The mental substructure of innovation
The internet revolution has shrunk the world and made markets much more transparent.

Under these circumstances companies are forced to critically review the key success factors of their business model. And what most of them realize is that innovation potential is a factor ranking very high on their list.
In his speech, Yolaçaner lays out the mental substructure of innovation and presents fresh ideas for optimally using personal and collective innovative capacity.
