The Future of Design

Innovating Global Products for a Complex World

By Lorraine Justice

  • Paperback
  • £14.99

A design guru illuminates 10 specific, global factors that directly affect product innovation and design and how you can use them to thrive

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 Art of Quiet Influence

Jocelyn Davis
Authors:
Jocelyn Davis

The Art of Quiet Influence shows anyone how to use influence, a key mindfulness principle, to get things done at work. Through the classic wisdom of 13 Eastern sages (especially the Buddha), relevant insights from influence research, and anecdotes and advice from 25 contemporary experts, Davis lays out a path for becoming a 'mainspring,' an unobtrusive yet powerful influencer. Organised around three core influence practices: Invite Participation, Share Power, and Aid Progress, readers will learn how to take mindfulness practice 'out of the gym and onto the field,' while gaining the confidence and practical know-how to be influential in whatever role they occupy.

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.

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.

Money

Rob Moore
Authors:
Rob Moore

Do you want to get to the stage - soon - where you are truly financially independent, able to use your money in the way you'd like, and be completely confident in your ability to take care of yourself and your family? That is a universal desire, but many of us regard wealth and financial independence as a goal which we'll likely never achieve - there are just too many bills that need paying and there is a widespread belief that the money game is rigged. Even people who win the lottery or inherit money often seem to wind up losing it. The evidence suggests you can't win a game that you don't understand - even if you start out winning - because you never understood the game in the first place.So how can you win with money? How can you create independent wealth and hold on to it? This inspiring book by self-made multi-millionaire Rob Moore explains the rules of the game, shares simple tricks for managing money better, details how to create a plan for an ambitious future, and shows you the very best way to become a millionaire - to think and behave like one!

Copywriting In A Week

Robert Ashton
Authors:
Robert Ashton

Great copywriting just got easierIt's strange to think that there was a time when only the privileged few could read or write. The rest of us relied on the spoken word. Storytelling was used to pass knowledge on from one generation to the next. Now, most of us are literate and use the written word to gather information and inform our decision making. Increasingly we do this online, with social media and messaging enabling rapid, spontaneous global communication. But rather than freeing us from the need for clear, effective written communication, it actually makes good communication even more important. The less we communicate face to face, the greater the opportunity for misunderstandings. Of course, all writing communicates your message to people you cannot see and may never meet. It means you can influence more widely; it also means you must take care not to make assumptions aboutyour reader, especially those who see your public postings. Successful copywriting is constructed from carefully selected words, each with a clear purpose. It is written to prompt feelings, thoughts or actions. It is clear, concise and at times comforting. It is also comprehensible, even to those not yet confident users of your language. Reading this book, and following the techniques it introduces, will make you a more effective writer. Expertise in grammar is not needed as all the necessary jargon is simply defined and, anyway, some forms of business writing deliberately ignorerules. This book is for people who want to write for results. Each of the seven chapters in Copywriting In A Week covers a different aspect:- Sunday: Focusing your message- Monday: Using layout, pictures and colour to make words memorable- Tuesday: Writing effective letters- Wednesday: Making advertising work for you- Thursday: Communicating clearly with the media- Friday: Preparing promotional print- Saturday: Composing proposals and presentation visuals
