Four books that might interest you

In cooperation with GetAbstract, we once again present four new books from the marketing sector. This time: "Innovator's Playbook", "B2B - or not to be?", "The Art of the Good Argument" and "Brandtelling".

Innovator's Playbook

Develop products and services that customers love.

  • Author: Nathan Baird

Most innovations flop. This could be dismissed as a systemic risk, but Nathan Baird disagrees. He sees mistakes in craftsmanship, false ambition and inexperience as the causes of failure. What goes wrong in the early stages of an innovation project cannot be fixed later. Baird covers the entire innovation process in his book, but pays particular attention to the beginning. A recommended read for all innovation managers and product developers.
