9780814473863: Coolhunting: Chasing Down the Next Big Thing

What do the iPod, MySpace, and YouTube all have in common? They're fresh, they're sexy, and most importantly -- they're cool. But while many companies embark on the eternal quest for the next big thing, very few know how to actually find it. Coolhunting will take readers into the very heart of the search and show them how to find trendsetters, spot innovations, and turn brilliant ideas into hot new trends. Major companies like Starbucks and Proctor & Gamble have already discovered the power of coolhunting. Now, anyone can learn how to:

* tap into the "Tao of Cool" and identify the trends that are truly cutting-edge

* cultivate the skills and techniques of highly effective coolhunters

* pinpoint developing trends on the Internet by using "smartbadges

An invaluable tool for businesses of all sizes, Coolhunting will show leaders how to stay ahead of the curve and on the cutting edge of where their customers want to be taken.

From the Back Cover:

"In this cool book, Gloor and Cooper not only define that pattern of elements and states we simply call "cool," they also teach us how to find (or even create) that which is cool and, ultimately, how to do it "coolly" - sharing power, and capitalizing on the newly enabled and tightly connected swarm of human minds."--Alpheus Bingham, Founder and Board Member, InnoCentive, Inc.

"At Procter & Gamble, we've fully embraced the idea that innovation can come from unlikely places, including the many ideas and talents that are well beyond the walls of our company. Our Connect+Develop initiative is a major engine of growth, consistently uncovering ideas that become valuable new products. Similarly, Coolhunting provides a practical framework to find innovators and innovations, giving readers a proven and tested method to become successful "coolhunters.""--Larry Huston, Vice President Innovation, Procter & Gamble

"Identifying what's cool and what's next has become a key to success in business. Coolhunting is a serious, disciplined approach to finding cool products, services, people, and ideas. I predict it will soon be hot."--Thomas H. Davenport, President's Distinguished Professor of Information Technology and Management, Babson College

Descrizione libro Amacom, United States, 2007. Mixed media product. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Coolhunting and swarm creativity are powerful concepts about identifying emerging trends and discovering the key trendsetters. They are about uncovering hidden innovation and innovators and they include the how and why new ideas and new knowledge are converted into products and services that correspond to the collective human mindset. Coolhunting involves making observations and predictions as part of the search for cutting-edge trends. It is a way of capturing what the collective mind is thinking, and using what is captured to one s advantage. For an example of this collective mind concept, on the television show Who Wants to be a Millionaire? , contestants unsure of the answer to a question had the option of asking the audience or phoning a so-called expert . Far more often than did the experts, the collective intelligence of the audience produced the correct answer.This is a simple example of swarm creativity. Humans swarm around like-minded people, with whom they not only feel comfortable but also can collaborate to produce winning ideas.The volume includes sidebars that expand concepts and present engaging anecdotes, as well as illustrations (charts, graphs, tables, and pictures) to help guide the reader through the explanations of concepts or simply to make for a more enjoyable read. The book includes many examples from history and from more recent business cases.Some of the examples are: how the CEO of Continental Airlines, participating in an online forum of frequent flyers, brought 200 of these people together in Houston at a dinner to discuss how the company could improve its services; how 10 research labs, collaborating globally to discover the causes of the SARS disease, were able to share newly acquired knowledge and achieve tremendous results very quickly; and, how Linux, an organization with no one officially in charge, became the only serious contender to the strictly hierarchical organization that developed Microsoft Windows.
