?McKnight?s work involves creating new businesses in the classroom andit is not a surprise to see a tool as effective as ?Innovators Scorecard? growfrom his teaching. The class could not proceed without a hard hitting upfront screen for all the ideas the students would bring into the room.?

?Professor Murray B. LowLang Center for Entrepreneurship, Columbia Business School

?This Scorecard is a great analytical tool. Had it been available a few yearsago, we could have saved ourselves about $5 billion.?

?Robert J. WusslerPresident and CEO, Ted Turner Pictures

?Over the boom and bust of the late 1990s and first couple of years of the21st century, it is clear that a tool such as McKnight?s ?Innovator?sScorecard? would have saved the country many billions of dollars in lossesand heartache. Every venture capitalist, lawyer, and accountant shouldrequire their new venture clients to score well before they commit theirvaluable resources.?
