Why did I write this book?
Through the experience acquired with large corporations and working with many startups, I could understand the strengths and weaknesses of these two worlds, and also the gaps that currently exist with both types of organization to innovate and create new business. It became clear to me that the front-end and the back-end of innovation were often disconnected or had severe weaknesses that would prevent startups and corporations from effectively searching for new business and, when deciding to go forward with an opportunity, to execute it successfully. This realization prompted me to write this book and share my understanding, experience, and knowledge with the innovation and business community at large. This book will benefit innovators, entrepreneurs, founders, managers, and executives who are trying to break through innovation barriers by avoiding common mistakes and getting answers about practical challenges.Continue reading
One of the many benefits of travel is it gives you the opportunity to explore the amazing variety of cultures around the world. The thrills, adventures, and experiences that traveling offers make the long or short hours on the plane worth it.
Singapore is one of the many countries around the world that is known for its high-tech infrastructure, rapid development, and economy. Hence, it is not surprising to see lots of people around the world wanting to either travel, work, invest or retire in this country.
In this post, we will give you a quick guide to traveling, living, working, investing, and retiring in Singapore.
Home Options in Singapore
Unlike many countries, most people in Singapore live in condos. This is not degrading in any way as this is the norm in here; especially if you are looking to rent a home in the inner city. If you go for new apartments, there is a huge chance that you will also have access to playgrounds, function rooms, pools, and gyms there. You may have to move out to the suburbs to rent a single home though; and keep in mind that these homes do not have gardens — and in most cases, they even don’t have backyards.Continue reading

The door was opened to improvement where process is no longer a four letter word. I would love to work with you again sometime.
This book unabashedly puts forward a new, unambiguous, non-shrinking, and ultimately empowering view of what we all as project managers should commit to be and do every day in our project roles.
I plan to recommend attending Kimberly’s presentation to everyone I know as one of the best project management presentations I have ever attended. It gives project managers the kick in the butt call-to-action they need.
Not a day goes by here when I don’t use something I learned in the “Leading From Any Seat in the Org” class that you taught here last year. In fact, the manager of one of the folks who went through the class last year said his employee was transformed by the experience.
I wanted to let you know that what I imbibed from you during the course has been of IMMENSE help to me and that I’ve put it all to good use. I started my own company and have been running it successfully for the last one year or so, introducing a totally new service concept to the challenging markets in India.

The way Kimberly helped the students experience the frustration of an “unsolvable” problem and then helped them experience how such problems are solved was brilliant. Kimberly’s approach is so lively and fun that even while you are gratified by her terrif… Read more
