Finally a book that looks at all dimensions of innovation
True Innovation exists in various forms, but a true visionary innovator dives deep into territories of the unknown identifying white space opportunities in-order to emerge with wildly innovative ideas or concepts which change the world. Collin's clearly understands this and the need to find the visionary innovator within one’s own-self as a key starting point in building a successful hub of innovation.
