WAR INBOARD THE ROOM: Why Left-Brain Management and Right-Brain Marketing Don’t See Eye-to-Eye and What to Do About It AL & LAURA RIES book Free download.
Your brain is divided into two completely separate hemispheres. Each hemisphere processes information differently. Your left hemisphere processes information in series. It thinks in language. It works linearly and methodically. Your right hemisphere processes information in parallel. It thinks in mental images. It “sees” the big picture. One side of your brain or the other is dominant. In itself, that should not be surprising since it’s consistent with another well-known human trait. Some people are left-handed and some people are righthanded. In a similar fashion, some people are left brainers and some people are right brainers. (The two are independent. Left brainers can be either right-handed or left-handed. And vice versa).
What are you? If you’re the CEO of a major corporation, chances are good you are a left brainer. Before you make a decision, you want to be supported by facts, figures, market data, consumer re-Preface search. It couldn’t be otherwise in a world where the ultimate measurement is the bottom line and the stock price. If you have a job in marketing, chances are good you are a right brainer. You often make decisions by “gut instinct” with little or no supporting evidence. It couldn’t be otherwise in a creative discipline like marketing.
