Praise for The Open Innovation Revolution

"A must–read for companies who are either starting their open innovation journey or who want to sharpen their open innovation approach. Stefan explains in very clear terms the challenges and opportunities that company leaders and their intrapreneurs will face."
Chris Thoen, Managing Director, Global Connect + Develop Office, Procter & Gamble

It′s packed with usable advice and great stories that Stefan has collected from his work across a variety of industries. Whether you are building a new program or enhancing an existing effort, this book offers practical insights and actionable steps that can maximize your program′s success."
Jeff Bellairs, Senior Director, Connected Innovation, General Mills

"Every innovation leader that wants to incorporate or advance open innovation should read this book. Stefan not only puts open innovation in simple, practical, and executable terms, but also inspires those in charge by providing tools to design strategies geared to success at a corporate and even individual level, something I didn′t expect and that makes this a unique publication."
Moises Norena, Director, Global Innovation, Whirlpool Corporation

"Open innovation may one day be as natural as breathing, but remains a constant struggle for most corporations today. Lindegaard has given us an insightful overview of practical concepts that can be put to use today, and thus begin to grow a capability central to the future of any corporation."
Russ Conser, Manager GameChanger, Royal Dutch Shell

"If you want ′open,′ look no further. Stefan′s open and (sometimes brutally) honest account of open innovation is refreshing. There is no theory or fluff. You only get practical advice for making open innovation a reality in your organization. Let the revolution begin."
