2013 Leadership Book Award for Innovation and Cutting-Edge Perspective Contextual Intelligence is a leadership model that will help you navigate constantly shifting environments. This book integrates a cutting-edge 3D Thinking framework with 12 core behaviors that will help you diagnose your context and lead others to higher levels of performance. Today's leadership landscape is dynamic and challenging. Earlier theories and assumptions appear to be inadequate and over simplistic in their ability to flex with the volatility and complexity of organizations which function in a knowledge economy at a local, national and global level. This book extends the non-Newtonian-based leadership paradigms by integrating the principles of tacit knowledge, synchronicity and time orientation, which are essential competencies for today's leaders.

Gulati/Mayo/Nohria's MANAGEMENT, 1E, by award-winning instructors and prominent Harvard business experts, addresses the many integrated facets in answering this key question to help you effectively prepare for successful leadership now and in the future.

Gulati/Mayo/Nohria's MANAGEMENT, 1E demonstrates the mutual interconnectivity between three key facets of management: strategic positioning, organizational design, and individual leadership.

What qualities make a leader succeed in business or politics? In an era when the information revolution has dramatically changed the playing field, when old organizational hierarchies have given way to fluid networks of contacts, and when mistrust of leaders is on the rise, our ideas about leadership are clearly due for redefinition. With The Powers to Lead, Joseph S. Nye offers a sweeping look at the nature of leadership in today's world, in an illuminating blend of history, business case studies, psychological research, and more. As he observes, many now believe that the more authoritarian and coercive forms of leadership--the hard power approaches of earlier military-industrial eras--have been largely supplanted in postindustrial societies by soft power approaches that seek to attract, inspire, and persuade rather than dictate. Nye argues, however, that the most effective leaders are actually those who combine hard and soft power skills in proportions that vary with different situations. He calls this smart power. Drawing examples from the careers of leaders as disparate as Gandhi, Churchill, Lee Iacocca, and George W. Bush, Nye uses the concept of smart power to shed light on such topics as leadership types and skills, the needs and demands of followers, and the nature of good and bad leadership in terms of both ethics and effectiveness. In one particularly instructive chapter, he looks in depth at contextual intelligence--the ability to understand changing environments, capitalize on trends, and use the flow of events to implement strategies. Thoroughly grounded in the real world, rich in both analysis and anecdote, The Powers to Lead is sure to become a modern classic, a concise and lucid work applicable to every field, from small businesses and nonprofit organizations to nations on the world stage. This paperback edition includes a new preface by the author.

Following in the footsteps of the web, Web 2.0, and the iPod, Ubiquitous Computing ("UbiComp") is the next game-changing technology. Leading expert Bo Begole, the director of PARC’s UbiComp Center, shows executives, technology managers, and entrepreneurs how to successfully incorporate UbiComp into their own products, services, and strategies. Begole introduces the technologies of UbiComp, shows how they fit together, and identifies the challenges and opportunities they present. Next, he answers the key questions decision-makers and strategists ask most often about UbiComp, including: What is it, why does it matter, and how will it impact my business? What industries will be most affected first? Which parts of my organization will UbiComp change most? What UbiComp solutions should we consider for our internal business processes? How should I position my company for these transformations? What barriers must we overcome and which barriers can we erect for our competitors? What should I build, partner, or buy? What barriers does my company need to overcome to adopt a UbiComp-based business?

Market-Driven Thinking provides a useful mental model and tools for learning about how executives and customers think within marketplace contexts. When the need to learn about how executives and customer think is recognized, a solution is usually implemented automatically, with no thought given to the relative worth of alternative methods to learn fill the need. Thus, the "dominant logics" (most often implemented methods) to learn about thinking are written surveys and focus group interviews--two research methods that that almost always fail to provide valid and useful answers on how and why executives and customers think the way they do. Through descriptive research, MDT examines the actual thinking and actions by executives and customers related to making marketplace decisions. The book aims to achieve three objectives: * Increase the reader's knowledge of the unconscious and conscious thinking processes of participants marketplace contexts * Provide research tools useful for revealing the unconscious and conscious thinking processes of executives and customers * Provide in-depth examples of these research tools in both business-to-business and business-to-consumer contexts This book asks how we actually go about thinking, examining this process and its influences within the context of B2B and B2C marketplaces in developed nations.
