The innovation rules have been explored, tested, refined and improved for decades in SRI International, and their effectiveness has been well proved in the past. Our team has shared the innovation rules in the US, France, the UK, Finland, Japan, Malaysia, China, etc. and has received favorable feedback. A raft of organizations participated in and benefited from our innovation mode, such as BBC, NTT (the then No. 1 telecom company in the world), Industrial Technology Research Institute of Taiwan, and Chinese Academy of Sciences Chengdu Branch.”
