Corporate Innovation in the Fifth Era:Lessons from Alphabet/Google, Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Microsoft Matthew C. Le Merle, Alison Davis
Over the last 30 years a host of new technologies have begun to change every industry, driving us into a new era of human existence. The companies who have been most able to tap into these new innovations have become the most highly valued companies in the world. To do so, they have created a new approach to corporate innovation. In Corporate Innovation in the Fifth Era, Silicon Valley insiders Matthew C. Le Merle and Alison Davis share the lessons they have learned from two decades of interaction with Alphabet, Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Microsoft as well as other leading companies. The authors describe this new approach so that every company can be ready as we enter the Fifth Era. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Simon Phillips.

It may be hard to believe in an era of Walmart, Citizens United, and the Koch brothers, but corporations are on the decline. The number of American companies listed on the stock market dropped by half between 1996 and 2012. In recent years we´ve seen some of the most storied corporations go bankrupt (General Motors, Chrysler, Eastman Kodak) or disappear entirely (Bethlehem Steel, Lehman Brothers, Borders). Gerald Davis argues this is a root cause of the income inequality and social instability we face today. Corporations were once an integral part of building the middle class. He points out that in their heyday, they offered millions of people lifetime employment, stable career paths, health insurance, and retirement pensions. They were like small, private welfare states. The businesses that are replacing them will not fill the same role. For one thing, they employ far fewer people - the combined global workforces of Facebook, Yelp, Zynga, LinkedIn, Zillow, Tableau, Zulily, and Box are smaller than the number of people who lost their jobs when Circuit City was liquidated in 2009. And in the ´´sharing economy´´, companies have no obligation to most of the people who work for them - at the end of 2014 Uber had over 160,000 ´´driver-partners´´ in the United States but recognized only about 2,000 people as actual employees. Davis tracks the rise of the large American corporation and the economic, social, and technological developments that have led to its decline. The future could see either increasing economic polarization, as careers turn into jobs and jobs turn into tasks, or a more democratic economy built from the grass roots. It´s up to us. 1.

Our brains evolved to solve the survival problems of our Stone Age ancestors, so when faced with modern-day situations that are less extreme, they often encounter a mismatch. Our primitive brains put us on the wrong foot by responding to stimuli that - in prehistoric times - would have prompted behaviour that was beneficial. If you´ve ever felt an anxious fight-or-flight response to a presenting at a board meeting, equivalent to facing imminent death by sabre-toothed tiger, then you have experienced a mismatch. Mismatch is about the clash between our biology and our culture. It is about the dramatic contrast between the first few million years of human history - when humans lived as hunters and gatherers in small-scale societies - and the past 12,000 years following the agricultural revolution which have led us to comfortable lives in a very different social structure. Has this rapid transition been good for us? How do we, using our primitive minds, try to survive in a modern information society that radically changes every 10 years or so? Ronald Giphart and Mark van Vugt show that humans have changed their environment so drastically that the chances for mismatch have significantly increased, and these conflicts can have profound consequences. Reviewed through mismatch glasses, social, societal, and technological trends can be better understood, ranging from the popularity of Facebook and Internet porn to the desire for cosmetic surgery to our attitudes towards refugees. Mismatches can also affect our physical and psychological well-being, in terms of our attitudes to happiness, physical exercise, choosing good leaders, or finding ways to feel better at home or work. Finally, Mismatch gives us an insight into politics and policy which could enable governments, institutions and businesses to create an environment better suited to human nature, its potential and its constraints. This audiobook is about converting mismatch... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Roger Davis. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/twuk/001479/bk_twuk_001479_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
After Eric Davis spent over 16 years in the military, including a decade in the SEAL teams, his family was more than used to his absence on deployments and secret missions that could obscure his whereabouts for months at a time. Without a father figure in his own life since the age of 15, Eric was desperate to maintain the bonds he´d fought so hard to forge when his children were young - particularly with his son, Jason, because he knew how difficult it was to face the challenge of becoming a man on one´s own. Unfortunately Eric learned the hard way that quality time doesn´t always show up in quantity time. Facebook, television, phones, video games, school, jobs, friends - they all got in the way of a real, meaningful father-son relationship. It was time to take action. As a SEAL, Eric learned to innovate and push boundaries, allowing him to function at levels beyond what was expected, comfortable, ordinary, and even imaginable, and he knew that as a father he needed to do the same with his son. Meeting extreme with extreme was the only answer. Using a unique blend of discipline, leadership, adventure, and grace, Eric and his SEAL brothers will teach you how to connect and reconnect with your sons and learn how to raise real men - the Navy SEAL way. 1.

What is Planet Lazy? None of the scientists have heard of it, and there´s no record of it ever existing. Yet people swear that they´ve been there. One day, they vanished from Earth and wound up in a place where everything they´d ever wanted came on a silver platter, and there was no urgency to do anything, you know, productive. Join the fat, socially awkward, will-probably-die-a-virgin Karturian as he navigates our strange universe of anorexic giants, diplomatic zombies, talking cats, a whole planet of women who have never seen a man before, and much, much more on his voyage to the mythical Planet Lazy. What is the answer to 7 + 7 ÷ 7 + 7 x 7 - 7 = ? How do you hide cigarette smoke from your parents? Does Cheese Whiz go better with pancakes or waffles? What are cats REALLY thinking? How do you become a quadrillionaire by cutting your work in half and using Facebook likes? What do you do if you´re out in space and really have to use the bathroom? ...just a few of life´s more pertinent questions that Karturian hopes to answer on his journey. Hilarious, surreal, unpredictable, fun, and strangely moving at times, this social satire is The Hitchhiker´s Guide to the Galaxy meets Kilgore Trout and Venus on the Half-Shell. Planet Lazy throws modern-day issues and news topics into a comedic food processor and spits them out into a scrumptious sci-fi pate. The topics include eating disorders, low birthrate, cell cryopreservation, patriarchal and matriarchal societies, intercultural relationships, global warming, unethical technological and medical advancements, volunteering in impoverished nations, free-range farming, the robot apocalypse, lazy entrepreneurship, and everyone´s obsession with cats! 1.
