The creative curve : how to develop the right idea, at the right time

xii, 270 pages : illustrations ; 25 cm

"Big data entrepreneur Allen Gannett overturns the mythology around creative genius, and reveals the science and secrets behind achieving breakout commercial success in any field. We have been spoon-fed the notion that creativity is the province of genius -- of those favored, brilliant few whose moments of insight arrive in unpredictable flashes of divine inspiration. And if we are not a genius, we might as well pack it in and give up. Either we have that gift, or we don't. But Allen shows that simply isn't true. Recent research has shown that there is a predictable science behind achieving commercial success in any creative endeavor, from writing a popular novel to starting up a successful company to creating an effective marketing campaign. As the world's most creative people have discovered, we are enticed by the novel and the familiar. By understanding the mechanics of what Gannett calls "the creative curve" - the point of optimal tension between the novel and the familiar - everyone can better engineer mainstream success. In a thoroughly entertaining book that describes the stories and insights of everyone from the Broadway team behind Dear Evan Hansen, to the founder of Reddit, from the Chief Content Officer of Netflix to Michelin star chefs, Gannett reveals the four laws of creative success and identifies the common patterns behind their achievement"-- Provided by publisher.

Frenemies : the epic disruption of the ad business (and everything else)

June 11, 2018
Auletta, Ken, author.
New York : Penguin Press, [2018]
358 pages ; 24 cm
The "perfect storm" -- "Change sucks" -- Good-bye, Don Draper -- The matchmaker -- Anxious clients -- "Same height as Napoleon" -- Frenemies -- The rise of media agencies -- The privacy time bomb -- The consumer as frenemy -- Can old media be new? -- More frenemies -- Marketing yak-yaks and mounting fear -- The client jury reaches its verdict -- Cannes takes center stage -- Mad men to math men -- Dinosaurs or cockroaches? -- Good-bye old advertising axioms -- "No rearview mirror."
"An intimate and profound reckoning with the epic changes assaulting the global advertising and marketing business--the lifeblood of media as we know it--from the author of five national bestsellers. Advertising and marketing touches on every corner of our lives, and is the invisible fuel powering almost all media. Complain about it though we might, and should, without it much of media and business would shrivel. The disruption has been late in coming, but just as it struck the music, newspaper, magazine, and book businesses, today advertising and marketing are under assault. Good-bye, Don Draper. A Mad Men world has turned into a Math Men (and women--though too few) world, as engineers seek to transform an instinctual art into a science. The old lions and their kingdoms reel from fear, however bravely they might roar. [This book] is Ken Auletta's reckoning with an industry under existential assault. He enters the rooms of the ad world's most important players, some of them business partners, some adversaries, many 'frenemies,' a term whose ubiquitous use in this industry reveals the level of anxiety, as former allies become competitors, and accusations of kickbacks and corruption swirl. We meet the old guard, including Sir Martin Sorrell, the legendary head of WPP, the world's largest ad agency holding company; while others play nice with Facebook and Google, he rants, critics say Lear-like, out on the heath. There is Irwin Gotlieb, maestro of GroupM, the most powerful media agency, but like all media agencies, it is staring into the headlights as ad buying is more and more done by machines and algorithms. We see the world from the vantage of its new stars, like Carolyn Everson, Facebook's head of sales. We visit other brash and scrappy creatives who are driving change, as millennials and others who disdain ads as an interruption employ technology to zap them, becoming advertising and marketing's most potent frenemies. We also peer into the future, looking at what is replacing traditional advertising. And throughout WC follow the industry's Dolly Levi, its peerless matchmaker, Michael Kassan, whose MediaLink company connects all these players together as he serves as the industry's foremost power broker. Frenemies is essential reading, not simply because of what it says about this world, but because of the potential consequences: to the survival of media that depends on the money generated by advertising and marketing; to free television that would not be free without ads; to companies that would perish without a way to tell consumers of their products or sales; and to consumers who would be blind to new products."

Alive at work : the neuroscience of helping your people love what they do

May 24, 2018
Cable, Daniel M. (Daniel Merle), author.
Boston, Massachusetts : Harvard Business Review Press, [2018]
viii, 203 pages : illustrations ; 25 cm
Part I. The seeking system: Introduction: our organizations are letting us down -- The way things ought to be -- The way things are -- and how to make them better -- Part II. Self expression: Encouraging people to bring their best selves to work -- Promoting self-expression -- Part III. Experimentation: Encouraging serious play -- Expanding on freedom and creativity -- Humble leadership and employees' seeking systems -- Part IV. Purpose: Helping employees see the impact of their work -- Creating narratives about purpose.
We've all seen the oft-cited Gallup poll that reports that an alarming majority of the workforce is disengaged and unmotivated. In Alive at Work, social psychologist Dan Cable argues that the reason for all the unhappiness is biological: organizations, in an effort to routinize work and establish clear-cut performance metrics, are suppressing what neuroscientists call our Seeking Systems, the part of our brain that craves exploration and learning. The good news is that organizations can activate our Seeking Systems, and, as Cable explains, it doesn't take extensive overhauls to their cultures to do so. With small changes, managers and supervisors can make meaningful impacts on our lives and restore our zest for work. For instance, the book reveals: how new hires exhibited their best traits and were less likely to quit in the future after sharing stories about themselves during on-boarding seminars, how Italian factory workers reduced their anxiety about a new process by playing with Legos, how employees at Make-A-Wish reduced burnout by crafting their own job titles. Filled with real-life examples from the author's own research and consulting, Alive at Work equips managers--and anyone looking to find more joy in their nine-to-five existence--with the guidance to maximize the curiosity and passion that lives within themselves and others.-- Provided by publisher.

Measure what matters : how Google, Bono, and the Gates Foundation rock the world with OKRs

May 21, 2018
Doerr, John E., author.
New York, New York : Portfolio/Penguin, [2018]
xiii, 306 pages : illustrations, ; 22 cm
Part 1. OKRs in action. Google, meet OKRs -- The father of OKRs -- Operation crush: An Intel story -- Superpower #1: Focus and commit to priorities -- Focus: The Remind story -- Commit: The Nuna story -- Superpower #2: Align and connect for teamwork -- Align: The MyFitnessPal story -- Connect : the Intuit story -- Superpower #3: Track for accountability -- Track : the Gates Foundation story -- Superpower #4: stretch for amazing -- Stretch: the Google Chrome story -- Stretch: the YouTube story -- Part 2.

Continuous performance management : OKRs and CFRs -- Ditching annual performance reviews: the Adobe story -- Baking better every day: the Zume Pizza story -- Culture -- Culture change : the Lumeris story -- Culture change : Bono's ONE campaign story -- The goals to come.
In the fall of 1999, John Doerr met with the founders of a start-up whom he'd just given $12.5 million, the biggest investment of his career. Larry Page and Sergey Brin had amazing technology, entrepreneurial energy, and sky-high ambitions, but no real business plan. For Google to change the world (or even to survive), Page and Brin had to learn how to make tough choices on priorities while keeping their team on track. They'd have to know when to pull the plug on losing propositions, to fail fast. And they needed timely, relevant data to track their progress, to measure what mattered. Doerr taught them about a proven approach to operating excellence: Objectives and Key Results. He had first discovered OKRs in the 1970s as an engineer at Intel, where the legendary Andy Grove drove the best-run company Doerr had ever seen. Later, as a venture capitalist, Doerr shared Grove's brainchild with more than fifty companies. Wherever the process was faithfully practiced, it worked. In this goal-setting system, objectives define what we seek to achieve; key results are how those top-priority goals will be attained with specific, measurable actions within a set time frame. Everyone's goals, from entry level to CEO, are transparent to the entire organization. The benefits are profound. OKRs surface an organization's most important work. They focus effort and foster coordination. They keep employees on track. They link objectives across silos to unify and strengthen the entire company. Along the way, OKRs enhance workplace satisfaction and boost retention. Doerr shares a broad range of first-person, behind-the-scenes case studies, with narrators including Bono and Bill Gates, to demonstrate the focus, agility, and explosive growth that OKRs have spurred at so many great organizations, helping a new generation of leaders capture the same magic.

This continuous upheaval can undercut morale, decrease productivity and decimate profits, or it can be a game-changing opportunity. Arussy illuminates the path to opportunity. He helps corporate leaders and their employees view change as an opportunity to become invested, drive that change, and achieve more success and job satisfaction than if change were simply implemented from the top down."-- Amazon.

Leadership expert Sally Helgesen and bestselling leadership coach Marshall Goldsmith have trained thousands of high achievers--men and women--to reach even greater heights. Again and again, they see that women face specific and different roadblocks from men as they advance in the workplace. In fact, the very habits that helped women early in their careers can hinder them as they move up. Simply put, what got you here won't get you there ... and you might not even realize your blind spots until it's too late. Are you great with the details? To rise, you need to do less and delegate more. Are you a team player? To advance, you need to take credit as easily as you share it. Are you a star networker? Leaders know a network is no good unless you know how to use it. Sally and Marshall identify the 12 habits that hold women back as they seek to advance, showing them why what worked for them in the past might actually be sabotaging their future success. Building on Marshall's classic best seller What Got You Here Won't Get You There, their new book How women rise is essential reading for any woman who is ready to advance to the next level.
