--Scott Svenson, chairman, The Sienna Group and former president, Starbucks Europe

"This book's thoughtful focus provides today's conflicted managers with specific methods and tools to innovate with control. It is an antidote to the fast-moving information age of modern management that has failed, in many ways, to develop the structured thinking necessary to become effective leaders and operating executives. This is a clearly written contribution to modern management."
