first_img Happy Friday! Let’s take a look at some of the biggest news coming out of Los Angeles this week.Want Better Growth? Toss Out The Marketing Playbook – CGU Drucker School NewsClaremont Graduate University’s Drucker School Chair in Management and the Liberal Arts, Bernie Jaworski, suggests that to compete in today’s emerging markets, traditional ‘by the book’ strategies must take a back seat.Jaworski recently co-authored The Organic Growth Playbook: Activate High-Yield Behaviors To Achieve Extraordinary Results – Every Time with Robert Lurie. In it, they explored the stories of four companies who achieved rapid growth by eschewing standard marketing approaches.Through their research, Lurie and Jaworski discovered that a “more holistic approach to customers’ purchasing behaviors” leads to long term revenue increases. The authors believe that the underlying consumer behavior behind the success or failure of certain products is the key to making the right decisions. Lurie is the current Vice President of Corporate Strategy at the Eastman Chemical Company. The Organic Growth Playbook is available now from the American Marketing Association.Graziadio Forms New Classroom in the STAPLES Center – Pepperdine NewsroomThe Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG) and Pepperdine University’s Graziadio Business School are teaming up to establish a classroom in the STAPLES Center.

We thought there was a lot of sharing to take place … They hear a lot about corporate leadership, and I wanted them to hear about military leadership and see where the overlaps are. This group of veterans knows leadership quite well, and they have a lot to give.”GLP students are just embarking upon their educational experience, but they were able to offer the vets a glimpse into their lives which was just as valuable.Eugenia Hang (GLP ’22), says, “I think this is really important for the students to experience and reflect on these concepts, like integrity, [and] communication … One of the takeaways I got was sacrificing personal gains for the collective benefit.”You can read more about the recent USC Marshall event here.
