What fuels long-term business success? Not operational excellence, technology breakthroughs, or new business models, but management innovation—new ways of mobilizing talent, allocating resources, and formulating strategies. Through history, management innovation has enabled companies to cross new performance thresholds and build enduring advantages. In The Future of Management, Gary Hamel argues that organizations need management innovation now more than ever. Why? The management paradigm of the last century—centered on control and efficiency—no longer suffices in a world where adaptability and creativity drive business success. To thrive in the future, companies must reinvent management. Hamel explains how to turn your company into a serial management innovator, revealing: The make-or-break challenges that will determine competitive success in an age of relentless, head-snapping change. The toxic effects of traditional management beliefs. The unconventional management practices generating breakthrough results in “modern management pioneers.” The radical principles that will need to become part of every company’s “management DNA.” The steps your company can take now to build your “management advantage.” Practical and profound, The Future of Management features examples from Google, W.L. Gore, Whole Foods, IBM, Samsung, Best Buy, and other blue-ribbon management innovators.

From Corporate To Social Media

The corporate and the social are crucial themes of our times. In the first decade of the twenty-first century, both individual lives and society were shaped by capitalist crisis and the rise of social media. But what marks the distinctively social character of "social media"? And how does it relate to the wider social and economic context of contemporary capitalism? The concept of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is based on the idea that a socially responsible capitalism is possible; this suggests that capitalist media corporations can not only enable social interaction and cooperation but also be socially responsible. This book provides a critical and provocative perspective on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in media and communication industries. It examines both the academic discourse on CSR and actual corporate practices in the media sector, offering a double critique that reveals contradictions between corporate interests and social responsibilities. Marisol Sandoval’s political economic analysis of Apple, AT&T, Google, HP, Microsoft, News Corp, The Walt Disney Company and Vivendi shows that media and communication in the twenty-first century are confronted with fundamental social responsibility challenges. From software patents and intellectual property rights to privacy on the Internet, from working conditions in electronics manufacturing to hidden flows of eWaste – this book encourages the reader to explore the multifaceted social (ir)responsibilities that shape commercial media landscapes today. It makes a compelling argument for thinking beyond the corporate in order to envision and bring about truly social media. It will interest students and scholars of media studies, cultural industry studies, sociology, information society studies, organization studies, political economy, business and management.

What does the world want? According to John Battelle, a company that answers that question—in all its shades of meaning—can unlock the most intractable riddles of business and arguably of human culture itself. And for the past few years, that’s exactly what Google has been doing. But The Search offers much more than the inside story of Google’s triumph. It’s a big-picture book about the past, present, and future of search technology and the enormous impact it’s starting to have on marketing, media, pop culture, dating, job hunting, international law, civil liberties, and just about every other sphere of human interest. From the Trade Paperback edition.

The most talented Creative Directors in Silicon Valley met in a conference room next to my office to create the first advertisements for Adobe Illustrators version for Windows known as Illustrator 7.0. The slogan we picked after a night of North Beach pizza with Molson's beer was "I Do Windows." The Creative Directors began to call their collaboration KR8V (Creative). Before Illustrator 7.0, Adobe software was Mac based for Apple computers. Our team was going to change all that. Not only with online banner ads, standup cutouts made of thick cardboard, but a rebate ad. Online banners in 1997 were selling for $1200 to $1800 per ad to create with Adobe Photoshop. The rebate program would be Adobe System's first. This project opened up the doors to other Adobe Departments. KR8V Creative Directors were asked to design the first websites, Internet advertisement as well as print ads for PageMaker, PageMill, and soon eSchwab. Winners of the rebate campaign won a trip to Paris, France, because the promotion went beyond the high tech technology of San Francisco Bay Area connected to Adobe's headquarters in San Jose, California. The advertising campaign was going to be worldwide. By the end of the week, we were receiving orders from Charles Schwab International Electronic Brokerage. The calls came from eSchwab to make tutorial CDs that would be mailed out to investors so as to teach the investors to barter online instead of with a broker. The languages evolved from English only to Mandarin Chinese and Spanish for the Latin American investors. Seventy percent of the staff was let go in some brokerage firms. Brokers didn't have to engage in conversations with clients if the investors were invited online. Investing over the Internet was the web portal to the future. The portal was nicknamed vertical, because of the emphasis on financial news, monetary policy, and stock market events. By being a gateway to money, the firm focused with a digital precision. Soon Memphis hospitals were coming to us to create a portal called Phyve, Digital Medical Systems, and Baptist Medical. The programmers brought account executives from Nashville, Tennessee. The buildings involved with the industry's recording of country music on a space called Music Row wanted us to create radio stations across the Internet. COR Medical researched a portal in Santa Barbara, California. The world leader in atomic force microscopes made me their first Webmaster to create a public portal to the Nanotechnology as well as an Internal Portal that was only made available to employees with a log in number and password. The servers were advancing quickly. After buying servers from Dell Computers, we had the top technician from Dell's Headquarters in Texas stay with us for one week so that we could learn about the advancements made on the web server technology by Dell. The concentration on servers was the way of the future for companies relying on computer technology.

In order to be able to communicate and engage with each other via new communicative spaces such as Google Earth, we need to understand as much as possible about how they work as cultural texts: how and why we make them and how we respond to them. Launched in 2005, Google Earth is a virtual globe, map and geographical information program, mapping the Earth by the superimposition of images obtained from satellite imagery and aerial photography. By addressing the sociopolitical issues at stake in society's use of social websites, the author provides the first ever extended close reading of Google Earth as a powerful player in the communication realm of social media. By grounding the context of its military pre-history, its construction, its links to other similar world-making sites such as Google Maps and how it is perceived critically by social scientists, it is imperative to understand how social networking and information sites work in socio and geo-political contexts if society is to use these sites effectively and for the public good.
