"The 6 ‘I’s of Innovation® is a simple yet powerful framework for planning, executing and delivering innovation in any organisation. Natalie's book is an essential companion on an innovator's bookshelf!" Charlie Ang, Founding President, The Innovators Institute and Ambassador, SingularityU, Singapore
“Natalie Turner, whose journey I have observed with great interest and admiration for over a decade, has written a remarkable book which is offering a path through the jungle of innovating that is both easy to understand, and practical in its application. One important aspect where it differs from other innovation books 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”.
