When compared to other heavy-breathing introductory tomes, this book is a refreshing and delightful introduction to innovation management. – Anup Nair, University of Strathclyde, UK

This book provides a novel and very interesting approach to innovation management. It offers readers a perspective which is both multi-layered (in the sense that it offers footholds for innovation managers as well as innovation actors) and integrated (in the sense that the book addresses most of the core elements not in isolation, but connected to the processual dimension of innovation). All of this is not in abstracto, but enriched and illustrated by lots of short cases and examples and stretches from the very early strategic and search phases to the conclusion of the innovation activities. – Frido Smulders, Delft University of Technology, Netherlands
