'I don’t like innovation for the sake of innovation. I like to see the best and latest technologies embraced by users because they make a real difference. Whether that’s measured by improvements in safety, usability or profit – it doesn't matter – as long as it’s measured. When we can measure what innovation delivers, then we can innovate with confidence.'
