The Luxury Strategy has established itself as the definitive work that sets the record straight on the essence of a luxury strategy. It puts an end to the prevailing conceptual and managerial confusion, and explains the fundamental differences between ´´premium´´, ´´fashion´´, and ´´luxury´´ strategies. Based on an analysis of the social functions of luxury, worldwide best practices (beyond the traditional sectors of luxury) and first hand direct experience, it sets out the constraining and often paradoxical rules for success, such as turning marketing rules upside down. The second, completely revised and updated edition of this classic text explores the diversity of meanings of ´´luxury´´ across different markets as well as the impact of social networks and digital developments on the luxury strategy. Written by two world experts on the subject, it provides the first rigorous blueprint for the effective management of luxury brands and companies at the highest level, including human resources and financial management. It rationalizes those business models that have achieved profitability and unveils the original methods that were used to transform small family businesses such as Ferrari, Louis Vuitton, Cartier, Chanel, Armani, Gucci, and Ralph Lauren into profitable global brands. The Luxury Strategy will help you to gain a thorough understanding of the unique rules for successful luxury brand management. But more than this, it describes how any organization, from any sector, can learn from luxury and differentiate itself in the long term, even in the business-to-business environment.

Until now, the literature on innovation has focused either on radical innovation pushed by technology or incremental innovation pulled by the market. In i Design-Driven Innovation: How to Compete by Radically Innovating What Things Means/i , Roberto Verganti introduces a third strategy, a radical shift in perspective that introduces a bold new way of competing. Design-driven innovations do not come from the market; they create new markets. They don´t push new technologies; they push new meanings. It´s about having a vision, and taking that vision to your customers. Think of game-changers like Nintendo´s Wii or Apple´s iPod. They overturned our understanding of what a video game means and how we listen to music. Customers had not asked for these new meanings, but once they experienced them, it was love at first sight. But where does the vision come from? With fascinating examples from leading European and American companies, Verganti shows that for truly breakthrough products and services, we must look beyond customers and users to those he calls ´´interpreters´´ - the experts who deeply understand and shape the markets they work in. Design-Driven Innovation offers a provocative new view of innovation thinking and practice.
Finally a go-to guide to creating and publishing the kind of content that will make your business thrive. Everybody Writes is a go-to guide to attracting and retaining customers through stellar online communication, because in our content-driven world, every one of us is, in fact, a writer. If you have a web site, you are a publisher. If you are on social media, you are in marketing. And that means that we are all relying on our words to carry our marketing messages. We are all writers. Yeah, but who cares about writing anymore? In a time-challenged world dominated by short and snappy, by click-bait headlines and Twitter streams and Instagram feeds and gifs and video and Snapchat and YOLO and LOL and #tbt. . . does the idea of focusing on writing seem pedantic and ordinary? Actually, writing matters more now, not less. Our online words are our currency; they tell our customers who we are. Our writing can make us look smart or it can make us look stupid. It can make us seem fun, or warm, or competent, or trustworthy. But it can also make us seem humdrum or discombobulated or flat-out boring. That means you´ve got to choose words well, and write with economy and the style and honest empathy for your customers. And it means you put a new value on an often-overlooked skill in content marketing: How to write, and how to tell a true story really, really well. That´s true whether you´re writing a listicle or the words on a Slideshare deck or the words you´re reading right here, right now... And so being able to communicate well in writing isn´t just nice; it´s necessity. And it´s also the oft-overlooked cornerstone of nearly all our content marketing. In Everybody Writes, top marketing veteran Ann Handley gives expert guidance and insight into the process and strategy of content creation, production and publishing, with actionable how-to advice designed to get results. These lessons and rules apply across all of your online assets -- like web pages, home page, landing pages, blogs, email, marketing offers, and on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and other social media. Ann deconstructs the strategy and delivers a practical approach to create ridiculously compelling and competent content. It´s designed to be the go-to guide for anyone creating or publishing any kind of online content -- whether you´re a big brand or you´re small and solo. Sections include: * How to write better. (Or, for ´´adult-onset writers´´: How to hate writing less.) * Easy grammar and usage rules tailored for business in a fun, memorable way. (Enough to keep you looking sharp, but not too much to overwhelm you.) * Giving your audience the gift of your true story, told well. Empathy and humanity and inspiration are key here, so the book covers that, too. * Best practices for creating credible, trustworthy content steeped in some time-honored rules of solid journalism. Because publishing content and talking directly to your customers is, at its heart, a privilege. * ´´Things Marketers Write´´: The fundamentals of 17 specific kinds of content that marketers are often tasked with crafting. * Content Tools: The sharpest tools you need to get the job done. Traditional marketing techniques are no longer enough. Everybody Writes is a field guide for the smartest businesses who know that great content is the key to thriving in this digital world.
This book examines the global corporate strategy of Japanese multi-national enterprises (MNEs) and analyses their position in today´s business environment. Focusing in particular upon Indonesia, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Sri Lanka and Vietnam, Japanese Global Strategy presents nine empirical case studies on companies including Denso, Furukawa Electric and Yamaha Motor. Based on questionnaires and interviews with senior managers, this book applies the hybrid theories of application and adaptation to each company´s corporate strategy. By delving into the historical reasons behind investing in strategy, the author asserts that MNEs should be a priory for Asian markets, making this an invaluable read for anyone researching international business and Asian business more specifically.
