We have heard that over and over:
"That kind of book will never work. Publishers will not buy it, nor will readers!"
Turns out that more often than not, a couple of years later, the very same things that "could never work", get actually done, and successfully so.
The business books market is full of self-defying beliefs that cripple innovation. Deep-rooted myths inhibit fresh formats, and make conceiving cool book concepts and formats difficult, or even impossible.
We believe that the business book can be imaginative. Beautiful. Artsy. Thrilling. Illuminating. Humorous. Fun.
Which is why we got into making these books ourselves.
Our books are unlike most others. They are incredibly to the point. Visualized and fully colored.
Practically theoretic. Inspiring. Featuring cutting-edge insights. And enormously entertaining.
In short: We want to make books that deserve to be called "cool".
Readers of our first book, Organize for Complexity, published back in 2014, thus gave us a big thumbs up.
Add to that business book concepts that combine:
That is the power of BetaCodex Publishing. And we intend to push the boundaries of the business book much, much further still.

"At a very reasonable price, every company should just buy several copies, read them, and see how they can implement these ideas." Harold Jarche
"In Pflaegings book, the network organization gains contour. All that is beautifully visualized. In short, Niels Pflaeging shows how to build the New Organization, encouraging us to begin building it. It´s the agenda 2014, if you will." changeX
"Very inspiring, highly likable format. This book is fun!"
"To me, even after this brief period, the book has become a frequently consulted source informing my work".
