From pandemics to populism, new weapons to the rise of artificial intelligence, and gaping inequalities to climate change, humanity faces unprecedented challenges that threaten our very existence. In FRAMERS: Human Advantage in an Age of Technology and Turmoil, the authors offer a reason to be optimistic: humans have a unique ability to frame—or think in mental models—and so come up with solutions that meet our moment in history.

To frame is to make a mental model that enables us to see patterns, predict how things will unfold, and make sense of new situations. Frames guide the decisions we make and the results we attain. People have long focused on traits like memory and reasoning leaving framing all but ignored. But with computers becoming better at some of those cognitive tasks, framing stands out as a critical function—and only humans can do it. This book is the first guide to mastering this innate human ability.
Framers shows how framing is not just a way to improve how we make decisions in the era of algorithms—but why it will be a matter of survival for humanity in a time of societal upheaval and machine prosperity.

Luxury is as old as humankind and has sparked multiple debates throughout of history. In today’s consumer society, luxury brands have become aspirational symbols. Yet, to date, a comprehensive overview of the different perspectives that have shaped the discourses about luxury is missing. Hannes Gurzki provides a broad overview of luxury research, highlights and details important perspectives on luxury, and derives practical guidelines for managers based on research. Thereby the author combines insights from different disciplines, such as philosophy, sociology, psychology, anthropology, cultural studies, economics or management, to broaden and deepen our understanding of luxury and its creation principles.

Decentralised energy supply turns from a niche product into a mass phenomenon – not only with the rise of renewable energies such as solar, wind or biomass, but also with micro co-generation, residential storage and autonomous island systems. The edited volume “Decentralised Energy – a Global Game Changer“ portrays the transformation of energy supply into a decentralised structure from two angles: governance and business model innovation, with governments and entrepreneurs as two complementary “agents of change”.

Besides becoming more complex, destructive, and coercive, military cyber threats are now ubiquitous, and it is difficult to imagine a future conflict that would not have a cyber dimension.
This book presents the proceedings of CYDEF2018, a collaborative workshop between NATO and Japan, held in Tokyo, Japan, from 3 – 6 April 2018 under the umbrella of the NATO Science for Peace and Security Programme. It is divided into 3 sections: policy and diplomacy; operations and technology; and training and education, and covers subjects ranging from dealing with an evolving cyber threat picture to maintaining a skilled cyber workforce.
The book serves as a unique reference for some of the most pressing challenges related to the implementation of effective cyber defense policy at a technical and operational level, and will be of interest to all those working in the field of cybersecurity.

Luck, management success,
Case studies of business and management success tend to focus on factors such as leadership, innovation, competition, and geography, but what about good fortune? This book highlights luck as a key idea for business and society.

The author provides insights from economics, sociology, political science, philosophy, and psychology to create a brief intellectual history of luck. In positioning luck as a key idea in management, the book analyzes various facets of fortune such as randomness, serendipity, and opportunity. Often overlooked given psychological bias toward meritocratic explanations, this book quantifies luck to establish the idea in a more central role in understanding variations in business performance.

In bringing the concept of luck in from the periphery, this concise book is a readable overview of management which will help students, scholars, and reflective practitioners see the subject in a new light.

This book is a collection of challenging cases in executive coaching from the annals of the ESMT-Berlin Coaching Colloquia - yearly events for experienced professionals committed to advancement of the coaching profession. In the period of 2009-2018, hundreds of difficult cases were discussed by coaches from all over the world in an intensive but safe environment of the ESMT Berlin Campus. This volume presents a few of those cases to the interested public and offers a unique opportunity to explore the work of coaches from within and to reflect upon ways professionals approach ambiguous moments in their practice. The cases do not serve the purpose to endorse or critique a particular coaching choice, but rather give the reader an opportunity to think about their own ways of handling professional challenges in coaching engagements. The book can be an exciting self-development tool or instructional material for courses in coaching training or supervision.
