Product Description

LEADING LARGE ORGANIZATIONS IN THE AGE OF CONNECTION
Instability, disturbance, emergence, networks, informal learning, trial, error, adaptability, low growth, fluctuation and momentum – these are the experiences that are increasingly dominating the lives of today’s business leaders and managers. There is a growing awareness that the old ways and constructs (driven by planning, accountability, perfection, size, profit) no longer work as effectively as we need.
Flawed by Willing represents a manifesto for leading organizations in the post-industrial age.
Author Khurshed Dehnugara argues that managers who want to survive – and perhaps even succeed – need to adopt a completely different mindset and set of habits, as well as learn new ways to relate to and lead people. Managers in the post-industrial age will be nervous and anxious, but the book provides inspiration to accept failure and imperfection as the way to navigate the changing nature of business and organizations.
Written with passion and insight, and containing honest and real cases, the Flawed but Willing makes a case for courage, authenticity and resilience as the key attributes of tomorrow’s manager.
It is an inspirational book that dares to address the fears and concerns of today’s business managers and leaders.

My Steam Engine is Broken

Taking the organization from the industrial era to the age of ideas

Authors: Dr Mark Powell and Jonathan Gifford My Steam Engine is Broken calls on a fresh generation of organizational leaders to stop trying to fix a broken and outmoded structure, and to create new, successful working structures that work with, not against, people’s natural modes of behaviour. The authors explore the way in which the Steam Engine organizational model is no longer offering job satisfaction to its members precisely (and paradoxically) because members are not being enabled, and are often being prevented, from delivering what the organization most needs from them: self-direction, innovation, leadership and heartfelt commitment.

The Creative Society

HOW THE FUTURE CAN BE WON

Author: Lars Tvede

Human creativity has been one of the fundamental drivers of civilization and progress – solving immense problems, creating opportunities and overcoming enemies like no other force. Often it has baffled its skeptics by finding new and better resources, unexpected environmental technologies and genuinely amazing products that no one had predicted.

However, like so many before it, Western civilization is now suffering from serious internal decay with its bloated public sectors, punitive taxes, over-regulation, marginalized citizens, stagnation, debt, unemployment and pessimism.

The Content Revolution

Communicate what you stand for by telling a better story

Author: Mark Masters Marketing has changed more in the past 20 years than any other business discipline. So why are we relying on the same-old textbooks? Why do business owners still think that shouting louder than the competition is the answer to longevity? The old marketing way, where we were encouraged to spend more on advertising and to be seen, is dead. Marketing was about interrupting the masses, but times have changed. The only differentiator we have, as businesses, are the stories we tell.

In the Shower with Picasso Quick View

In The Shower With Picasso

The art of turning uncertainty into opportunity The legendary artist Pablo Picasso took baths when he was in  need of new ideas for his work. Other people take walks in the  park or visit an art gallery or watch Youtube – in an attempt to  spark their creativity and imagination. This book inspires us to work harder with our creativity – both as  individuals and companies. Being creative is now critical in our  careers, but most people regard creativity as somewhat mystical,  slippery and a rare entity. In fact, all of us are capable of  creativity – if that is what we want. Often, it is about having the  right mindset and finding the right spark to set off your creativity. This book contains wonderful stories from Scandinavia of people  from different backgrounds – opera, architecture, science, art,  drugs, sport, toys, film, technology – and how they find and use  their creativity. Scandinavians are one of the most creative  groups of people in the world, and as such, this book represents  the Scandinavian way to creativity.
