    by Blake Masters & Peter Thiel

    WHAT VALUABLE COMPANY IS NOBODY BUILDING?The next Bill Gates will not build an operating system. The next Larry Page or Sergey Brin won t make a search engine. If you are copying these guys, you aren t learning from them. It s easier to copy a model than to make something new: doing what we already know how to do takes the world from 1 to n, adding more of something familiar. Every new creation goes from 0 to 1. This book is about how to get there. Peter Thiel has built multiple breakthrough companies, and Zero to One shows how. ELON MUSK, CEO of SpaceX and Tesla This book delivers completely new and refreshing ideas on how to create value in the world. MARK ZUCKERBERG, CEO of Facebook When a risk taker writes a book, read it. In the case of Peter Thiel, read it twice. Or, to be safe, three times. This is a classic.

    £10.99

    Der er stort fokus på iværksætteri i dag, og iværksættere bliver ofte omtalt som redningsplanke for et kriseramt Danmark. Samtidig findes der masser af stærke fordomme om iværksættere, og der fortælles mange historier om, hvad der kendetegner en RIGTIG iværksætter - både med en barsk ´røven på kogepladen´-retorik og med en virkelighedsfjern, lyserød beskrivelse af ´passiv indtægt´. Det kan være svært at identificere sig med den slags historier og rollemodeller, og derfor kan det virke vanskeligt og farligt at blive iværksætter.Forfatterne ønsker at nuancere disse fordomme, og det gør de ved at dele deres egne erfaringer som selvstændige gennem mange år, samt erfaringer fra en række meget forskellige iværksættere. Med Iværksætterhåndbogen som arbejdsredskab er det muligt at gå fra potentiel iværksætter til rent faktisk at stifte egen virksomhed.Forfattere:Hanne Wick (kommunikations- og iværksætterrådgiver) og Dorthe Klyvø (tekstforfatter, oversætter og bogredaktør).Links til relevante websites og værktøjer, samt skabeloner til download findes på bogens hjemmeside.

  • - How Design Thinking Transforms Organizations and Inspires Innovation
    by Tim Brown
    £16.49

    The subject of ?design thinking? is the rage at business schools, throughout corporations, and increasingly in the popular press?due in large part to the work of IDEO, a leading design firm, and its celebrated CEO, Tim Brown, who uses this book to show how the techniques and strategies of design belong at every level of business.The myth of innovation is that brilliant ideas leap fully formed from the minds of geniuses. The reality is that most innovations come from a process of rigorous examination through which great ideas are identified and developed before being realized as new offerings and capabilities. Change by Design explains design thinking, the collaborative process by which the designer's sensibilities and methods are employed to match people's needs, not only with what is technically feasible, but what is viable to the bottom line. Design thinking converts need into demand. It's a human-centered approach to problem solving that helps people and organizations become more innovative and more creative. Introduced a decade ago, the concept of design thinking remains popular at business schools, throughout corporations, and increasingly in the popular press?due in large part to work of IDEO, the undisputed world leading strategy, innovation, and design firm headed by Tim Brown. As he makes clear in this visionary guide?now updated with addition material, including new case studies, and a new introduction?design thinking is not just applicable to so-called creative industries or people who work in the design field. It's a methodology that has been used by organizations such as Kaiser Permanente, to increase the quality of patient care by re-examining the ways that their nurses manage shift change, or Kraft, to rethink supply chain management. Change by Design is not a book by designers for designers; it is a book for creative leaders seeking to infuse design thinking into every level of an organization, product, or service to drive new alternatives for business and society.
