Making the Invisible Visible

The Human Principles for Sustaining Innovation

Organizations need innovation like plants need water; without it, they will die. Great innovations are always the result of blending the right technology, the right business model, and the right people. But in the end, it always comes back to the people and the organization. Innovation depends on the human beings who make it happen. I have found that to foster and sustain the creative spirit, an organization must understand and act in accordance with the human principles that underlie the innovation process. Understanding these principles requires an honest focus on people and their relationship with business and organizational concerns. Because only human beings create ideas, only human beings can sow the seeds of innovation. In this book, it is my hope to show how focusing on people their unique qualities, their values, and their diverse organizational roles is the most essential step in creating a vibrant, flourishing, innovating organization. Making the Invisible Visible sets forth principles that are necessary to create an innovative culture and help innovation leaders find, fund and nurture the right people. It is for managers, innovation leaders, or anyone inspired by a love of actualized ideas.

In this book, it is my hope to show how focusing on people their unique qualities, their values, and their diverse organizational roles is the most essential step in creating a vibrant, flourishing, innovating organization.

The Patron Way: From Fantasy to Fortune - Lessons on Taking Any Business From Idea to Iconic Brand : From Fantasy to Fortune - Lessons on Taking Any Business From Idea to Iconic Brand

From Fantasy to Fortune - Lessons on Taking Any Business From Idea to Iconic Brand

The never-before-told story of Patrón Tequila--the brand that revolutionized an industry How a billion-dollar business ascended from a forgotten dusty agave field in central Mexico The Patrón Way details the unorthodox building of the brand, the extraordinary creativity and marketing ingenuity of Patrón's cofounder, Martin Crowley, and his life partner, Ilana Edelstein, and the way Patrón single-handedly transformed the face of the liquor industry. Edelstein was involved in every aspect of the business--from the brand’s iconic bottle to designing the sexy and attention-getting outfits worn by the famous "Patrón Girls" at promotions and parties to running the back office. Patrón is a tequila so sumptuous--and so brilliantly marketed--that it has become the world’s leading ultrapremium tequila and has changed the way the spirit is experienced: what was once "gasoline" slammed back in a shot glass is now poured from an exquisite hand-blown bottle into a chilled glass and sipped to attain a "Patrón high." Today, Patrón has grown to over a billion-dollar brand, and it is the largest generator of revenue of all tequila brands. Edelstein combines the dramatic story of the company’s rise to success in an astonishingly competitive and sometimes cutthroat industry with practical business lessons about R&D and brand building that business leaders can put to productive use in any industry. A tale of love, sacrifice, celebrity, dizzying success, and ultimate betrayal, The Patrón Way reveals for the first time all the details behind the intimate relationship and marketing genius of the "power couple" that transformed the spirits industry.

Jodoh

Apa itu jodoh? Barangkali kau sering bertanya-tanya tentangnya. Barangkali imajinasimu tentang belahan jiwa begitu sederhana: di tepi pantai, kau mengandaikan ada orang di seberang sana, yang tengah menunggumu untuk berlayar. Namun di saat yang sama, terkadang kau justru meragu, sehingga seringkali hanya bisa menunggu, mendambakan orang yang kau nantikan itu akan lebih dulu merakit sampannya, mengayun dayungnya, dan mengarahkan kompasnya untuk menjemputmu. Tetapi laut, ombak, dan isinya selalu menjadi misteri yang tak terduga-duga, bukan? Orang yang kau sangka belahan jiwa sering kali hanyalah perantara, atau justru pengalih perhatian dari belahan jiwamu yang sesungguhnya. Lalu, kepada siapakah seharusnya kita menambatkan sauh? Di manakah semestinya kita meninggalkan kompas? Kapankah kita perlu menantang nasib, garis tangan, dan rasi bintang? Ini adalah kisah tentang seorang laki-laki dan perempuan, yang memutuskan untuk berlayar jauh sebelum mereka mengenal ketakutan; jauh sebelum mereka bisa membaca arah atau menebak cuaca; bahkan jauh sebelum mereka disibukkan dengan pertanyaan-pertanyaan tentang waktu, takdir, cinta, dan jodoh itu sendiri.
