Collaboration – Part 4 by Grant McCracken

Collaboration

PART 4

Collaboration

  • Solving problems in real time. This is where we collaborate with one another and test our new skills and knowledge.

    We will work on problems you bring to camp. And we will also look at the chronic problems that bedevil these five industries:

    health / fitness / pharma - (e.g. how to content with boomers reinventing and their "third 30”)

    food / artisanal / consumer packaged goods - (e.g. how to contend with the artisanal movement)

    banking / financial services / investment - (e.g. what’s the best financial advice when the consumer is fluid and multiple?)

    entertainment / story telling / binge viewing - (e.g. how to deal with the Netflix effect and the new story telling)

    culture creativity / advertising / PR / marketing - (e.g. how to make cultural content that engages and spreads)

How To – Part 3 by Grant McCracken

Culture Camp How To

PART 3

How To

  • Creation, innovation, disruption, a how-to.We will define the term in a very particular, anthropological way ”

    In this section we will get to practical matters, specifically how to use our knowledge of culture to create more powerful kinds of storytelling, social, design, PR, advertising,popups, activation, meme making, branding,
    retail design, and experiential marketing.

    We'll identify the new rules of creativity and innovation.

    We will discuss cultural meanings, how to combine them, how to use them to innovate and communicate
    using the media that matter.

American Culture – Part 2 by Grant McCracken

PART 2

American Culture

  • Culture is a term sometimes used too vaguely. We will define the term in a very particular, anthropological way. Culture consists of the meanings that define our ideas of age, class, gender, race, ethnicity, and things like families, food, health, aging, child rearing, work, and creativity. In the American case, we are particularly interested in the big shift that has taken place since World War II. In the 50s, American culture was dominated by upward mobility, conspicuous consumption, and social status. This model has been radically reworked. Our culture is now dominated by several themes: multiplicity, transformation, fluidity, complexity and diversity. We are defining the self, the community, and the organization. And this makes the consumer a very different creature engaged in new and sometimes highly experimental notions of identity and community. Consumer motivations and choices - why and what they buy - are changing at light speed. The old rules are dead. New rules are emerging. We will map these rules, discuss what they mean and show how to use them.

Discovery – Part 1 by Grant McCracken

Discovery

PART 1

Discovery

  • We’ll begin the day with a review of the tools that help us discover culture: anthropology, ethnography and the "big board”.

    We will talk about how to use ethnography to discover culture in conversation with the consumer. Then we’ll show how we can use anthropology to put this learning in the broader context of American culture today. And then we will demonstrate how to use a “big board” to show culture in motion, tracking its movements as it’s shaped by the many, little, “choppy” trends now at work in our world.  

    To know our culture is to possess a secret advantage. It’s the knowledge that defines us as professionals, and the source of the value we bring to our organizations. These days, a lot of culture discovery comes through ethnography. But when we add context using anthropology and a “big board,” it’s possible to see culture more broadly and use it more powerfully.
