PRAISE FOR THE Innovator's TOOLKIT
"This book delivers the tools needed to unlock the creative potential of employees in any organization. It's the missing link between making an organization great at what it does today (operational efficiencies) and also successful at what it will do tomorrow (revenue growth). Get ready to re-examine core assumptions about how you run your business."
--JOHN BIEDRY, Global Director of Lean Enterprise, Nike
"This is not just a book to read and ponder. It's an enormously practical framework that my team and I use to execute day-to-day product management activities. I have become a Jobs to be Done evangelist!"
--GABI STRIJP, Executive Head of Business Mobility, Vodacom South Africa
"A business book that is also a practical guide! This book isn't about new concepts; it's about bringing innovation concepts together into one place and providing clear, concise, step-by-step mentoring. If you are serious about heading down the path of innovation, this book is a great reference."
--F. ROBERT SALERNO, President and Chief Operating Officer, Avis Budget Group, Inc.
"A definitive and one-of-a-kind work, this book packs more innovation know-how under its hood than any other resource available. Silverstein and his coauthors have successfully connected the scattered dots of organic growth into an unbelievably cohesive, elegant, and actionable framework."
