Value Proposition Design: How to Create Products and Services Customers Want (Strategyzer) is a guide through which you can, with a bit of work, self evidently figure out you value proposition.

A value proposition is a business or marketing statement that summarizes why a consumer should buy a product or use a service. This statement should convince a potential consumer that one particular product or service will add more value or better solve a problem than other similar offerings. – http://www.investopedia.com/terms/v/Fvalueproposition.asp

Change: Learn to Love It, Learn to Lead It on the inside of the cover is a quote from Sir Alex Ferguson

To be successful, you have to be able to adapt to change.

Anyone who wants an introduction and/or understanding of change and how to do it should read this book….just read the book. “Everyone” wants change, no one is willing to change. Well not true, some of us embrace change, if you want to too (or are curious…) read this book.
