Definitely one of my favourite business books of last year — not just likeable, but loveable. Both authors are vice presidents at Forrester Research, and, as such, have access to and understanding of a wealth of knowledge about social change and web 2. Groundswell is the result of much of that research. The book explores how consumers are using online social technologies such as blogs and podcasts to create their own discussion about products and companies, find the best deals and write their own news. As a company, this is a scary thought. But using the research Li and Bernoff are presenting here, companies have a real opportunity to protect and strengthen their public image through the use of social technologies.
It was recommended to me by an agency exec friend, who could not stop raving about how much it helped him understand and evaluate social media as a business tool. This is a must-read for any company doing business in the digital age, but even more vital for agencies who operate in this space. You can't be in the ad business and not have heard of St.
Lukes, the infamous London agency that bucked the culture of advertising to its core. In , a small group of creatives got together to test out an idea. They loved the work, but hated the workplace, and wanted to create an agency where creativity, ingenuity, innovation and a sense of fun would thrive, instead of being stifled. This book is like the blockbuster movie of the agency world — fast-paced, full of witty one-liners and impossible-to-believe scenarios. There is a lot of controversy over just how much the agency's failings and there are always some have been glossed over, but I found this book an engaging and entertaining look at a unique era in agency history.
The year marked the biggest merger in American history. Time Warner and America Online became overnight the largest media company in the world. AOL Time Warner was hailed as a rising success; the perfect meshing of the old media and the new media. Three years later, nearly all the executives behind the merger were gone, the company had lost tens of billions of dollars, and the U. So what the hell happened? In his book, Klein reveals a twisted, riveting tale of hubris, ambition and greed as it unfolded in the midst of the technology bubble.
This is pure beach reading for agency folk — it's a primer on what not to do, as well as a damn unpardonable story. Another book from the mighty Jon Steel, this book looks at how an agency account planner must work in partnership with clients, consumers, and the creative team. Steel wants account planners to understand that the right research, transformed into an inspiring creative brief, can be the catalyst for the most brilliant new ideas and campaigns.
Witty and erudite, Steel expertly weaves research and methodology alongside case studies and personal anecdotes. Steel is truly a hero in the business, and there is much to learn from this book. Yet very few people understand it. Even fewer know how to manage it. Still, everyone wants it. This book isn't a heavy read, and it often feels a bit light on information.
Neumeier accompanies his text with diagrams, summaries and illustrations, meaning there's a lot of time spent dealing with conceptual issues. But I enjoy the author's crisp writing style and found his views on the design process and how to better integrate it into strategic thinking to be extremely insightful. How is new technology changing us? Are we becoming less consumers, more collaborators? Clay Shirky thinks so, and in Cognitive Surplus, he talks about many of the changes taking place now and in the future and how they are altering the way we interact with brands.
His research suggests that this cognitive surplus actually returns our society to it's natural, collaborative, state. I enjoyed the intense and extremely optimistic picture of a technologically driven world that the author puts forth. If you're a creative, or work with creatives, this book offers some integral insights into how we create, and why, and what we can do to work together better. Shirky's outlook demonstrates a hopeful and joyous future for humankind, one I definitely want to be a part of.
