THE classic work about improving creativity from world-renowned writer and philosopher Edward de Bono. In schools we are taught to meet problems head-on: what Edward de Bono calls 'vertical thinking'. This works well in simple situations - but we are at a loss when this approach fails. What then? Lateral thinking is all about freeing up your imagination. Through a series of special techniques, in groups or working alone, Edward de Bono shows how to stimulate the mind in new and exciting ways. Soon you will be looking at problems from a variety of angles and offering up solutions that are as ingenious as they are effective. You will become much more productive and a formidable thinker in your own right. 'If more bankers and traders had read Lateral Thinking and applied the ideas of Edward de Bono to their own narrow definitions of risk, reward and human expectations, I suspect we would be in much better shape than we are'Sir Richard Branson Edward de Bono invented the concept of lateral thinking. A world-renowned writer and philosopher, he is the leading authority in the field of creative thinking and the direct teaching of thinking as a skill. Dr de Bono has written more than 60 books, in 40 languages, with people now teaching his methods worldwide. He has chaired a special summit of Nobel Prize laureates, and been hailed as one of the 250 people who have contributed most to mankind.

In SMARTCUTS nimmt der New Yorker Journalist Shane Snow das unkonventionelle Verhalten diverser Overachiever der Geschichte unter die Lupe: Menschen und Unternehmen, die in unwahrscheinlich kurzer Zeit unglaubliche Dinge zuwege bringen. Und er zeigt, wie jeder von uns mit »Smartcuts« seine Gewohnheiten überdenken und seinen Erfolg beschleunigen kann. Warum ziehen manche Unternehmen in wenigen Monaten Millionen Kunden an, während andere floppen? Wie schafften es Alexander der Große, YouTube-Phänomen Michelle Phan und Tonight-Show-Moderator Jimmy Fallon, sich in kürzerer Zeit an die Spitze zu katapultieren, als die meisten von uns auf die nächste bescheidene Gehaltserhöhung warten müssen? Wie setzen sich schnell wachsende Unternehmen, Weltklasse-Herzchirurgen und Underdog-Vermarkter von der Masse ab? In allen Bereichen gibt es Querdenker, die wie Computerhacker neue und bessere Wege finden, um Erstaunliches zu bewerkstelligen. Seit jeher werden die größten Erfolge von jenen Menschen errungen, die sich weigern, den ausgetretenen Pfaden zu folgen, und sich über die Norm hinwegsetzen. In SMARTCUTS widerlegt Snow so manches vermeintliches Erfolgsrezept; er zeigt, warum es zwecklos ist, die »Mühlen zu durchlaufen«, warum Schulkinder keine Multiplikationstabellen auswendig zu lernen brauchen und warum es einfacher ist, ein großes anstelle eines kleinen Unternehmens aufzubauen. SMARTCUTS berichtet von Innovatoren, die es gewagt haben, anders zu arbeiten, und bietet Ihnen praktische Tipps. Sie lernen, wie Sie unternehmerische und technologische Begriffe auf den Erfolg anwenden können und wie auch Sie durch Nachahmung Ihren Wettbewerbern den Rang ablaufen, Ihr Unter nehmen wachsen lassen und Gesellschaftsprobleme schneller lösen können, als Sie es für möglich gehalten hätten.

Edward de Bono invented the term lateral thinking and defined it as such: "1.You cannot dig a hole in a different place by digging the same hole deeper. 2.Lateral Thinking is for changing concepts and perceptions instead of trying harder with the same concepts and perceptions. 3.In self-organizing information systems, asymmetric patterns are formed; Lateral Thinking is a method for cutting across from one pattern to another." As the title of this book, Lateral Thinking refers to the non-traditional approach that the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego, has applied to building its collection. Curatorially independent, striking a balance between the regional and the global, the emerging artist and the established figure, the MCA has always worked to represent important developments in mainstream art while also identifying significant developments that fall outside of conventional categories. The museum's efforts to illuminate a new axis mapping the contemporary art world -- one running north and south through North, Central, and South America instead of east and west through the United States and Europe. Featuring the work, in virtually all media, of more than 65 artists including Matthew Barney, Jose Bedia, Vanessa Beecroft, John Currin, David Hammons, Gary Hill, Gabriel Orozco, Edward Ruscha, Cindy Sherman, and Lisa Yuskavage.
