Product Description

The growth and future of the luxury goods industry: a view from the top

Despite  the  recent  economic  crisis  experienced  globally,  the  luxury industry  has  continued  to  grow  through  a   combination  of  marketing, repositioning  and  targeting  new/emerging  markets.  This  book,  written by an  experienced   practitioner  in  the  sector,  examines  how  luxury  has grown  and  what  the  future  lies  for  it.
The  results  of  a recent  study  shows  that  brands  classed  as  luxury  enjoy greater  resistance  in  stagnant  markets  and  are actually  growing  in emerging  markets  (such  as  China  and  India).  This  book  examines  the distinguishing  features  of  a luxury  brand  and  the  positioning  strategies of  leading  companies.  It  looks  at  the  implications  of  environmental issues and  how  luxury  companies  are  cleverly  incorporating  that  into  their  brands.  The  book  provides  important  management and  marketing  lessons  for  companies  from  all  sectors.

The Environmental Capitalist Quick View

The Environmental Capitalist

Making billions by saving the planet

Authors: Carl Hall

As fi ve billion people turn middle class, the world is entering an unprecedented age of scarcity. We’ve already seen it in the form of rising prices for raw materials and land. But this is just the beginning; soon our economies will be constrained by shortages in water and other raw materials, not to mention the increasing threat of global warming.

In a remote corner of the earth, a few small nations have been preparing for this resource scarcity. A movement that started in the Nordic region, and now spreading globally. A new breed of entrepreneurs – the Environmental Capitalists – are creating the solutions desperately needed to save a shrinking planet. And they are doing it with the system that is often seen as the cause of the problems we face today – capitalism. They have turned their backs on corporate social responsibility, sustainability and traditional environmentalism, seeing them as ineff ective, hypocritical and uninspiring. Instead, they have come to realize that capitalism is the only tool that can deliver solutions on the scale we need.

This inspiring book by self-confessed environmental capitalist Carl Hall presents fi ve principles on how to win in the coming age of scarcity. It provides entrepreneurs, companies, investors and policy-makers with specifi c examples and ideas on how to help save the planet and generate profi ts at the same time.

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.

Masters of Innvovation

Building the Perpetually Innovative Company

Authors: Kai Engel, Violetka Dirlea, Stephen Dyer and Jochen Graff.

Masters of Innovation is the manual for creating a sustainable innovative organization – because innovation is not an art. It’s a capability. The past 15 years have brought a flood of how-to books about innovation, most of them stuffed with stories of startling eureka moments and charismatic leaders. These stories have little to teach business leaders their own innovation capability. But Masters of Innovation clearly and concisely explains how managers make innovation more than just a ‘breakthrough moment’.

This book offers the real experience of the world’s best Innovators. These are not just the hot ‘tech’ companies of the moment, but companies growing in traditional sectors—automotive, train travel, household appliances—where slow growth would be expected. Many have been in business for generations, and still they grow. Being innovative is a repeatable process that can be studied and learned, one that will sustain a company’s profitable growth for decades.

New! My Steam Engine Is Broken Quick View

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.
