"Bridging the Innovation Gap is a highly recommended read for those leaders who are willing to embark on a major rethink of their innovation philosophy and process. The book has the merit of highlighting the most frequently-found traps companies experience, both in the structure of their process and - more importantly - in their innovation staffing. It addresses these problems convincingly without embarking on unnecessary theoretical considerations. The book, which is well structured and systematic in its coverage of the process, is rooted on years of hands-on experience of its authors, and that makes it very credible. In short, it is a very useful and pragmatic handbook."
