Disruption Denial

We live in a world of constant change and disruption caused mainly by new technology. Yet, in business, there is widespread apathy, paralysis and confusion in many established companies in face of the obvious scope, scale, reach and pace of disruptive change. Why? Because Denial is the natural default response, given how executives’ brains function and how they are trained.
This important book examines why companies seem paralysed in the headlights of onrushing digital and other disruption. In analysing and understanding this tendency towards denial in companies, the author is then able to guide executives to begin seeing a new perspective to coping with the transformation challenge that faces them. Full of insightful case studies and lessons gained from the author’s work with leading companies, this is a hugely timely book when virtually all companies and executives must deal with the threat of disruptive change.

The Green Bubble

The fact is, we are hopelessly addicted to energy. It is the thin glue that holds our civilized world together and life without it would be unthinkable.

Per Wimmer, Owner of Wimmer Financial, Wimmer Family Office and WimmerSpace.com, is releasing his book The Green Bubble this November. The Green Bubble offers an analysis of the current financial bubble being created in the energy sector, by governments subsidizing renewable energy investment. He argues that these investments are not sustainable, and makes a case for investment in gas and, controversially, nuclear power.

Alongside the pressure to reduce greenhouse emissions, there is a challenge to find new, renewable energy sources. Many of the current ideas, Wimmer argues, are politically driven. The book also offers an engaging and intelligent analysis of the different energy issues that the world is facing, and how politics has led us in the wrong direction.

Brands and Rousers

How is it that some brands and companies manage to last decades, fending off crises and turbulence and continuing to prosper, while others fail? What does it take to achieve sustainable value and success? In this timely and important book, Luis Gallardo argues that executives and managers not only have to think holistically (in terms of strategy, structure and operations), but also act personally (to become “rousers”) if they are to succeed in these ever-changing times. As a manager, you have to engage and people, from top to bottom, and provide an understanding of the company’s mission and brand. As well as taking a broad, systems approach, you have to rouse (ignite and excite) the people in your organisation in order to make things happen. This balance between strategy and tactics, big picture and detail, planning and action, corporate direction and personal responsibility is the key to progress and resilience for your company in today’s turbulent times.
