12 Books For the Busy CEO Tonight (Mon Dec-11-2006) @ SDForum

12 Books For the Busy CEO: spend an hour and leave with a summary of key marketing insights and some rules of thumb for successful innovation in Silicon Valley. You might even identify one or two books that you haven’t read that will be worth your time over the Christmas holidays. I will cover twelve books that form the basis for conventional wisdom in Silicon Valley for marketing discontinuous or disruptive products.

I’ve enjoyed chairing the Marketing SIG for 2006 with K. V. Rao (we actually started work in October 2005 planning for our first program in January 2006: “DotCom to DotBust to Web 2.0” with David Thompson).

After tonight we turn over our duties to two capable new chairs: Ed Buckingham and Filomena U. Please come to December meeting and offer them your suggestions and assistance on programs for 2007.

Update: feedback on the talk is here and pdf of the slides
