    About "David Butler Linda Tischler"

    1. David Butler Linda Tischler

      I, David Butler, grew up in a small farm town in Iowa Growing up I was very much against drugs My addiction started out with alcohol My second year of college is when I tried marijuana and was instantly addicted Not understanding addiction I tried other drugs.There was a history of alcoholism in my family Born in 1965 and growing up in the seventies, it was a time where people didn t talk about issues such as addiction It was just common place just pretend this evil, drug addiction, wasn t happening.During college I had tried mushrooms and cocaine but, weed was the drug I liked and needed When I moved to El Paso, Texas is when my cocaine addiction began Once again I didn t think I was addicted All I knew was my drug use and desire for drugs grew and I would snort cocaine and thought I was going to die many times.I couldn t understand why I couldn t stop using drugs Using drugs, I would basically try anything that came my way When I tried crack cocaine, I lost all control of life It was frightening the way it took over my whole self I got to the point where I didn t want to live any.In my darkest hours when I had lost all hope is when an amazing thing happened I saw the light of The Holy Spirit At the time I didn t know what I had witnessed, all I knew I was a different person The Lord, Jesus the Christ, the king of kings doesn t give up on us we turn our backs on him He loves sinners and that is why he died for us, because we are all sinners.It is my mission to bring hope to the hopeless My hope is that we as a people start talking about important issues as bullying, drug addiction, sexual abuse and violence We can t pretend like these things are not happening no matter how hard it is to face reality The thing is it s not going away no matter how much we pretend it s not happening Please start talking about these issues and we can begin breaking barriers and helping those that need help, healing and love If you have lost all hope as I did, I m here to tell you that there is hope

    1. There is so much that I want to learn from Coca Cola. None of that was in this book. No new concepts here if you've read a handful of books on start ups. :(


    2. Cuốn sách cho thấy một cái nhìn khác đằng sau những thiết kế, những tư duy đột phá và những chiến dịch quảng cáo thành công của đế chế Coca - Cola, đó là tinh thần không ngừng học hỏi và khuyến khích sự sáng tạo, mình cho rằng chính điều này đã giúp Coca - Cola đứng vững trong suốt 128 năm qua (theo cuốn sách, còn bây giờ đã là 130 năm rồi). Mình cũng rất thích quan điểm của David Butler v [...]


    3. Excellent comparison of past, present and future on Company DesignHolistic approach decoded on Scale and Agility


    4. Design is a very subjective topic, but this book does a brilliant job in simplifying the understanding of design. I clearly understand people who are looking to dive deep into the process of Coca Cola Company with its intricacies to scale into a billion dollar company may not quite find dope on those lines. But that is the point, coca cola is merely the premise, the author has focused on his ability to present a story where he provides a structure, a journey map to arrive at a place where brands [...]


    5. To sum it up, this book shows a round-up exemplary of how Coca Cola could make the most of its portfolio and assets, while in the same time pursue agility through relentless efforts in learning and develop their both tangible and intangible assets.I believe it is a good read for any start-ups and corporate facing their maturing phase.


    6. Good book to understand the locus of designExcellent opinion that design is not only for branding products but the entire systems of the company.Actual cases of application to the CocaCola system are not written.


    7. Interessante a forma de pensar o design como um reconhecimento de padrões e entender que as soluções nunca são isoladas, recomendo.


    8. Even today many people forget that there is more to the Coca-Cola Company than just the brown, fizzy drink that bears its name!It is the world’s largest beverage company with over 500 different brands, serving over 1.9 billion drinks each day in 200-plus countries. A lot of this growth is quite recent in terms of the company’s existence too! There has been a few bumps in the road along the way, and here a Coca-Cola insider lifts the curtain a smidgeon and shows how the company uses design to [...]


    9. This is a brilliant book written by a friend and someone I admire, David Butler. David is VP of Innovation and Entrepreneurship at Coca-Cola. Maybe you've heard of Coke? Whether you work for a large organization or have a dream to start your own business, Design to Grow provides great insights to help you grow and move forward. Here are some of my takeaways: * Design is about intentionally connecting things to solve problems. Design is only good if it solves a problem. Good design makes somethin [...]


    10. With Coca-Cola in the title of the book itself, this book got into my must read section. That the book is on the design process within the company and outside raised my curiosity and I immediately started reading this book on my pad.The world is no more as we knew it, so would say the old timers. For a 125 year old company like Coca-Cola many things have changed and evolved, except maybe for one thing – the uniquely great taste of Coca-Cola. Not many people know the complexity behind the power [...]


    11. Design to Grow: How Coca-Cola Learned to Combine Scale & Agility (and How You Can Too) by David Butler and Linda Tischler was chosen by Soundview Executive Book Summaries as one of the Top 30 Business Books of 2015E SOUNDVIEW OVERVIEW:In today’s ever-changing marketplace, every company is at risk of having a “Kodak Moment”— watching its industry and the competitive advantages it has developed over years, even decades, vanish overnight. The reason? An inability to adapt quickly to new [...]


    12. A stunning book written by the authors. The back drop of the story of Coca-Cola gave some inspiring and practical insights as to how the company transformed from startup to a billion dollar company. Design thinking played an integral role in relaying the developmental phases in which the company had to go through to stay relevant to the vagaries of the market. I can conclude that Design thinking is a mindset that we all have, we know when something works and doesn't; we can differentiate between [...]


    13. This is a quick and simple read and as such, I mostly skimmed. The best parts are David Butler's stories about specific examples of how Coke succeeded. For example, he talked about how in Japan, they successfully penetrated the water market by designing a bottle that was much more eco-friendly and compactible by examining space and waste issues in the marketplace. The bottle "went viral" and created separation in a commodity (water) business. David is quite earnest in his remarks and I think the [...]


    14. Great business book! A must-read for business managers. It talks about Agility vs Scale. A startup has agility, but it lacks scale. Walmart has scale, but it lacks agility. When building a business, the entrepreneur needs to constantly think about how to design the business so that it can be easily scale.I really liked the stories told about Coca-Cola's challenges, opportunities, and solutions to problems. I was fascinated by their growth strategy in South America. Having grown up in Ecuador, I [...]


    15. Although the book claims to be for everyone, I strongly felt it was targeted towards more senior executives. If you're already familiar with innovation strategy or the startup environment, this book adds little knowledge to your repertoire. To me, the case studies from Coca-Cola weren't inspiring enough to really find it worth the read. If you're a fan of coca-cola and fairly new to the startup world of "lean, agile, and design for scale", I can imagine this can be a great book for you. If you a [...]


    16. Decent book with some cool Coca Cola stories, but it didn't add anything new or even cover the existing ideas as well as all the other books on design that I've read. The single idea that's interesting is that organizations need to manage two independent variables: scale and agility. Seeing them as independent was cool. He didn't really say how to do it, though. He stayed theoretical.


    17. 2.5/5 - surprisingly ok! I liked the historical snippits about how Coca Cola worked, and the stories about solving design issues in various parts of the world (legibility of signage in indonesia, how to shelve coke in Brazil, etc.). Could be a bit meatier with -more- inside stories about coca cola's history, and less on the self-help book part, but not bad for a book of its kind.


    18. This book is big on sweeping generalities and light on substance. Many issues or are alluded to but very little how to is actually given. The best part of this book starts on page 201 and those are the recommended readings from other authors.


    19. For a big company to stay ahead of the market, it must be both scalable and agile. By continuously encouraging growth and adaptation through considered design and innovative systems, you’ll be well on your way to long-term success.


    20. Interesting stories from inside the Coca Cola company. How they build brand, operation, etc through modular method to scale in a very large number of countries.
