Best Business Books 2010

I picked up a copy of Booz &Co's strategy+business. Great magazine, and with the holidays around the corner, Best Business Books 2010 provided more than just gift ideas. These intelligently written reviews of books on Leadership, Innovation, Human Capital, the Economy, China, and Biography & History managed to parlay succinct pearls of wisdom into 40 pages, covering 33 books. 

For example, writing about "The Power of Pull" (a book describing a new paradigm enabled by an unprecedented acceleration in technology that can be highly profitable if harnessed correctly) :

"Social interaction is a critical factor in the generation of ideas, but innovation is more than creativity. Innovation is the process of transforming new ideas into tangible societal impact.... An idea is not an innovation unless it is adopted and scaled, and the innovator's ability to harness society in this quest can either make or break the idea." --- or stated in a consumer business context, it's not enough to be creative and create demand with your customer, you have to be innovative to align your team and harvest that demand.

The M-commerce challenge

17% of Americans use smartphones today, and this number is projected to grow to 74% in 2014. In just three years, 50% will use smartphones for shopping. Give customers an enjoyable, rewarding, and inventive channel in which to purchase your products and increase their loyalty. If that goal remains firmly in sight, your mobile application will become as ingrained in your customers as a 50-year-old catalog or a 10-year-old website. Click here
