The Codfathers: Lessons from the Atlantic Business Elite by Gordon Pitts

The_codfathers_2
Around the globe, Canadian business leaders are known for their effective management style: patient, polite, often undemonstrative, they are great networkers and deeply committed to operations. What are the roots of this management style, and how did it become the gold standard for Canadian business leaders?

Based on in-depth interviews with Maritime business leaders, The Atlantic Connection provides a window on the notoriously secretive world of the Irvings, the McCains, the Sobeys, and other business tycoons. It examines the power networks built around former New Brunswick premier, Frank McKenna, who is now bringing the Maritime Mafia into the corridors of power in Washington, D.C. This export of entrepreneurial talent from the Maritimes is one of corporate Canada’s best-kept secrets.

BizzWords: From Ad Creep to Zero Drag, a Guide to Today’s Emerging Vocabulary by Gregory Bergman

Bizzwords
There’s language . . . and then there is the language of business. In today’s offices, you’re as likely to hear kitchen-sinked or ticker shock as capitalization and balance sheet. With the international marketplace and the prevalence of text messaging, the vocabulary of business is constantly evolving. This evolution has left many a step behind, wondering:

    * Should you blush if your boss tells you to put some pants on it?
    * Could you be fired for frazzing?
    * What’s the correct reaction to a bozo explosion?
    * How does a dot snot act around the office?

You will find answers to these questions and more in BizzWords, defining the new buzzwords of business. Written in a sophisticated and slightly irreverent style, BizzWords is an engaging guide to today’s essential, edgy business terms and expressions.

Vulcans, Earthlings and Marketing ROI: Getting Finance, Marketing and Advertising onto the Same Planet by David Rutherford & Jonathan Knowles

Vulcans_earthlings_and_marketing_ro
Every few years, business is galvanized by a new concept. Accountability is the latest idea in the spotlight. It’s a huge topic, and in the broadest sense embraces ethics, corporate governance, and all the issues spawned by the recent spate of business scandals. Vulcans, Earthlings and Marketing ROI deals with a more pragmatic aspect: the accountability behind the question “Are our investments in marketing and advertising sensible and successful, short and long term, from a business point of view?”
