NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The Huffington Post ? Financial Times ? Success ? Inc. ? Library Journal ´´What does it mean to manage well?´´ From Ed Catmull, co-founder (with Steve Jobs and John Lasseter) of Pixar Animation Studios, comes an incisive book about creativity in business-sure to appeal to readers of Daniel Pink, Tom Peters, and Chip and Dan Heath. Forbes raves that Creativity, Inc. ´´just might be the business book ever written.´´ Creativity, Inc. is a book for managers who want to lead their employees to new heights, a manual for anyone who strives for originality, and the first-ever, all-access trip into the nerve center of Pixar Animation-into the meetings, postmortems, and ´´Braintrust´´ sessions where some of the most successful films in history are made. It is, at heart, a book about how to build a creative culture-but it is also, as Pixar co-founder and president Ed Catmull writes, ´´an expression of the ideas that I believe make the best in us possible.´´ For nearly twenty years, Pixar has dominated the world of animation, producing such beloved films as the Toy Story trilogy, Monsters, Inc., Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Up, and WALL-E, which have gone on to set box-office records and garner thirty Academy Awards. The joyousness of the storytelling, the inventive plots, the emotional authenticity: In some ways, Pixar movies are an object lesson in what creativity really is. Here, in this book, Catmull reveals the ideals and techniques that have made Pixar so widely admired-and so profitable. As a young man, Ed Catmull had a dream: to make the first computer-animated movie. He nurtured that dream as a Ph.D. student at the University of Utah, where many computer science pioneers got their start, and then forged a partnership with George Lucas that led, indirectly, to his founding Pixar with Steve Jobs and John Lasseter in 1986. Nine years later, Toy Story was released, changing animation forever. The essential ingredient in that movie´s success-and in the thirteen movies that followed-was the unique environment that Catmull and his colleagues built at Pixar, based on philosophies that protect the creative process and defy convention, such as: ? Give a good idea to a mediocre team, and they will screw it up. But give a mediocre idea to a great team, and they will either fix it or come up with something better. ? If you don´t strive to uncover what is unseen and understand its nature, you will be ill prepared to lead. ? It´s not the manager´s job to prevent risks. It´s the manager´s job to make it safe for others to take them. ? The cost of preventing errors is often far greater than the cost of fixing them. ? A company´s communication structure should not mirror its organizational structure. Everybody should be able to talk to anybody. Praise for Creativity, Inc. ´´Over more than thirty years, Ed Catmull has developed methods to root out and destroy the barriers to creativity, to marry creativity to the pursuit of excellence, and, most impressive, to sustain a culture of disciplined creativity during setbacks and success.´´-Jim Collins, co-author of Built to Last and author of Good to Great ´´Too often, we seek to keep the status quo working. This is a book about breaking it.´´-Seth Godin

With her trademark humor, enthusiasm, and no-nonsense guidance, Pam Grout, the number-one New York Times best-selling author of E-Squared, invites you on a yearlong ´´apprenticeship´´ to recognize and unleash your innate creativity. Making art does not necessarily mean painting a gallery-worthy still life or belting out a Grammy-winning song. It simply means finding a way to give your inner muse a voice in this world. Sure, there´s drawing, dancing, singing, and writing. But there´s also art to be made from creating your own pair of angel wings or inventing a new toy or curating your own at-home film festival. Each week, Grout inspires you to take on a creative project, offers an inspirational message, and suggests three zany activities to awaken your infinite creativity. You don´t need to know anything! You just have to begin! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Pam Grout. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/hayh/000384/bk_hayh_000384_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Are you ready to get started on your delightful and fulfilling journey to becoming a skilled toy maker? Yes? Then let´s get started! All too often a budding toy maker will rush right out, buy the first craft kit they see at the craft store, grab some materials and tools and head right into their workshop for a weekend of creative fun. Sadly, the experience is usually less than positive. Often the toy ends up breaking or looks so horrible that not even the dog will play with it. All that effort has achieved nothing and the toy ends up in the bin. It is worse still when maybe the child likes the toy and proudly shows it off to his friends, only to have it scorned and scoffed at. They are so hurt that it can make them lose their friends and their confidence--not to mention you losing your own. Before you know it you have decided against trying again and thus you lose the opportunity to let your creative side flow. Instead, you stifle your creativity and find something else to do because you are never willing to try making toys again. It doesn´t have to be like that. You can learn the basics of toy making and take it to whatever destination you desire. Maybe you can even set up a home business doing it. This book gives you everything you need to get started. Not only will you learn where to access the right patterns for your needs, you will learn also learn how to find materials that do not cost the earth. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dennis E.

Brick by Brick takes you inside the LEGO you´ve never seen. By following the teams that are inventing some of the world´s best-loved toys, it spotlights the company´s disciplined approach to harnessing creativity and recounts one of the most remarkable business transformations in recent memory. Brick by Brick reveals how LEGO failed to keep pace with the revolutionary changes in kids´ lives and began sliding into irrelevance. When the company´s leaders implemented some of the business world´s most widely espoused prescriptions for boosting innovation, they ironically pushed the iconic toymaker to the brink of bankruptcy. The company´s near-collapse shows that what works in theory can fail spectacularly in the brutally competitive global economy. It took a new LEGO management team - faced with the growing rage for electronic toys, few barriers to entry, and ultra-demanding consumers (10-year old boys) - to reinvent the innovation rule book and transform LEGO into one of the world´s most profitable, fastest-growing companies. Along the way, Brick by Brick reveals how LEGO: Became truly customer-driven by co-creating with kids as well as its passionate adult fans Looked beyond products and learned to leverage a full-spectrum approach to innovation Opened its innovation process by using both the ´´wisdom of crowds´´ and the expertise of elite cliques Discovered uncontested, ´´blue ocean´´ markets, even as it thrived in brutally competitive red oceansGave its world-class design teams enough space to create and direction to deliver built a culture where profitable innovation flourishes Sometimes radical yet always applicable, Brick by Brick abounds with real-world lessons for unleashing breakthrough innovation in your organization, just like LEGO.

Yawn: Adventures in Boredom , Hörbuch, Digital,...
€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The incisive and often hilarious story of one of our most interesting cultural phenomena: boredom. It´s the feeling your grandma told you was only experienced by boring people. Some people say they´re dying of it; others claim to have killed because of it. It´s a key component of depression, creativity, and sex-toy advertisements. It´s boredom, the subject of Yawn, a delightful and at times moving take on the oft-derided emotion and how we deal with it. Deftly wrought from interviews, research, and personal experience, Yawn follows Mary Mann´s search through history for the truth about boredom, spanning the globe, introducing a varied cast of characters. The Desert Fathers - fourth-century Christian monks who made their homes far from civilization - offer the first recorded accounts of lethargy; Thomas Cook, grandfather of the tourism industry, provided escape from the mundane for England´s working class; and contemporarily, we meet couples who are disenchanted by monogamous sex, deployed soldiers who seek entertainment and connection in porn, and prisoners held in solitary confinement, for whom boredom is a punishment for crimes they may or may not have committed. With sharp wit and impressive historical acumen, Mann tells the unexpected story of the hunt for a deeper understanding of boredom in all its absurd, irritating, and inspiring splendor. 1.

You know the Super Soaker. It´s one of the top 20 toys of all time. And it was an accidental discovery that brought it into being. Trying to create a new cooling system for refrigerators and air conditioners, inventor Lonnie Johnson instead created the mechanics for the iconic toy. A love of rockets, robots, and inventions and a mind for creativity were present in Lonnie Johnson´s early life. Growing up in a house full of brothers and sisters, Lonnie demonstrated persistence and a passion for problem solving that became the cornerstone of his career as an engineer and his work with NASA. But it is Lonnie´s invention of the Super Soaker water gun that has made the most memorable splash in popular culture. 1. Language: English. Narrator: J. D. Jackson.

Based on Amy Gorman´s interviews, Aging Artfully portrays the lives of 12 vibrant women in the visual and performing arts, all in their ninth decade and beyond, living with zest.
