Marketing Research Professionals Top Business Books
Today’s data table from the Next Gen Market Research Trends Survey being released this Thursday, with over 855 market researchers responding, is below. I think we all know market researchers like to read. Well here are the top 13 business books:
|Good to Great|
|The Tipping Point|
|Blue Ocean Strategy|
|Who Moved My Cheese|
|The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People|
|How Customers Think|
|Made to Stick|
|The World is Flat|
|The Wisdom of Crowds|
Specifically the question was “What is your favorite business book?”.
Interestingly, during the past couple of years, I’ve also had the opportunity to work with and survey senior level marketing executives of MENG (Marketing Executives Networking Group). Therefore I took the liberty to compare and contrast the last MENG survey results to the NGMR results. As you can see there is quite a bit of overlap.
It looks like my fellow Next Gen Market Researchers need to read Positioning written by my friends Al Ries and Jack Trout. It is an excellent book for any research info positioning or brand differentiation.
I’m surprised that there’s nothing on the list about game theory. Next on my reading list is probably Blue Ocean Strategy, I’ve had it for a while but haven’t had a chance to read it. I think my favorite on this list is probably The Tipping Point.
Is your favorite business book on the list?
