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 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.

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.

Flawed but Willing

LEADING LARGE ORGANIzATIONS IN THE AGE OF CONNECTION
Author: Khurshed Dehnugara
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.

This book is a challenge to the way we relate to each other and lead businesses in the post-industrial age; it is full of passionate stories, reflections and insights. The writing inspires the practice of alternative forms of courage, acceptance of our imperfections and new methods of contact with each other as we navigate the changing nature of the workplace.
