Tell the Truth Honesty Is your Most Powerful Marketing Tool

DEFA CHO ULT ICE

Jonathan Baskin, Sue Unerman 256 pages April 2012 Truth in advertising has long been something to ignore, or at least downplay. The role of advertising has been to position and manipulate brands to convince consumers that they’re imbued with qualities they don’t necessarily possess, or presume to tell them which ones matter. It worked when the brand’s voice was the only voice, but with the rise of social media that era is over. Marketers have focused their messages on entertainment, creating funny or engaging campaigns that win awards but don’t always sell products. Consumers determine what’s true, and smart companies have realized that every communications medium can and will be used to contribute to those conclusions. In Tell the Truth, Jonathan Salem Baskin and Sue Unerman look at the content and context of marketing communications. They provide the research of hundreds of companies and in-depth case studies on more than 50 global brands to show us that truthful brands deliver sales, profits, and sustainable relationships. Truth yields true competitive advantage. Jonathan Salem Baskin leads Baskin Associates, Inc., a marketing decisions consultancy. He writes the award-winning blog, Dim Bulb, a daily post about 2,000 years of social behavior do’s and don’ts at Today in the Histories of Social Media, and is a regular columnist on CMO leadership for Advertising Age. Sue Unerman is Chief Strategy Officer of MediaCom. Amid the changing media landscape, she delivers a strategic edge in communications and strategic planning for clients, thereby ensuring MediaCom UK is a step ahead of the competition.

What Matters Now How to Win in a World of Relentless Change, Ferocious Competition, and Unstoppable Innovation

DEFA CHO ULT ICE

Gary Hamel 304 pages February 2012 This is not a book about one thing. It s not a 250–page dissertation on leadership, teams or motivation. Instead, it s an agenda for building organizations that can flourish in a world of diminished hopes, relentless change and ferocious competition. This is not a book about doing better. It s not a manual for people who want to tinker at the margins. Instead, it s an impassioned plea to reinvent management as we know it—to rethink the fundamental assumptions we have about capitalism, organizational life, and the meaning of work. Leaders today confront a world where the unprecedented is the norm. Wherever one looks, one sees the exceptional and the extraordinary: • Business newspapers decrying the state of capitalism. • Once–innovative companies struggling to save off senescence. • Next gen employees shunning blue chips for social start–ups. • Corporate miscreants getting pilloried in the blogosphere. • Entry barriers tumbling in what were once oligopolistic strongholds. • Hundred year–old business models being rendered irrelevant overnight. • Newbie organizations crowdsourcing their most creative work. • National governments lurching towards bankruptcy. • Investors angrily confronting greedy CEOs and complacent boards. • Newly omnipotent customers eagerly wielding their power. • Social media dramatically transforming the way human beings connect, learn and collaborate. Obviously, there are lots of things that matter now. But in a world of fractured certainties and battered trust, some things matter more than others. While the challenges facing organizations are limitless; leadership bandwidth isn t. That s why you have to be clear about what really matters now. What are the fundamental, make–or–break issues that will determine whether your organization thrives or dives in the years ahead? Hamel identifies five issues are that are paramount: values, innovation, adaptability, passion and ideology. In doing so he presents an essential agenda for leaders everywhere who are eager to...

Marketing Semiotics Signs, Strategies, and Brand Value Laura R. Oswald 232 pages February 2012 Everyday consumers buy into the concept of brands and their associated meanings - the perception of quality, a symbolic relationship, a vicarious experience, or even a sense of identity. Marketing Semiotics suggests that the extent to which consumers recognize, internalize, and relate to brand meanings is not only an academic question. These meanings contribute to ‘brand equity’, the financial value of intangible brand benefits that exceed the use value of goods, and impacts upon a firm’s financial performance. Therefore, the management of brand equity demands first and foremost the management of brand meanings, or semiotics. The book uses structural semiotics, a discipline that extends the laws of structural linguistics to the analysis of verbal, visual, and spatial sign systems, to shed light on the cultural codes and discourse of brands. It proposes that semiotic research should form the cornerstone of brand equity management, since brands rely so heavily on sign systems that contribute to profitability by distinguishing brands from simple commodities, from competitors, and engaging consumers in the brand world. The book includes dozens of global business cases where semiotics has been used to refocus, reposition, or extend the brand to new products, customers, and markets. Laura R. Oswald, Associate Professor of Advertising, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and Director, Marketing Semiotics Inc. She is founder and director of Marketing Semiotics Inc. Dr Oswald is an expert in the areas of brand strategy, consumer research, and semiotics - a social science discipline that examines brands and advertising in the framework of cultural signs and meanings. She conducts consumer studies in a variety of formats, including focus groups, in-depth interviews, and on-site ethnographies in North America, Europe, Singapore, and the People’s Republic of China.

Breakthrough Food Product Innovation Through Emotions Research

David Lundahl 256 pages January 2012 Brand owners are in crisis. Consumer trust is at an all time low. Over 95% of all consumer product launches in the packaged goods sector fail to achieve their goals for success. This book gives a clear answer to why success rates are so low in the consumer packaged good industry and lays out a roadmap for product innovation - to make ideas successful. This book will inspire the reader to make a paradigm shift in how they approach product innovation - to be driven by the science of consumer behavior. The basic premise for this book is that emotions are at the root of all consumer motivations. Therefore, an innovation process focused on identifying how to turn up or down emotions that drive behavior will lead to product success. The applications of this process will be presented with several product success stories that show that understanding consumer behavior leads to deeper emotive connectivity, a broader playing field for differentiation, and speed to market. Using case studies and real-world examples of product launch successes and failures, Breakthrough Food Product Innovation is a must-read for those involved in product development, consumer research, and marketing. David Lundahl is an expert in applying consumer and marketing research to product innovation and development; bridging the gap between brand and consumer through a behavior-driven approach to innovation. Trained as a statistician and food scientist, Lundahl is known for his statistical applications to product development. Yet, his passion for product development has led him down a unique path – providing innovation teams a diverse set of disciplines, from innovation process management to marketing research and behavior psychology.

Repeatability Build Enduring Businesses for a World of Constant Change Chris Zook, James Allen 288 pages March 2012 Is radical reinvention the key to winning in today’s fast-paced world? Not judging by the results of some of the world’s best-performing companies. In “Repeatability,” Chris Zook and James Allen--leaders of Bain & Company’s influential Strategy practice--warn that complexity is a silent killer of profitable growth. Successful companies endure by maintaining simplicity at their core. They don’t stray from, or regularly discard, their business model in pursuit of radical renovation. Instead, they build a “repeatable business model” that produces continuous improvement and allows them to rapidly adapt to change without succumbing to complexity. Based on a multiyear study of more than two hundred companies, the book stresses the value of repeatability in business, showing how the “big idea” today is really made up of a series of successful smaller ideas driven by a simple and repeatable business model. Zook and Allen show how some of the world’s best-known firms combine a core differentiation model with speed, adaptability, and simplicity to land them at the top for long periods of time. These firms include: Apple, Danaher, DaVita, IKEA, Nike, Olam, Tetra Pak, Vanguard, and others. CEOs, senior executives, managers, and investors all need to read this book. It’s the new blueprint for reaching the top--and staying there. Chris Zook is a partner at Bain & Company and co-head of Bain’s Strategy practice, where his work focuses on helping companies find their next wave of profitable growth. He is the author of the best-selling business books, Profit from the Core, Beyond the Core, and Unstoppable.

Myth, Magic & Marketing How to Heal Humanity and the Planet by Changing the Wayy We Sell

Walt Kuenstler 150 pages February 2012

BONUS BOOK FOR FREE IN THE EXECUTIVE UTIVE PROGRAMME In the Executive programme, every quarter we want to surprise our members with a philosophical view upon business and life. A point of reflection for the highly experienced business leader.

Myth, Magic & Marketing: An Irreverent History Of Branding From The Acropolis to the Apple Store, explores how modern brand gods such as Nike and Apple create fanatical devotion in their customers by appealing the the desire for magical solutions to life’s problems. Learn how marketing principles we take for granted actually first appeared at the dawn of mankind. With a wink, marketing veteran Kuenstler even suggests that branding actually made civilization itself possible. Ancient myths tell us that there are gods and spirits who can grant any wish we have. All you have to do is say the right prayer, or offer the right sacrifice, and your dreams will come true. Those long-ago gods now live inside today’s top brands. Venus, the goddess of love, now whispers Victoria’s Secret in our ear. Dionysus, the god of wine, now lifts his glass and says “This Bud’s for you.” Consumer behavior is governed by timeless archetypal patterns. While language and symbols evolve, the meanings and motivations behind the language remain constant. And shoppers become eager converts to whatever product offers the most enticing brand gospel. While science may have replaced the supernatural in our public conversation, ancient cravings for heavenly solutions still heat our blood-and our VISA cards. Even common advertising vocabulary carries its own myth and magic. For example, the word “logo” seems simple enough. Until you discover that it comes from a much, much older term, “Logos” that literally means “the word of god that brings order to the universe.” Which may explain why those logos for Nike and Coca Cola can carry so much power in the market and are universally recognized around the globe.

“Even common advertising vocabulary carries its own myth and magic
