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.

Dedication

In 2012, the Chinese company Huawei Technologies overtook Ericsson to become the world’s largest telecommunications equipment manufacturer, firmly establishing itself on the world business map. Today, it has over 170,000 employees worldwide and in 2014 the company generated a remarkable profit of $5.5 billion. Whilst research and development and the technology that results from it are core drivers of Huawei’s success, the company’s amazing growth is also determined by its human resource strategy. This is based on a “customer-first” attitude, the belief that obtaining opportunities is through hard work and, above all, “a dedication to do the best in anything we do”. How Huawei promotes this dedication amongst its workforce is the subject of this important book. Through original incentive systems, employee ownership and the mentality to act like a boss, Huawei has managed to create a culture of dedication that has become the bedrock of its growth today.

Wild Knowledge: Outthink the Revolution

Today, we live and do business in a world where society gathers knowledge faster than it gathers wisdom. It is a world of continuous revolution and change. Those who manage to find, structure and exploit the power of "Wild Knowledge" - ie, the untamed data, learnings and experiences that flourish in our lives and minds - will come out the winners. In combination, we need to develop our ability to understand and judge which aspects of that knowledge are applicable to business and life in general. This is the so-called "Vicious Wisdom" which will force you to unlearn, to choose an approach of unthinking, in order to reach a deeper understanding, meaning and reason in your quest to find new and different solutions. This book, written by a leading futurist/philosopher, presents a powerful and radical approach to thinking about and solving our future lives and businesses.

Business Alchemy

In this enlightening and engaging book, Andrew Wallas views the company from a metaphysical perspective to provide a new approach to transforming the organization. Business Alchemy focuses on the inner dynamics and energy flow within the organization itself, seeing where there is visible and hidden contradiction working against the aims of the company. It is by taking a deeper look inside of your company (instead of focusing on the outer machinations of your business), and by bringing these (often unconscious) blocks to light, that energy is released and the company is then free to move forward, fully aligned with its stated objectives and goals. This is a unique perspective on how companies can evolve and grow naturally and successfully.
