Curation, or the art of selecting useful information to form meaningful collections, is the new buzzword that tech companies and media professionals have eagerly latched on to. But curation is a far more powerful and deeply relevant idea than we give it credit for. It answers the question of how we make sense of a culture in which problems are often about having too much, and shows how we keep growing in a world of excess. Acts of selecting, refining and arranging to add value help us overcome information overload. This book highlights the numerous places in which this simple but forceful skill is increasingly felt: in art and on the Web, but also in retail and manufacturing, high finance and government policy. CURATION is an exciting and wide-ranging work of business-oriented non-fiction incorporating the latest thinking in economics, technology, business strategy, complexity theory, media and psychology with strong narratives and big ideas. Through powerful personal stories about real jobs, lives, companies and industries fighting to thrive in crowded markets, it reveals how a little-used word from the world of museums became a crucial business strategy for the 21st century. Curation is one of the most gripping and unignorable business ideas for our time, and organisations and individuals who make the most of it will position themselves to grow.

A fascinating account ... and also a useful guide -- Andy Miller Spectator Full of illuminating detail, Bhaskar's writing eloquently confronts problems of excess -- New Statesman New Statesman A terrific and important book ... it's a great, fresh take on how the 21st century is transforming the way we select everything from food to music. -- David Bodanis, author of E=MC2 In his outstanding new book, Michael Bhaskar reveals that curation, formerly the preserve of art galleries and specialists, has become an essential part of our overloaded lives. Dispelling the old mantra that more is better, Bhaskar teaches us that value today lies not in creating more choices, but training ourselves to choose better. Whether operating a business or choosing your own self identity, Curation rightly shifts our focus from producing more and more to finding what matters. -- Sheena Iyengar, author of THE ART OF CHOOSING This book is a must have ... Bhaskar penetrates to the very essence of man- and machine-made choices. -- Roman Tschappeler, co-author of THE DECISION BOOK
