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.

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  “the  world’s  best  paid  human resource  director”.  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.

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. There is a growing awareness that the old industrial constructs of detailed planning, perfection and process are no longer working as effectively as we might wish in our large, established organizations.
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.

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.
