Praise for Conquering Innovation Fatigue

"Conquering Innovation Fatigue is like no other innovation book you have ever read. The ideas are new, amazingly fresh, and practical. I will ask all my clients to read this book because, like me, I believe they also want to get to the future first. The authors know what they are talking about. They have recreated their unique innovation knowledge, experience, and insight into a practical 21st-century guide that will take you on a remarkable journey. This is a book that is desperately needed in the industry."
Dr. Kobus Neethling, President, South African Creativity Foundation, and bestselling author of more than 80 books

"Conquering Innovation Fatigue provides practical advice and fresh perspective on overcoming barriers to successful innovation. Understanding the nine major fatigue factors and applying the energizing factors in this book should help corporations improve the return on their innovation investments."
Beth Springer, Executive Vice President, The Clorox Company

"Innovation is hard, exhausting work. Lindsay, Perkins, and Karanjikar understand this, and have identified a number of ways to overcome innovation fatigue. This book will help innovators develop the staying power they must have to get their innovations all the way from inception into the market."
Henry Chesbrough, Adjunct Professor and Executive Director, Center for Open Innovation at the Haas School of Business at University of California, Berkeley

"Essential reading for those with ideas that deserve to go to market. This book was written by experienced travelers of the difficult roads going from concept to commercial reality. It teaches us how to anticipate and avoid roadblocks and detours, guiding the way to personal and corporate success."
E.J. (Woody) Rice, retired, former president, Institute of Paper Science and Technology, and former group vice president, Hercules, Inc.

"A must for any CEO who wants to drive change and introduce winning technology."
Robert van der Merwe, Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer, Checkpoint Systems, Inc.

"I enjoyed this book! It provides a compendium of stories about the diverse set of individuals who must collaborate to make innovation successful. Some tales are uplifting, some discouraging, some challenging—but all are enlightening. Inventors, innovation managers, business leaders, and policymakers can each gain deeper insight into their role in making innovation happen."
Dr. Miles P. Drake, Senior Vice President, R&D, and Chief Technology Officer, Weyerhaeuser Company
