Creative Strategy Generation: Using Passion and Creativity t

From the Back Cover:

Praise for Creative Strategy Generation

 

 

“Mixing traditional marketing acumen and understanding with the creative process of songwriting, Bob encapsulates how the two worlds of business and music can provide the storytelling tools that help shape a solid business strategy. This book is incredibly informational and entertaining to see the parallels between art and the fundamentals of business.”

 

-          Bill Richards, VP Marketing, Sony Music Entertainment

 

 

“Caporale effectively invokes the mindset and language of the artist ? the canvas, melodies, and story arcs ? to create a highly practical toolkit that will be especially useful for practitioners looking to compose product and business unit-level strategy.”

 

-          Sean Gallagher, Chief Strategy Officer, Northeastern University Global Network

 

 

Creative Strategy Generation provides a fresh new look at the topic of strategy. Using his passion for music as the starting point, Bob Caporale provides us with a step-by-step guide for infusing much-needed creativity into the strategic planning process. A must read for anyone seeking to add more value to their products or brands!”

 

-          John Gerzema, New York Times Best-Selling Author, Social Strategist, and Leadership Consultant

 

 

 “Bob Caporale composes a book on strategy that is influenced by and extends classic strategic frameworks by infusing his own passion to create an easily accessible read that will be sure to have you singing along!”

 

-          Kevin D. Rooney, Former Chief Strategy Officer, American Access Casualty Co.

 

 

“I worked in Product Management and Strategy for most of my career, and I wish I had this book to revert back to during annual planning meetings and product launches. Bob has laid out strategy planning in a very easy to follow story book. I know I will share this methodology with my colleagues and can’t wait to use it for my next strategy plan!”

 

-          Cheryl Nash, President, Fiserv Investment Services

 

“Mr. Caporale presents a compelling model, blending the expressiveness of art with the objectivity of strategy. A thought-provoking approach, keeping the customer perspective in the forefront and providing a dose of reality throughout.”

 

-          Steve Thompson, VP Business Strategy, National Oilwell Varco

 

 

“As a founder of a high-growth startup with no pre-existing roadmap to follow, I appreciate the way that Bob demystifies the strategy process and gives us specific and practical tools for creating our own unique product and market strategies. Most strategy books point to high-profile success stories and try to extract common themes for us to follow. But every success story contains a complex mix of ingredients that are hard to “bottle” for others to repeat. Bob’s process doesn’t rely upon the past but, rather, gives business practitioners real tools for building their own paths to success.”

 

-          Aaron Gowell, Chief Conductor, SilverRail Tech

 

 

“This book is music to my ears. It’s a great way for members of the C-Suite to help their teams develop their own symphonies of success! Bravo!”

 

-          Jeffrey Hayzlett, Primetime TV & Radio Host, Keynote Speaker, and Best-Selling Author

 

 

“Bob Caporale has greatly solidified his reputation as a “master strategist!” In Creative Strategy Generation, he utilizes his musical experience, talent, and insight to artfully craft a work that will resonate with simplicity, clarity, and meaning for the thousands of practitioners who will seek and find this book for what it is ? truly a gift!”

 

-          J. Barry Minatra, VP Business Development – North America, Larsen & Toubro Ltd.

 

 

“Bob Caporale’s Creative Strategy Generation reminds us that we are, first and foremost, creative beings. This book is a practical and insightful guide on how to tap into the artistic process in order to create strategic plans that are true works of art.”

 

-          Tania Castroverde Moskalenko, President/CEO, The Center for the Performing Arts

 

  

“Caporale’s latest work injects a refreshing and innovative twist to the process of developing business strategy. Through his impressively comprehensive comparison of music composition to business strategy development, Caporale makes a strong case for the necessity of moving beyond technical analysis and reaching deep for creative inspiration and improvisation to achieve the greatest business impact. For anyone who has ever picked up a musical instrument or simply enjoyed a memorable song, Caporale’s analogies will indelibly link the art and science of quality musical creation to that of transformational business strategy.”

 

-          Gerry Caron, Vice President of Innovation and Product Management, OtterBox

 

 

“Bob Caporale delivers the esoteric topic of creating strategy in bite-sized chunks using every day analogies, which makes it lively and easy to understand. Overall, this book has a great beat and is easy to dance to!”

 

         Christine Skatchke, VP, Director – Product Strategy

 

 

Creative Strategy Generation is a much-needed breath of fresh air. Applying the tools and constructs of music, storytelling, and other elements of artistic process shed new light on what strategy development can mean in an organization. Product managers will embrace the practicality of the tools but, moreover, realize that creativity is something we all possess and can tap into.”
