For innovation to occur and succeed, it needs all parts of its anatomy to work in harmony as with the body, thebrain controls the thought process to bring forth ideas; it also controls the nerve system to make parts move andput such ideas to action; it enables the eyes to see what the rest of the members are doing and hence work in harmony while the heart produces the blood flow necessary to either walk, run or sprint to produce the desired outcome.
The author eloquently draws on the analogy and presents a fascinating discussion on the main partsof a successful innovation system. The book is written with many audiences in mind including students enrolled in entrepreneurship and innovation programs, administrators at higher education institutions; government S&Tdepartments; business people; and most of all entrepreneurs and economic development personnel. Each chapter ends with a set of questions to spur classroom and group discussions.
