KShs2,500.00 KShs1,800.00
This is the book that shows you why you should throw away your motivation speaker off the window and get everything practically done. The book uses hundreds of failure and success cases from top performing careers, startups, and major investments of the 21st century. It gives you practical, social, emotional, and psychological guidelines to take you through from idea formulation, preparation, psychological execution, overcoming, and living beyond mere success. Stop getting comfortable with small things. Low grade careers, low performances, and living in self-limited spaces. It is all in your brain and how you get it done. Not how well you keep meditating, imagining, and reasoning. Prodigious system investments hold the greatest growth secret to financial freedom. I choose to show you and guide you with working philosophies, financial and capitalism secrets, deep work systems, tough routines, burning bridges, and conquering endless excuses that you always entertain. Don’t get comfortable in shallow work, shallow thinking, and the old shackles of cultures; you are a limit to what you want and self-set capabilities through whatever you permit. It is not motivation; it is a practical mentorship guide to make you a finisher. Life rewards finishers. We have to do it in the toughest of all times without bureaucratic fears. Learn how to craft it and practically get it done.

The Winning Strategy by Dr Mary Mugo

KShs2,500.00 KShs2,000.00
One of the keys to organizational success is strategic positioning in the market in which the organization operates, with the aim of gaining a competitive advantage. A fish will eventually die if it is out of the water and a bird thrown in water cannot fly, hence the need for any organization to understand the environment in which it operates, formulate winning strategies and achieve above-average returns. This book systematically and practically explains the process of strategic planning from crafting mission, vision, and objectives to how an organization can analyze its internal and external environment and competitors. The book discusses how an organization can effectively formulate, implement, evaluate, and monitor its strategies. An organization that drifts through without any plan has no future and is likely to die or not earn above-average returns. This is an easy-to-read book with relevant practical exercises at the end of every chapter to help the reader fully understand and apply the lessons learned. This book will help any organization to know where they are, where they are going, and how to get there because doing the wrong thing efficiently has no eventual benefit to the organization.

Sprint: How to Solve Big Problems and...

KShs2,500.00 KShs1,799.00
Brief Summary From three design partners at Google Ventures, a unique five-day process for solving tough problems using design, prototyping, and testing ideas with customers. The startups that Google Ventures invest in face big questions every day: Where’s the most important place to focus your effort, and how do you start? What will your ideas look like in real life? How many meetings and discussions does it take before you can be sure you have the right solution to a problem? Business owners and investors want their companies and the people who lead them to be equipped to answer these questions—and quickly. And now there’s a sure-fire way to solve their problems and test solutions: the sprint. While working at Google, designer Jake Knapp created a unique problem-solving method that he coined a “design sprint”—a five-day process to help companies answer crucial questions. His ‘sprints’ were used on everything from Google Search to Chrome to Google X. When he moved to Google Ventures, he joined Braden Kowitz and John Zeratsky, both designers and partners there who worked on products like YouTube and Gmail. Together Knapp, Zeratsky, and Kowitz have run over 100 sprints with their portfolio companies. They’ve seen firsthand how sprints can overcome challenges in all kinds of companies: healthcare, fitness, finance, retailers, and more. A practical guide to answering business questions, Sprint is a book for groups of any size, from small startups to Fortune 100s, from teachers to non-profits. It’s for anyone with a big opportunity, problem, or idea who needs to get answers today.

Brief Summary How to Innovate and Execute Leaders already know that innovation calls for a different set of activities, skills, methods, metrics, mind-sets, and leadership approaches. And it is well understood that creating a new business and optimizing an already existing one are two fundamentally different management challenges. The real problem for leaders is doing both, simultaneously. How do you meet the performance requirements of the existing business—one that is still thriving—while dramatically reinventing it? How do you envision a change in your current business model before a crisis forces you to abandon it? Innovation guru Vijay Govindarajan expands the leader’s innovation tool kit with a simple and proven method for allocating the organization’s energy, time, and resources—in balanced measure—across what he calls “the three boxes”: • Box 1: The present—Manage the core business at peak profitability • Box 2: The past—Abandon ideas, practices, and attitudes that could inhibit innovation • Box 3: The future—Convert breakthrough ideas into new products and businesses The three-box framework makes leading innovation easier because it gives leaders a simple vocabulary and set of tools for managing and measuring these different sets of behaviors and activities across all levels of the organization. Supported with rich company examples—GE, Mahindra & Mahindra, Hasbro, IBM, United Rentals, and Tata Consultancy Services—and testimonies of leaders who have successfully used this framework, this book solves once and for all the practical dilemma of how to align an organization on the critical but competing demands of innovation.

Lakhani show how reinventing the firm around data, analytics, and AI removes traditional constraints on scale, scope, and learning that have restricted business growth for hundreds of years.

Packed with examples--including many from the most powerful and innovative global, AI-driven competitors--and based on research in hundreds of firms across many sectors, this is your essential guide for rethinking how your firm competes and operates in the era of AI.

The Future of War A History by Lawren...

KShs1,899.00 KShs1,599.00
Brief Summary In 1912, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, creator of Sherlock Holmes, wrote a short story about a war fought from underwater submersibles that included the sinking of passenger ships. At the time, it was dismissed by the British generals and admirals of the day not because the idea of submarines was technically unfeasible, but because no one could imagine that any nation would be so depraved as to sink civilian merchant ships. The future of war more often than not surprises us less because of some fantastic technical or engineering dimension but because of some human, political, or moral threshold that we had never imagined wanting to cross. As Lawrence Freedman shows, the future of war has a past and a present. Ideas of war, strategies for warfare and its practice, and organizing principles of war all have rich and varied origins which have shaped the minds of those who conceive the next war. Freedman shows how war can be studied systematically and empirically to provide a firm foundation for enlightened policy. The Future of War—which covers civil wars to as yet unknown nuclear conflicts, proxy wars (real) to the Cold War (not), fashionably small wars to the War to End All Wars (it didn’t)—is filled with insight and fascinating nuggets of military history and culture from one of the most brilliant military and strategic historians of his generation.

Your Strategy Needs a Strategy: How to Choose and Execute the Right Approach. You think you have a winning strategy. But do you? Executives are bombarded with bestselling ideas and best practices for achieving competitive advantage, but many of these ideas and practices contradict each other. Should you aim to be big or fast? Should you create a blue ocean, be adaptive, play to win—or forget about a sustainable competitive advantage altogether? In a business environment that is changing faster and becoming more uncertain and complex almost by the day, it's never been more important—or more difficult—to choose the right approach to strategy. In this book, The Boston Consulting Group's Martin Reeves, Knut Haanæs, and Janmejaya Sinha offer a proven method to determine the strategy approach that is best for your company. They start by helping you assess your business environment: how unpredictable it is, how much power you have to change it, and how harsh it is—a critical component of getting strategy right. They show how existing strategy approaches sort into five categories—Be Big, Be Fast, Be First, Be the Orchestrator, or simply Be Viable—depending on the extent of predictability, malleability, and harshness. In-depth explanations of each of these approaches will provide critical insight to help you match your approach to strategy to your environment, determine when and how to execute each one, and avoid a potentially fatal mismatch. Addressing your most pressing strategic challenges, you'll be able to answer questions such as: • What replaces planning when the annual cycle is obsolete? • When can we—and when should we—shape the game to our advantage? • How do we simultaneously implement different strategic approaches for different business units? • How do we manage the inherent contradictions in formulating and executing different strategies across multiple businesses and geographies? Until now, no book has brought it all together and offered a practical tool for understanding which strategic approach to apply. Get started today.
