“In the Success Magazine article How to Inspire Creativity in Your Business, Creative-thinking expert Michael Gelb comments, “Thomas Edison is the best example for those who wish to nurture the spirit of innovation in an organization.

“More than the light bulb, phonograph and motion picture camera, Edison’s greatest invention was the process of systematic innovation.

“He created the world’s first research and development laboratory and was the first to link R & D with production, manufacturing, marketing and sales.”

He continues, “In our book Innovate Like Edison: The Five-Step System for Breakthrough Business Success, Sarah Miller Caldicott (Thomas Edison’s great-grandniece) and I introduce five basic competencies for innovating like America’s greatest inventive genius. These competencies represent a blueprint for cultivating a spirit and culture of innovation.” ”
