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.

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.

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 – because innovation is not an art. It’s 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 ‘breakthrough moment’.

This book offers the real experience of the world’s best Innovators. These are not just the hot ‘tech’ companies of the moment, but companies growing in traditional sectors—automotive, train travel, household appliances—where 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’s profitable growth for decades.

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’s 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.

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.
