The Innovator’s Advantage guides you through the three ‘Ps’— Purpose, Pathway, and People—using a detailed, step-by-step description of the framework and methodology for innovation that incorporates a key element frequently missing in planning: an understanding of people. If your bottom line is still driven by original products or services, this book just might save your business.

Few inventions reach the market, and this book clearly lays out how to navigate this gap. The authors bring out the importance of generating many ideas to solve the problem and explain how to do it. Most innovators are not business people, and this book gives them the resources to successfully innovate.

The Innovator’s Advantage describes innovation from the perspective of both art and science. The authors blend the art of enabling human talent and skill sets for out-of-the-box thinking with the methodology and tools to convert innovative ideas into value.
