Dr.YKK ( Yew Kam Keong PhD)
Chief Mind Unzipper & Business Innovation Speaker
Dr.YKK helps organisations to innovate for fast results with minimum uncertainty using the least time, effort and resources. The process works well for both private companies as well as the public sector.
Why strive for original innovation when unoriginal innovation wins hands down every time!
In fact, this is the untold secret of the world’s most successful and profitable companies such as Apple, Samsung, Google, Facebook, Haier and the list goes on and on. Isn’t it time you do the same?
After more than 10 years of study of innovation practices of multinational corporations and SMEs, Dr.YKK created the revolutionary 5-Step Dolphin Wave Innovation Process to fast-track innovation on demand in a systematic way, frequently with measurable results. It was developed by extracting the most practical philosophy and features of the world’s best innovation systems, putting a structure to it, then combining it with proven online and offline innovation tools. The process adopts Sir Isaac Newton’s (the greatest scientist who ever lived) fundamental philosophy of seeing further by standing on the shoulders of giants.
His clients who adopted this approach, achieved outstanding growth and profitability. An example is Antec Engineering of Australia (see homepage). Please refer to Endorsements.
