What is a meatball sundae? It's something messy, disgusting and ineffective, the result of combining two perfectly good things that don't go together. Meatballs are the basic staples, the things people need, the stuff that used to be marketed quite well with TV and other mass market techniques. The topping is new marketing: MySpace, websites, YouTube, and all of the magic that CEOs wish would shine atop their companies. The problem? New marketing is lousy at selling meatballs. When confronted with the myriad opportunities presented by new marketing, people usually ask 'How can we make this stuff work for us?' This, as Seth Godin explains in his remarkable new book, is exactly the wrong question. Mapping out 14 trends that are completely remaking what it means to be a marketer - and by extension transforming what we make and how we make it - Godin shows how the question for any thriving 21st century business must be: 'How can we alter our business to become an organization that thrives on new marketing?' Meatball Sundae is an essential guide to the fundamental shift taking place in the marketing and business world, and shows you how to align your business to it.

The must-read summary of Seth Godin's book: "Meatball Sundae: Is Your Marketing Out of Sync?". This complete summary of the ideas from Seth Godin's book "Meatball Sundae" shows that sometimes when you mix two good ideas, you can come up with something incompatible. A meatball sundae sounds entirely unappetising, even though in and of themselves meatballs might taste nice and ice cream sundaes taste good. In his book, the author explains that the same thing is happening in marketing today. Think of traditional marketing vehicles as being like meatballs. Many successful companies have been built from the ground up using conventional marketing strategies and techniques. When these companies try and add in the new marketing devices like social networks, blogs, Google and all the other interesting stuff, it doesn't work. Added-value of this summary: • Save time • Understand key concepts • Expand your knowledge To learn more, read "Meatball Sundae" and find out how to make the right combinations and start making superior ice cream sundaes.

The era of social technologies provides seemingly endless opportunity, both for individuals and organizations. But it’s also the subject of seemingly endless hype. Yes, social tools allow us to do things entirely differently—but how do you really capitalize on that? In 11 Rules for Creating Value in the Social Era, the newest in Harvard Business Review’s line of digital books (HBR Singles), social strategist and insightful blogger Nilofer Merchant argues that “social” is much more than “media.” Smart companies are letting social become the backbone of their business models, increasing their speed and flexibility by pursuing openness and fluidity. These organizations don’t operate like the powerful “800-pound gorillas” of yesteryear—but instead act more like a herd of 800 gazelles, moving together across a savannah, outrunning the competition. This ebook offers new rules for creating value, leading, and innovating in our rapidly changing world. These social era rules are both provocative and grounded in reality—they cover thorny challenges like forsaking hierarchy and control for collaboration; getting the most out of all talent; allowing your customers to become co-creators in your organization; inspiring employees through purpose in a world where money alone no longer wields that power; and soliciting community investment in an idea so that it can take hold and grow. The strategies of the Industrial Era—or even the Information Age—will not be enough for the Social Era. Read 11 Rules for Creating Value in the Social Era to get ready to meet the challenges of this new age and thrive. HBR Singles provide brief yet potent business ideas, in digital form, for today's thinking professional. Editorial Reviews Named a “Best Business Book of 2012” by Fast Company “Ms. Merchant's new work provides a provocative vision of the future of both what organizations and what work might look like, yet grounded in real businesses today…this will inspire ideas and thought about what running a business really means.” — Forbes.com “Every CEO, CMO, and decision maker needs to read this.

Nilofer Merchant helps executives see what’s at stake in the connection economy.” — Seth Godin, author, Meatball Sundae: Is Your Marketing Out of Sync? “Traditional strategy is dead. But do not fear—Nilofer Merchant shows how your organization can thrive with the new rules of the Social Era. Buy yourself a copy—and one for every member of your board.” — Charlene Li, founder, Altimeter Group; author, Open Leadership: How Social Technology Can Transform the Way You Lead; and coauthor, Groundswell “Social media is not about hooking up online.

I hope you’re hungry.” — Mitch Joel, President, Twist Image; author, Six Pixels of Separation: Everyone Is Connected. Connect Your Business to Everyone “Nilofer Merchant offers not just a name—the Social Era—to these confusing and turbulent times, but thoughtful and straightforward advice about how both institutions and people can thrive, not just be the last one standing. Required reading for today’s leaders—and tomorrow’s.” — Barry Z. Posner, Accolti Professor of Leadership, Santa Clara University; coauthor, The Leadership Challenge: How to Make Extraordinary Things Happen in Organizations “With tools, metrics, and markets pulsing with change, Nilofer’s 11 Rules for Creating Value in the Social Era is a vital compass to staying relevant and profitable. Embrace them.” — Lisa Gansky, entrepreneur; author, The Mesh: Why the Future of Business Is Sharing “Nilofer Merchant deftly dissects the industrial traditions that are failing us. Not content to simply describe the state of affairs, she also offers comprehensive, prescient guidelines for taking the future into our own hands. This book opened me up to a whole new way of thinking about business, influence, and power.” — Deanna Zandt, media technologist; author, Share This!: How You Will Change the World with Social Networking “11 Rules for Creating Value in the Social Era completely, convincingly, and lucidly redefines what it’s going to take for companies to be successful going forward. Powerfully provocative and highly practical. Bravo, Nilofer!” — Tony Schwartz, President and CEO, The Energy Project; coauthor, The Power of Full Engagement and The Way We’re Working Isn’t Working

Als Ehemann und Vater von vier Söhnen weiß Unternehmensberater Patrick Lencioni aus eigener leidvoller Erfahrung, wie ein stressiges Familienleben aussieht - doch viel wichtiger noch: Er weiß, wie man effektiv damit umgeht. In Lencionis neuer Leadership-Fabel gibt es ein Wiedersehen mit Jude Cousins, dem jungen, aufstrebenden Consultant aus dem Buch Silos, Politik und Grabenkämpfe. An seinem Beispiel erfahren wir, wie schon einige einfache und praktische Werkzeuge ohne großen zeitlichen Aufwand helfen, weniger Stress und dafür mehr Übersichtlichkeit und Freude in das Familienleben zu bringen. Ein ernsthaftes Strategie-Meeting zwischen Windeln und Abwasch? Es mag etwas seltsam erscheinen, Management-Tools und Geschäftslösungen auf das Privatleben zu übertragen. Doch es lohnt sich! Schließlich ist die Familie auch nichts anderes als eine Organisation, und zwar die wichtigste in unserem Leben!
