Profit at the expense of people.

The GAP between

One final ugly truth…

  4. 4. SHIT.
  5. 5. Teman: “I’m quitting advertising” Teman continues: "In bestowing this award on this piece of work, we’re actually exposing a really sad truth. That the advertising industry has become so topheavy with cost and process and approvals and meetings and waste, that the idea of just making a simple image, and deploying it to a simple platform at an opportune moment, is considered at this point to be ground-breaking.”
  6. 6. “If not for corporate bureaucracy, advertising, marketing and branding would be so much awesomer!”
  7. 7. The customer has changed. The employee has changed. Everything has changed except the corporation.
  8. 8. #BrandSchizo (it’s a corporate disease)
  9. 9. The symptoms of #BrandSchizo • Big-Bang Disruption (Harvard Business Review)
  10. 10. The symptoms of #BrandSchizo “That kind of innovation changes the rules. We’re accustomed to seeing mature products wiped out by new technologies and to ever-shorter product life cycles. But now entire product lines—whole markets— are being created or destroyed overnight. Disrupters can come out of nowhere and instantly be everywhere. Once launched, such disruption is hard to fight.”
