Product Description

Organisations that disturb the status quo

Challenger organisations are those companies which are disrupting their market and taking serious market share from their more dominant competitors. Such companies typically have an ambition beyond the conventional resources available to them. They are innovative and radical, and most enjoy significant and sustained periods of growth.

This book analyses the practices and disciplines that underpin the successful Challenger organisation. In particular it looks at how Challenger leadership and culture can be developed in large, complex, established organisations.

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‚Äôs¬†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.

Not Knowing

The art of turning uncertainty into opportunity

Authors: Steven D’Souza and Diana Renner

In order to thrive in worrying times, this fascinating book proposes we head, uncomfortably, towards the unknown, rather than away from it. By developing a unique relationship with Not Knowing we discover a new way of living, working and succeeding in our modern world.

This book re-frames the concept of Not Knowing, from being in a fearful place of weakness and ignorance, moving to something we must engage with personally. It introduces us to a new paradigm, where Not Knowing becomes an exciting opportunity, where we are no longer limited by what we already know and our habitual reactions tothings that life throws at us, so that deeper knowing can emerge, full of  rich possibilities and wisdom.

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.

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 ‚Äď because innovation is not an art. It‚Äôs 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 ‚Äėbreakthrough moment‚Äô.

This book offers the real experience of the world‚Äôs best Innovators. These are not just the hot ‚Äėtech‚Äô companies of the moment, but companies growing in traditional sectors‚ÄĒautomotive, train travel, household appliances‚ÄĒwhere 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‚Äôs profitable growth for decades.

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.

This book contains wonderful stories from Scandinavia of people ¬†from different backgrounds ‚Äď opera, architecture, science, art, ¬†drugs, sport, toys, film, technology ‚Äď 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.
