The Color Revolution
79,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

When the fashion industry declares that lime green is the new black, or instructs us to ¿think pink!,¿ it is not the result of a backroom deal forged by a secretive cabal of fashion journalists, designers, manufacturers, and the editor of Vogue. It is the latest development of a color revolution that has been unfolding for more than a century. In this book, the award-winning historian Regina Lee Blaszczyk traces the relationship of color and commerce, from haute couture to automobile showrooms to interior design, describing the often unrecognized role of the color profession in consumer culture. Today professional colorists are part of design management teams at such global corporations as Hilton, Disney, and Toyota. The Color Revolution tells the history of how colorists help industry capture the hearts and dollars of consumers.

Inverting the Paradox of Excellence
92,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

'Taking inspiration from one of the best models of success, the evolutionary model, Inverting the Paradox of Excellence explains why companies should actively seek out changes or variations on a regular basis. Presenting an introduction to the patterns and anti-patterns of excellence, it includes detailed case studies based on different variations including, structure variations, shared values variations, and staff variations.This book presents various dimensions of business variations that are availablefor any company to explore in its continual quest for opportunities to achieve and sustain excellence. As long as it collectively and effectively covers the various aspects of an operational company, the exact set of the chosen dimensions of variations is immaterial. This book chooses and extends a set inspired originally by In Search of Excellence (as a tribute to its pioneering effort in focusing interest on the challenges of sustaining excellence in enterprise performance), namely, shared values, strategy, structure, stuff, style, staff, skills, systems and sequence.Instead of newer case studies, the book presents the usual and long familiar case studies through the prism of the 'variations' idea to experience the difference of the 'case history' approach presented here. The book includes case history segments for Toyota, Acer, eBay, ABB, Cisco, Blackberry, Tata, Samsung, Volvo, Charles Schwab, McDonald, Scania, Starbucks, Google, Disney, NUMMI and others. It has detailed case histories of three companies GE, IBM and UPS. At industry-level, the book focuses on the Automobile industry because it has been widely witnessed and participated by everyone across the world in the last century'--

Celebration, U.S.A.
7,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A prize-winning reporter, his wife, and their two kids describe life in Disney's vision of the future. In 1997, six months after the first residents had moved into Celebration, Florida-Disney's town of the future with its distinctly retro link to a longed-for past-Doug and Cathy and their two kids closed on their new home and settled down to participate in (and observe) this new venture. Their report from the trenches will surprise both Disney haters and Disney fans. What is it like to start a new community-not a suburb or subdivision, but a town, inted to be a self-supporting community with the best of the new technologies (including the very latest in teaching techniques) and the most cherished elements in American towns that existed before the automobile turned everything into a mall? For almost two years the family lived this experiment firsthand. Their report is vivid, funny, and painful-and it tells us as much about ourselves and our hopes and dreams as it does about the daily reality of building a community from the ground up.
