Case studies in innovation: What enables outstanding achievements?

As promised, I have posted my observations from the 2009 Kyoto Prize. I had an opportunity to interact with each of the laureates, and focused on the question of how they were able to accomplish their exemplary achievements. It is not enough to simply be brilliant or hard-working — all their peers likely share these characteristics. What are the differentiating factors that enabled their unique achievements?

My observations appear in the latest issue of the Journal of Commercial Biotechnology, and are available for viewing without subscription.
