Graham Jones has come up with a great book with some fascinating insights that explode some of the myths around sales, sales management and sales strategy. It is right for its time. Most "sales training" consists of training people how to sell rather than explaining how and why the other person is likely to buy. This book is long overdue and will be an essential guide as we all lead our sales teams towards 2020. — Phil Jesson, Academy for Chief Executives
What a great read. Some sad facts about the old-school approach to telemarketing with some really great advice. Well worth the read. An insightful look at the world of sales. — Anthony Stears, The Telephone Assassin
As a sales specialist I'm impressed by the amount of detailed research which supports the information in each chapter. Very different from most sales books which rely on the author's experience or opinions. Also, the volumes mentioned at the end of each chapter are extremely helpful and again quite different from other sales books. — Andrew Docker, Andrew Docker Associates

The Future of Design

Lorraine Justice
Authors:
Lorraine Justice

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, The Future of Design will answer these important questions and provide a robust framework for activating innovative thinking that goes beyond Western approaches to creativity and innovation.

Cracking Complexity

David Komlos, David Benjamin
Authors:
David Komlos, David Benjamin

How organizations can rapidly, practically, effectively and repeatedly deal with complexity. Solving complex issues in days.The revolutionary process at the heart of Cracking Complexity is backed by empirical research from the authors' work with world-leading companies whose experiences will serve as case-studies. Komlos and Benjamin's approach harnesses disparate views from inside and outside of an organization, including front-line employees, former competitors, theorists and disruptors around a big, messy problem to form a high-functioning team of people, a "mega-brain," that can see every side of a problem and identify the best solution(s) for it. Complex issues are solved in a matter of days, not months, not years, a time-frame supported by the authors' research and practice over three decades.(c)2019 Hodder & Stoughton Limited

Reinventing Capitalism in the Age of Big Data

Viktor Mayer-Schonberger, Thomas Ramge
Authors:
Viktor Mayer-Schonberger, Thomas Ramge

Markets have long been acknowledged to be a superior mechanism for managing resources but until the advent of big data, they largely functioned better in theory than in practice. Now, as ideal markets are within reach because of vastly greater access to information, we are on the verge of a major disruption. As data becomes a more valuable asset than cash, the rules for surviving and thriving are changing.Reinventing Capitalism is a provocative look at how data is reinventing markets and, in so doing, is ushering in an era where the firm is no longer predominant. With richer and more comprehensive information about human wants and needs, an economy powered by data offers the possibility of increased abundance, equality, and resilience. The data-driven markets that will thrive in this environment are far better than firms at organizing human endeavors, meaning that finance driven capitalism is being displaced by its more efficient, moresustainable, and more democratic disruptor: data capitalism.

Leadership At Scale

Claudio Feser, Michael Rennie, Nicolai Chen Nielsen
Authors:
Claudio Feser, Michael Rennie, Nicolai Chen Nielsen

Traditional approaches to leadership development focus on a small number of individuals at the top. However, in today's world of constant change and decentralized decision-making, organizations need effective leaders at all levels of their organizations. That requires a much broader and deeper pool of leadership talent, and most organizations fall far short of what they need.Leadership at Scale defines a new approach. In it, top experts at McKinsey, the world's number one leadership factory, expose the secrets of how to drive leadership development that reaches the entire organization, adapts to diverse contexts and achieves impact at scale. Grounded in extensive research and the global experience of +25 leadership experts and illustrated with a fictional step-by-step case with numerous real-life examples, this book provides leaders with the systematic and fact-based approach they need to unlock organizational performance through leadership effectiveness.
