What People are saying about this

Muhammad Yunus
"We are in the Era of Innovation, brought about by tectonic shifts in the global marketplace and by the staggering needs of millions of the world's people. In his usual fashion, Faisal Hoque presents this highly readable and thought-provoking book to take us on an international tour of the corporations, governments and social enterprises like our Grameen that are organizing in new ways to transform the 21st Century. By marrying the power of technology and business, there is very little we can't accomplish. Sustained Innovation shows where and how this is happening and inspires us to join in this new era."--(Professor Muhammad Yunus Founder of Grameen Bank Father of Microcredit Nobel Peace Prize Laureate 2006)
Sujeet Kumar
"Using the BTM Framework, the authors have explained how organizational structures and processes can be aligned with systems and technology to generate and harness sustained innovation. This type of sustained innovation is sine qua non for sustained success. Sustained Innovation is highly recommended to everyone: whether you're involved as a social entrepreneur, a promoter of new products, a manager guiding the innovation process or an investor evaluating an innovative company, there's gold here for you."--(Sujeet Kumar, Global Leadership Fellow, World Economic Forum)
Leslie Willcocks
"An insightful, well written book on innovation. The authors have done well to capture stories of innovation across the board-from the Fortune 500 to social enterprises. The book is rich in ideas that highlight how to leverage technology to create sustainability in business or in doing good."--(Dr. Leslie Willcocks, Professor of Technology, Work and Globalization, London School of Economics)
Prabhu Guptara
"My research indicates that, in all sectors, companies still find it incredibly difficult to link strategy with technology. No wonder they don't innovate continually. Faisal Hoque's new book, Sustained Innovation, shows why this is so and, in a highly readable way, indicates critical steps being taken by today's successful leaders to innovate by bringing business and technology together."--(Professor Prabhu Guptara, Executive Director, Organizational Development, Wolfsberg - A subsidiary of UBS AG)
Paul Judge
"Sustained Innovation provides an intellectual framework which skillfully pulls together dozens of examples of innovation from around the world, ranging from the design of healthcare management systems to the microcredit project of Professor Yunus in Bangladesh, the recent winner of the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize."--(Sir Paul Judge, Vice Chairman, American Management Association, Chairman of the Royal Society of Arts and of Schroder Income Growth Fund plc.)
