Creating a successful global product is complex. Why do some products survive or become reinvented? What makes a product loved by some and despised by others? What key issues were present when some of the most notable inventions and product designs occurred? Through interviews with successful product designers and inventors from around the world, and case studies of products from their local inception to their global success, Innovation by Design will answer these important questions and provide a robust framework for activating innovative thinking that goes beyond Western approaches to creativity and innovation.

The Club

Jonathan Clegg, Joshua Robinson
Authors:
Jonathan Clegg, Joshua Robinson

This is a sports and business tale of how money, ambition, and 25 years of uncommon drama re-made an ancient institution into a 21st century entertainment empire. No-one knew it when their experiment began, but with luck, brazen confidence and good timing, a motley cast of billionaires, chancers and chairmen struck Premier League gold.Soon, everyone was attracted to the gold rush, from Russian oligarchs, to Emirati sheikhs, American tycoons and Asian Tiger titans. Some succeeded beyond their wildest dreams. Some lost everything. But the cash they flowed into English soccer lured players, agents and managers from around the world, turning ageing industrial cities and a selection of fortunate clubs into the focus of a compulsive global attention.Today, as players are sold for hundreds of millions, clubs are valued in the billions, and games are beamed out to nearly 200 countries, all while the league struggles to preserve its 'English' identity and traditions.Deeply researched and drawing on dozens of exclusive interviews with the key power-brokers at every major team - from the aristocrats of Manchester United and Arsenal, to the new money of Chelsea and Manchester City - The Club is the definitive and wildly entertaining narrative of how the Premier League product took over the world.
