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 ‚Äď 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.

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.

This book inspires us to work harder with our creativity ‚Äď both as ¬†individuals and companies.

In fact, all of us are capable of ¬†creativity ‚Äď 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 ‚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.

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.

WHAT DOES IT REALLY TAKE TO SUCCEED AND PERFORM AS A BUSINESS MANAGER AND LEADER?

Authors: John A. Dembitz
Jack ¬†Welch, ¬†the ¬†legendary ¬†CEO ¬†of ¬†General ¬†Electric, ¬†described ¬†himself ¬†as ¬†‚Äúthe ¬†world‚Äôs ¬†best ¬†paid ¬†human resource¬† director‚ÄĚ. ¬†Welch ¬†and ¬†other ¬†leaders ¬†of ¬†extraordinary ¬†successful ¬†companies over ¬†the ¬†past ¬†30 ¬†years¬† focused ¬†on ¬†one¬†¬† particular ¬†part ¬†of their ¬†business: the ¬†people.
 
Unlike  other  assets,  people  have  legs  that  enable  them  to  walk,  they  go  home  at  night,  they  have brains  that  enable   independent  thought,  senses  to  make  them  aware,  and  have  intangible  feeling s.  But  the  way  that  they  are  managed   impacts  directly  on  the  business’  bottom  line  like  no  other  asset  category.  This  book  is  a  firm  reminder  of  the  value  of   people  to any  organisation.  Great  managers  and  leaders,  at  whatever  level,  are  ones  capable  of  driving  performance   and  change  through  people.  This book  provides  essential  actions  and  behaviours  to  pursue  (and  those  to  avoid)  for  any   manager  who  is  seeking  the  path  to  great management  and  leadeship.

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.

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‚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.
