We-think by Charles Leadbeater( Book )

28 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 617 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Society is based not on mass consumption now but on mass innovative participation - as is clear in phenomena from Wikipedia, YouTube and Craigslist to new forms of scientific research and political campaigning. This new mode of 'We-think' is reshaping the way we work, play and communicate
The frugal innovator : creating change on a shoestring budget by Charles Leadbeater( Book )

11 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 467 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Frugal innovation is a powerful new model for creating solutions for a world struggling with rapid population growth, exploding demand from consumers on modest incomes, and global pressure to minimize environmental damage. This new wave of innovation started in the developing world but is spreading globally. This inspiring book provides an insight into what promises to become a worldwide movement as large companies in developed economies start to learn from entrepreneurs in the developing world, who are coming up with radical solutions to pressing challenges. Frugal innovators follow four design principles to create these solutions: 'lean, simple, clean and social'. Frugal innovators are devising these new solutions for clean water and energy, affordable housing and health care, because the constraints they work give them no option but to think radically and challenge conventional wisdom. By unpicking the principles, drivers and methods for frugal innovation, Leadbeater's analysis and case studies lead to practical 'how-to' strategies for applying frugal innovation wherever you work."--
The weightless society : living in the new economy bubble by Charles Leadbeater( Book )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and German and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Weightless Society shows why entrepreneurship will become a mass activity, companies will need to be structured as if they were brains, ownership must be broadly spread, networks will become the main way of organizing the knowledge economy, and truth and collaboration will be the new ethics of the new economy. Perhaps most compellingly, he shows how the same principles are being applied in the public sector. Leadbeater argues for a radical overhaul of corporate and government institutions inherited from the industrial era which are ill suited to the knowledge economy, including new approaches to measuring economic value, taxation and social entrepreneurship."--Jacket
TEDTalks : Charles Leadbeater - Education Innovation in the Slums( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charles Leadbeater went looking for radical new forms of education - and found them in the slums of Rio and Kibera, where some of the world's poorest kids are finding transformative new ways to learn. And this informal, disruptive new kind of school, he says, is what all schools need to become
Living on thin air : the new economy by Charles Leadbeater( Book )

18 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Living on Thin Air is about how we can create an environment that is both innovative and inclusive. Our societies should be organized around the creation of knowledge capital and social capital, rather than being dominated by the power of financial capital. Drawing on research in California, Japan, Germany and the Far East, Charles Leadbeater shows how we can create communities of competition, in which we collaborate to compete in the global economy."--BOOK JACKET
School leadership for public value : understanding valuable outcomes for children, families and communities by Denis Mongon( )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a timely contribution to the debate about the purpose and structure of schooling in England. It describes how some schools enhance pupil attainment by creating strong alliances with their neighbourhood communities
Up the down escalator : why the global pessimists are wrong by Charles Leadbeater( Book )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Up the Down Escalator Charles Leadbeater takes on the high priests of pessimism from left and right. He examines the arguments of commentators like Naomi Klein, John Gray and Roger Scruton, showing that the vogue for pessimism has gone too far. Pessimism is becoming a self-fulfilling prophecy: we are talking ourselves into a state of helplessness." "Instead, he argues, there are good grounds for modest optimism that the state of the world could improve in coming decades, provided that sustained innovation in science, technology and business are matched by social and political change to make globalization more equitable and environmentally sustainable."--BOOK JACKET

The independents : Britain's new cultural entrepreneurs by Charles Leadbeater( Book )

8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A new breed of independents accounts for a growing share of the employment and output in some of the fastest growing sectors of the British economy: cultural industries such as design, fashion, multimedia and Internet services." "One of the main findings of this research - based on dozens of interviews with the new Independents in four British cities - is that there is a 'missing middle' in public policy. Policymakers, both national and local, know little about this new generation of entrepreneur - how they work, where they come from, their distinctive needs - nor how to interact with them. This policy gap has to be closed - with new approaches to education, business support, finance and arts policy - to help provide these new cultural entrepreneurs with a firmer base to build upon."--BOOK JACKET
The rise of the social entrepreneur by Charles Leadbeater( Book )

10 editions published between 1997 and 2001 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The pro-am revolution : how enthusiasts are changing our society and economy by Charles Leadbeater( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in 3 languages and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From astronomy to activism, from surfing to saving lives, Pro-Ams - people pursuing amateur activities to professional standards - are an increasingly important part of our society and economy. For Pro-Ams, leisure is not passive consumerism but active and participatory, it involves the deployment of publicly accredited knowledge and skills, often built up over a long career, which has involved sacrifices and frustrations. The 20th century witnessed the rise of professionals in medicine, science, education, and politics. In one field after another, amateurs and their ramshackle organisations were driven out by people who knew what they were doing and had certificates to prove it. The Pro-Am Revolution argues this historic shift is reversing. We're witnessing the flowering of Pro-Am, bottom-up self-organisation and the crude, all or nothing, categories of professional or amateur will need to be rethought. Based on in-depth interviews with a diverse range of Pro-Ams and containing new data about the extent of Pro-Am activity in the UK, this report proposes new policies to support and encourage valuable Pro-Am activity.

To our mutual advantage by Charles Leadbeater( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The conversion of many building societies from mutual ownership to shareholder organisation has led some commentators to write the obituary for the entire mutual movement." "However, this book - the first comprehensive review of Britain's mutual 'sector' - shows that mutuality is for from extinct. In fact, mutuals are poised to play a for bigger role in the twenty-first century economy." "The report highlights the factors that make mutual enterprises more effective and innovative and the barriers to their success. It sets out a programme for a radical 'mutualisation' of services in the UK. Mutuality was a 'big idea' in the last century; it can be again in the next, offering a way to combine economic dynamism with social responsibility and community spirit."--BOOK JACKET

Personalisation through participation : a new script for public services by Charles Leadbeater( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Personalisation can be likened to privatisation of state-owned utilities in the 1980s - a big idea with the potential to transform the public sector. The Prime Minister has promised personalised public services in a series of recent speeches. This pamphlet argues that offering personalised education and health services will increase people’s expectations and create a demand-led pressure for reform. Charles Leadbeater believes that if government is serious about personalisation, public sector bodies should regard this promise as a big challenge to the way they currently operate. He explains how personalisation go beyond a simple consumer model to actually involving users in their design and delivery of the next generation of services. Charles Leadbeater is an author, consultant and government adviser. This report was produced as part of a Demos project on personalisation with the Innovation Unit of the Department for Education and Skills
