Quotes & Awards

  • Squirrel Inc. is a wonderfully refreshing look at leadership that contains countless insights on how stories create meaning and can inspire even cynical management to act.  This book is both provocative and evocative.  It’s central message kept resonating in my head for weeks after reading it.”

    John Seely Brown, former chief scientist, Xerox Corp; and director of its Palo Alto Research Center (PARC)

  • “It is hardly a nutty idea that narrative is a useful means of transferring knowledge from one human—or squirrel to another. Steve Denning’s wonderful story about stories is a unique way to tell a fundamental truth about how organizations improve their performance.”

    Thomas H. Davenport, President’s Distinguished Professor, Babson College and Accenture Fellow

  • “I’ve witnessed the power of narrative in my work and life, but I haven’t had the tools to effectively employ story when I’ve needed it most. Denning’s book provides the ‘how to’ for which I’ve been looking.”

    M. Gary Ryan, director, Brand Development and Strategy, People 

  • “Steve Denning is one of the most imaginative knowledge practitioners around, so it isn’t surprising that he’s produced a charming and illustrative fable about organizational life (among other things). Read it and grow wiser in the ways of squirrels and men!”

    Larry Prusak, coauthor, What’s the Big Idea and Working Knowledge
