    28 Business Thinkers Who Changed the World is a guide to the people who have fundamentally reshaped their industries and the way we do business today. Some of these game changers are great intellectuals while others are 'gut instinct' types; some are motivated by desire to change the world, while others are driven by money and power. Rhymer Rigby profiles the top business brains of our time to reveal the humans behind the headlines and how they changed the global business landscape.

    i did like this fast , chapters after chapters book, with each chapter allocated to a business person, it is uplifting, and what i did like as well , it the way each chapter finish with a little negative view of the person review and some further review.
    I also do recommend it, it is a more light hearted business book, one i like for a change from the depth thinking one i read most of the time.

    The tilt (tilt): 1. The shift in business and economic power from countries of the north to the fast-developing markets and economies of the south - not only China, India and Brazil, but also the Middle East and parts of Africa. 2. The result of unstoppable forces, including the volatile global financial system, digitization, the rise of state capitalism and a new global middle class that is both youthful and urban- forces by which industries and economies rapidly emerge and change the global playing field.

    The authors draw on over 50 years of experience in helping companies automate, improve, and connect decisions. Using analytic techniques first pioneered by Fair Isaac Corporation, the authors clearly show how today's forward-thinking executives and managers are using analytic insights to ensure their decisions keep up with information complexity and the pace of change - especially changes in consumer behavior and attitudes, in regulations, and in competitive actions and reactions.

    The new model for marketing - Marketing 3.0 - treats customers not as mere consumers but as the complex, multi-dimensional human beings that they are. Customers, in turn, are choosing companies and products that satisfy deeper needs for participation, creativity, community, and idealism. In Marketing 3.0, world-leading marketing guru Philip Kotler explains why the future of marketing lies in creating products, services, and company cultures that inspire, include, and reflect the values of target customers.

It bridges the practical and the spiritual with insights and hands-on practices to help you live authentically in the midst of intense time pressure. You’ll cultivate: attention that's flexible or focused as needed; boundaries that keep you protected from unrealistic demands yet connected to others; choices in tune with your deepest values.

    Warren Buffett is a legend primarily for his investment philosophy. He isn't concerned about the intricacies of the market, but instead focuses on the quality of the companies Berkshire Hathaway stands behind. Yet we know little about the leaders of the companies that Buffett handpicks. In Behind the Berkshire Hathaway Curtain: Lessons from Warren Buffetts Top Business Leaders, author Ronald W. Chan founder and CEO of Chartwell Capital offers a behind-the-scenes look into the careers of Berkshire Hathaway executives.

    How the world's leading innovators push their ideas to fruition, time and time again. Edison famously said that genius is 1 percent inspiration, 99 percent perspiration. Ideas for new businesses, solutions to the world's problems, and artistic breakthroughs are common, but great execution is rare. According to Scott Belsky, the capacity to make ideas happen can be strengthened by anyone willing to build their organizational habits and harness the forces of community.
