'This is an impressive book by any standards and I for one have very much appreciated that Harris has chosen to share his methodologies...I have read the book three times, such is the level of richness and guidance provided, and each time I pick it up I get new insights. I strongly recommend Building Innovative Teams.' 

- Robin Campbell, Journal of Management Development.

'Chris Harris's new book fills an important gap in the library of creativity and innovation. Some books focus on the individual, and provide guidance on how individuals can enhance their personal, creative skills; others focus on the organisation, and relate how you have to get the reward structure, role models, the resource allocation system and all the rest in harmony with the corporate goal of innovation. Building Innovative Teams looks at that oh-so-important and practical middle ground - how groups of individuals can be moulded into high performing teams, with innovation as their key agenda. Written in a highly readable, pacy style, Building Innovative Teams offers great insights into something we all strive to do, and provides much pragmatic advice as to how to do it.'
