  • - How Strategy Really Works
    by Roger L. Martin & A.G. Lafley

    Are you just playingor playing to win?Strategy is not complex. But it is hard. Its hard because it forces people and organizations to make specific choices about their futuresomething that doesnt happen in most companies.Now two of todays best-known business thinkers get to the heart of strategyexplaining what its for, how to think about it, why you need it, and how to get it done.

Now, drawn from their years of experience at P&G and the Rotman School of Management, where Martin is dean, this book shows how leaders in organizations of all sizes can guide everyday actions with larger strategic goals built around the clear, essential elements that determine business successwhere to play and how to win.The result is a playbook for winning. Lafley and Martin have created a set of five essential strategic choices that, when addressed in an integrated way, will move you ahead of your competitors. They are:• What is our winning aspiration?• Where will we play?• How will we win?• What capabilities must we have in place to win?• What management systems are required to support our choices?The stories of how P&G repeatedly won by applying this method to iconic brands such as Olay, Bounty, Gillette, Swiffer, and Febreze clearly illustrate how deciding on a strategic approachand then making the right choices to support itmakes the difference between just playing the game and actually winning.

  • by Cory Doctorow & Rebecca Giblin

    A FINANCIAL TIMES BOOK OF THE YEARA call to action for the creative class and labour movement to rally against the power of Big Tech and Big Media.Corporate concentration has breached the stratosphere, as have corporate profits. An ever-expanding constellation of industries are now monopolies (where sellers have excessive power over buyers) or monopsonies (where buyers hold the whip hand over sellers) ¿ or both.Scholar Rebecca Giblin and writer and activist Cory Doctorow argue we¿re in a new era of `chokepoint capitalism¿, with exploitative businesses creating insurmountable barriers to competition that enable them to capture value that should rightfully go to others. All workers are weakened by this, but the problem is especially well illustrated by the plight of creative workers.By analysing book publishing and news, live music and music streaming, screenwriting, radio, and more, Giblin and Doctorow deftly show how powerful corporations construct `anti-competitive flywheels¿ designed to lock in users and suppliers, make their markets hostile to new entrants, and then force workers and suppliers to accept unfairly low prices.In the book¿s second half, Giblin and Doctorow explain how to batter through those chokepoints, with tools ranging from transparency rights to collective action and ownership, radical interoperability, contract terminations, job guarantees, and minimum wages for creative work.Chokepoint Capitalism is a call to workers of all sectors to unite to help smash these chokepoints and take back the power and profit that¿s being heisted away ¿ before it¿s too late.

  • - 69 digitale muligheder du kan bruge i dag – og implementere i morgen.
    by Jacob Bøtter & Stine Mølgaard

    Virksomheder og organisationer misser de fleste digitale muligheder, som er lige foran dem, fordi de er fortabt i fremtiden og glemmer nutiden. De taler om kunstig intelligens og bitcoins, men overser de helt oplagte muligheder, der kan gøre gavn for dem i dag.Denne bog indeholder 69 eksempler på, hvordan det digitale kan gøre dit arbejde og din organisation endnu bedre. Alle eksempler i bogen kan tages i anvendelse med det samme og kræver oftest en ganske minimal investering. ”At blive udsat for Stines og Jacobs bombardement af gode ideer er en berusende påmindelse om glæden ved at mærke sin nysgerrighed. At mærke det boble.”– Stig Kirk Ørskov, adm. direktør for JP/Politiken “I bogen lægges op til at lade en del af udviklingen ske nedefra, sætte medarbejderne mere fri og lade dem iværksætte og eksperimentere med små digitale projekter drevet af motiva- tion og virkelyst. Kravet om digitale strategier og projekter, der iværksættes oppefra forsvinder ikke, men skal måske supple- res af flere små projekter der opstår, lanceres (shippes) og eksperimenteres med nedefra. Der er masser af inspiration at hente i bogen – god læselyst.”– Hanne Bak Lumholt, direktør for COK (Center for Offentlig Kompetenceudvikling) “Jeg møder ofte virksomhedsledere, som kan tale med om digitalisering og disruption. De ledere, som for alvor impone- rer mig, er dem, som har eksperimenteret med nye teknolo- gier eller på egen krop har testet nye måder at leve på.“– Tue Mantoni, bestyrelsesformand for Lakrids by Johan Bülow og Joe & The Juice, bestyrelsesmedlem for Vækstfonden og Soundboks og forhenværende adm. direktør for B&O og Triumph

  • by James Clear

    New York Times-bestseller, der har solgt over 1 mio. eks.Tilbyder redskaber og lette strategier til at ændre dårlige vanerJames Clear er en af verdens førende eksperter inden for opbygning af vaner, og han giver i denne bog praktiske strategier, der lærer dig nøjagtigt, hvordan man danner gode vaner, bryder med de dårlige og lærer at mestre de små ændringer, der fører til store resultater.Bogens hovedpointe er, at vaner bedst ændres i meget små skridt – ved at lede efter en lillebitte forbedring i alt, hvad man gør, i stedet for “alt eller intet”-løsninger. Efterhånden som handlingen gentages, vokser vanen sig stærkere og slår rod. Hver gang du gentager en vane, styrker du nemlig det neurale kredsløb, der associeres med denne vane, og derfor er gentagelse noget af det vigtigste i forhold til at automatisere vaner.Andre gode pointer fra bogen:Lav en implementeringsstrategi: Hvornår vil du præcis gøre hvad og hvor?Vi bliver ændret af den verden, der omgiver os: Man kan indrette sig til gode vaner (gem chokoladen! Sæt løbeskoene frem! Læg telefonen ind i et andet rum!)Fokuser på at skabe systemer. Fix dit input, og dit output løser sig selv: Formålet med at sætte mål er at vinde spillet – formålet med at opbygge systemer er at blive ved med at spille.Byg ovenpå allerede eksisterende vaner: 'Efter NUVÆRENDE VANE vil jeg NY VANE'James Clear er forfatter, oplægsholder og konsulent med fokus på vaner og udvikling. Hans arbejde har bl.a. kunnet ses i New York Times, Time Magazine og CBS’ This Morning. Hans hjemmeside, jamesclear.com, har hver måned millioner af besøg, og over 100.000 abonnerer på hans populære nyhedsbrev.Bogen udgives i samarbejde med WElearn A/S, og bogens forord er skrevet af Henrik Dresbøll, forfatter bag bogen Få det til at ske.

  • - Hvordan vi fik travlt med at lave ingenting
    by Dennis Nørmark & Anders Fogh Jensen
    £12.99 - 10.99

    For 100 år siden var alle overbeviste om, at vi i dag ville arbejde 15 timer om ugen. Det skete ikke. Og det var ikke, fordi effektiviseringerne udeblev. Vi arbejder sta­dig på livet løs. I denne bog begiver antropologen Dennis Nørmark og filosoffen Anders Fogh Jensen sig ud på en rejse for at finde ud af, hvad vi laver i vores arbejdstid. Det er blevet en rejse ind i det absurde, hvor meningen med arbejdet er forsvundet, og hvor løftet om fritid aldrig blev indløst. I ste­det fik vi flere regler, kontroller, møder og ligegyldige Power­Point-præsentationer.Bogens forfattere kommer fra hver sin politiske fløj, men bogen er ikke et møde på midten. Det er et opgør med en gammeldags måde at tænke arbejde på og et bud på, hvad enhver kan gøre som arbejdstager, leder, og hvad vi kan gøre som samfund. For det er på tide at tænke og handle anderledes, hvis ikke vi skal blive til grin overfor både vores fremtid og vores fortid og begå århundredets største dumhed. Men det kræver et opgør med et af vor tids største tabuer: Pseudoarbejdet.

  • - The Disciplined Pursuit of Less
    by Greg Mckeown
    £9.99 - 11.49

    Have you ever found yourself struggling with information overload? Have you ever felt both overworked and underutilised? Do you ever feel busy but not productive? If you answered yes to any of these, the way out is to become an Essentialist. In Essentialism, Greg McKeown, CEO of a Leadership and Strategy agency in Silicon Valley who has run courses at Apple, Google and Facebook, shows you how to achieve what he calls the disciplined pursuit of less. Being an Essentialist is about a disciplined way of thinking. It means challenging the core assumption of We can have it all and I have to do everything and replacing it with the pursuit of the right thing, in the right way, at the right time'.By applying a more selective criteria for what is essential, the pursuit of less allows us to regain control of our own choices so we can channel our time, energy and effort into making the highest possible contribution toward the goals and activities that matter. Using the experience and insight of working with the leaders of the most innovative companies and organisations in the world, McKeown shows you how to put Essentialism into practice in your own life, so you too can achieve something great.

  • by Brene Brown

    Brought to you by Penguin.In her latest book, five-time #1 New York Times bestselling author Dr Brene Brown, writes, "e;If we want to find the way back to ourselves and each other, we need language and the grounded confidence to both tell our stories, and to be stewards of the stories that we hear. This is the framework for meaningful connection."e;In Atlas of the Heart, Brown takes us on a journey through 87 of the emotions and experiences that define what it means to be human. As she maps the necessary skills and lays out an actionable framework for meaningful connection, she gives us the language and tools to access a universe of new choices and second chances - a universe where we can share and steward the stories of our bravest and most heart-breaking moments with one another in a way that builds connection.Over the past two decades, Brown's extensive research into the experiences that make us who we are has shaped the cultural conversation and helped define what it means to be courageous with our lives. Atlas of the Heart draws on this research, as well as Brown's singular skills as a researcher/storyteller, to lay out an invaluable, research-based framework that shows us that naming an experience doesn't give the experience more power, it gives us the power of understanding, meaning and choice.Brown shares, "e;I want this to be an atlas for all of us, because I believe that, with an adventurous heart and the right maps, we can travel anywhere and never fear losing ourselves. Even when we have no idea where we are."e;(c) Brene Brown 2021 (P) Penguin Audio 2021
