The cell phone has achieved a global presence faster than any other form of information and communication technology. A global multibillion dollar industry, this small, mundane device is now an intrinsic part of our everyday lives.

This communications medium has had an immense social and cultural impact and continues to evolve. Talking, texting, photographing, videoing, connecting to a network of other media-the cell phone now seems essential. But beyond the ways in which it has actively restructured our daily lives, the cell phone has changed our sense of ourselves and the way we see the world. The relationship between public and private space, how we view time and space, how we rely on and negotiate social networks-all are increasingly centered on this small piece of technology.

Mobile Communications presents a succinct, challenging, and accessible overview of the transformations and challenges presented by this most personal, yet most overlooked, technology.


The New HowThe New How: Creating Business Solutions Through Collaborative Strategy

Management gurus have always said that "people matter." But those same gurus still relegate strategy to an elite set of executives who focus on frameworks, long presentations, and hierarchical approaches. Business strategy typically has been planned by corporate chiefs in annual meetings and then dictated to managers to carry out. The New How turns that notion on its head. After many years of working with Apple, Adobe, HP, and many other companies, Nilofer Merchant discovered the secret sauce: The best way to create a winning strategy is to include employees at all levels, helping to create strategy they not only believe in but are also equipped to implement.

In The New How, Merchant shows today's corporate directors, executives, and managers how they can transform their traditional, top-down approach to strategy planning and execution into collaborative "stratecution," which has proven to be significantly more effective.
