In the ever-changing world of business, we've arrived at a point where process has trumped culture, where the race toward efficiency has left us unable to reach our potential. Stuck in the land of status quo, we've forgotten how to think. The very structures put in place to help businesses grow are now holding us back;; it's time to Kill the Company. This book is a call to arms: to start a revolution in how we think and work. But instead of more one-size-fits-all change initiatives forced upon employees, we need to embrace small changes that create ripple effects throughout the organization. Lisa Bodell urges companies to move from "Zombies, Inc." to "Think, Inc." Thinking can no longer be exclusive to the creative team or lead strategists. A culture of curiosity must be fostered among the ranks to shake up our standard practices, from unproductive meetings to go-nowhere strategic planning. This revolution can and will awaken our ability to think, and ultimately, to innovate and grow.

***WINNER OF THE GOLD DAGGER AWARD FOR CRIME NON-FICTION*** Dennis Nilsen, who died in May 2018, murdered at least 15 people before his arrest in 1983. This groundbreaking criminal study of his killings was written with Nilsen's full cooperation, resulting in a fascinating - and horrifying - portrait of the man who worshipped death. On February 9th 1983 Dennis Nilsen was arrested at his Muswell Hill home, after human remains had been identified as the cause of blocked drains. 'Are we talking about one body or two,' a detective asked. Nilsen replied 'Fifteen or sixteen, since 1978. I'll tell you everything.' Within days he had confessed to fifteen gruesome murders over a period of four years. His victims, all young homosexual men, had never been missed. Brian Masters, with Nilsen's full cooperation, has produced a unique study of a murderer's mind, essential reading for true crime aficionados.

Essay from the year 2009 in the subject Communications - Public Relations, Advertising, Marketing, Social Media, grade: A, Ohio University (E.W. Scripps School of Journalism), course: International and Crosscultural Advertising, language: English, abstract: What started as one of the biggest and most expensive campaigns in the German automobile industry, almost ended in a disaster for the company. The result was the biggest crisis, a German automobile company had ever faced. Mercedes-Benz is a high-class automobile company. Its products stand for luxury, reliability and dependability. But high-class cars are expensive and only affordable for the richer part of society. To keep pace with the fast developing automobile industry all over the world, Mercedes-Benz decided to invent car that reunites all three values, the company embraces. This car - the Mercedes-Benz A-Class - should have another important feature: It is affordable for the middle class. With this car, Mercedes was approaching a new market segment and therefore new target audiences. A campaign, that fits the new car in the overall Mercedes image, was crucial. In May 1996 Mercedes Benz started its huge advertising campaign - almost one and a half years prior to the official product launch on October 18th 1997. More than 100 million Euro will this launching campaign cost the company. Despite that the campaign only ran in the European market, the Mercedes-Benz brand and this specific campaign caught international attention. Newspapers from all over the world accompanied the A-Class until its official launch. These newspapers were also there, when the crisis occurred, that almost harmed the company on a long-term basis. Right after the launch, the car, that was supposed to be innovative, reliable and safe, failed in the so called "moose-test." After almost two years of positive media coverage, a flood of criticism followed. Due to the high level of awareness for the car, the public was n

Rape, murder, stalking not in the violent streets of a seething metropolis, but in the corridors of a major corporation in a sleepy Southern setting.

Company Inc is a mystery, a Whodunit. Someone is out to get Jack Enright, who runs an Employee Assistance Program for SEPCO, a large southern multi-state electric utility. The story begins with Enright becoming involved in the case of an employee who was raped; she charges she was raped by a top company executive at a company function! In the course of trying to arrange help for the woman, Jack discovers that the executive has been transferred to corporate headquarters out of state; that various people connected to the situation are being stalked, and one actually killed; and that his own status with the company is threatened. Finally it becomes clear to Jack that it is his very life that is being threatened. After the second attempt on his life, Jack and his wife are forced into hiding until the new company head offers Jack a separation with a large severance package. Believing they are no longer threatened, they take a final romantic trip to their favorite oceanfront fishing area, only to have the murderer follow them in one last attempt to kill Jack.

The 90th Texas Oklahoma Division was nick-named The Tough Ombres. The men wore a T/O patch on their shoulders. But it was anything but tough when it hit Utah Beach and tried to move inland. Taking terrible casualties and making stupid mistakes, the Division was called the worst on the continent by top brass. Charles Sarge Goodson, a farm kid from Childress, Texas, came to the 90th Division as another green replacement. He was intensely proud of the Tough Ombres. But both Charles and the 90th Division had some fast growing up to do if they were going to survive.
