Idea Couture helps businesses drive revenue growth and loyalty through strategic innovation

London, 29 November 2013: Idea Couture, a global specialist strategic innovation consultancy is marking the expansion of its London presence with the publication of a book “Design Thinking for Strategic Innovation” by Idris Mootee, the company’s global CEO.
