, filled with fun and relatable examples. A good read for anyone involved in or interested in innovation. It will spark you to want to act differently.

Compulsory read for those interested in innovation in larger organisations. Very good, informative, hands on advice and features some good story telling too. I especially like that is written without any corporate business jargong.
