Business Ethics In A New Europe

RRP $28.55

ETHICS IN THE MELTING-POT Jack Mahoney & Elizabeth Vallance Professor Jack Mahoney is Director of the King's College Business Ethics Research Centre, University of London, and Elizabeth Vallance is Visiting Professor in Politics at Queen Mary and Westfield College, University of London. AT lHE START of this century Israel Zangwill wrote of 'the great Melting­ Pot where all the races of Europe are melting and reforming'. He was, of course, writing about the USA and had the American immigration experience in mind; but today one need not cross the Atlantic to see Europe as a melting-pot and its members in a state of profound flux and mutation. In Western Europe, what began in mid-century as a largely Franco­ German attempt to prevent a recurrence of European war, by identifying and creating a common industrial policy in coal and steel, evolved by degrees into an industrial alliance of western European nations and the creation of a Single European Market. Originally six, then ten, and currently twelve, the number of member states of the European Economic Community, more recently the European Community, is still on the increase, as new countries apply to join and others consider a future approach.


The Business Model Canvas Playbook

RRP $16.99

A MUST HAVE FOR VISIONARIES, ENTREPRENEURS, EXECUTIVES AND CONSULTANTS WITH A GAME CHANGING ATTITUDE

This is not a fiction or non-fiction book. It is also not a workbook.

So what is it then?

This book consists of several worksheets. To be precise: 50 blank business model canvases. Since worksheet did not sound appealing enough, we chose "playbook".

A playbook contains a sports team's strategies and plays. Very similar to a business model of startups / companies.


WHAT IS A CANVAS?

Alexander Osterwalder's business model canvas presents a visual overview of the nine components of any business on one page. This page has nine boxes that depict the details of a company's product, customers, channels, demand creation, revenue models, partners, resources, activities and cost structure.


HOW SHOULD I USE THIS PLAYBOOK?

What exactly you do with it is up to you. I personally recommend you fill the canvases with your ideas, guesses, visions and strategies, than you experiment and test things in real life and change your business model along the way.

To do it the right way I highly recommend reading:

1. Business Model Generation by Alexander Osterwalder & Yves Pigneur. The inventors of the business model canvas. A must! Enough said.

2. The Lean Startup by Eric Ries. Successfully launch your startup and prevent failure.

3. The Startup Owner's Manual by Steven Blank & Bob Dorf:

As stated by Blank & Dorf, 2012 in The Startup Owner's Manual

"As a startup moves through the Customer Development process, it will use the business model canvas as a scorecard, by posting the hypotheses about each component of the model and then revising the hypotheses as the founders gather facts.
Think of your first version of the business model canvas as the starting point showing the hypotheses that must be confirmed in face-to face or online interaction with customers. ()
Using the business model canvas as a guide makes it easier to figure out where and how to pivot, since the team can visually diagram its alternatives and see what it needs to change.
Each time the founders iterate or pivot in response to customer feedback, they draw a new canvas showing changes. Over time, these multiple canvases form a "flip book" that shows the evolution of the business model." (Steven Blank & Bob Dorf, 2012)

Small Business Lending Fund

RRP $417.99

This book examines the Small Business Lending Fund, with a focus on the supply and demand for small business loans. Congressional interest in small businesses reflects, in part, concerns about economic growth and unemployment. Small businesses, defined as having fewer than 500 employees, have played an important role in net employment growth during previous economic recoveries. However, recent data show that net employment growth at small businesses is not increasing at the same rate as in previous economic recoveries. Some have argued that current economic conditions make it imperative that the federal government provide additional resources to assist small businesses in acquiring capital necessary to start, continue, or expand operations and create jobs. Others worry about the long-term adverse economic effects of spending programs that increase the federal deficit.

Degas And The Business Of Art

RRP $281.99

Edgar Degas's painting entitled A Cotton Office in New Orleans is one of the most significant images of nineteenth-century capitalism, in part because it was the first painting by an Impressionist to be purchased by a museum. Drawing upon archival materials, Marilyn R. Brown explores the accumulated social meanings of the work in light of shifting audiences and changing market conditions and assesses the artist's complicated relationship to the business of art.Despite the financial failure of the actual cotton firm he represented, Degas carefully constructed his picture with a particular buyer a British textile manufacturer in mind. However, world events, including an international stock market crash and declines in the market for cotton and art, destroyed his hopes for this sale. It was under these circumstances that the canvas was exhibited in the second Impressionist show in Paris in 1876. While it received a more positive response than other works exhibited, its success was with the conservative audience. After considerable difficulty, Degas finally succeeded in selling the painting in 1878 to the newly founded museum in the city of Pau. The painting was probably regarded as an appropriate homage to the old textile manufacturing family who funded its purchase. It also appealed to "progressive" provincial and more cosmopolitan audiences in Pau. The picture's scattered form and atomized figures in which some interpreters today read evidence of the artist's own ambivalence about capitalism seemingly contributed to its "innovative" cachet in Pau. But the private and public meanings of the painting had shifted, in discontinuous fashion, between its production and consumption. Under the circumstances, Degas's unfixed and even mixed messages about business became, among other things, his most successful (if unwitting) marketing strategy. The official recognition Degas received in Pau in 1878 heralded the gradual upswing of his own financial status during the 1880s, but his attitudes towards success remained mixed."
