 James Gilmore Biography

James H. Gilmore is co-founder of Aurora, Ohio-based Strategic Horizons LLP, a thinking studio dedicated to helping businesses conceive and design new ways of adding value to their economic offerings. Gilmore works with management teams to grasp the nature of the emerging “Experience Economy” and envision their role in it—whether it be staging experiences, guiding transformations or mass customizing any economic offering. Gilmore is a frequent speaker at professional society and trade association conferences, as well as executive education programs of individual companies. His ideas have been published in many of the world’s leading publications, including the Harvard Business Review, The Wall Street Journal, and Investor’s Business Daily among others.

Gilmore is also co-author with B. Joseph Pine II of The Experience Economy: Work is Theatre & Every Business a Stage. The book demonstrates how companies, from a myriad of industries, are finding their goods and services commoditized with customers increasingly spending their money on experiences— memorable events that engage customers in an inherently personal way. It also shows how businesses can create value by embracing theatre as an operating model to stage unique experiences that ultimately transform those who participate in them. As a follow-up, Pine and Gilmore edited Markets of One: Creating Customer- Unique Value through Mass Customization.

Gilmore began his career with Procter & Gamble and then spent over ten years consulting with Cleveland Consulting Associates and Computer Sciences Corporation, heading up CSC Consulting’s process innovation practice. A Batten Fellow at The Graduate School of Business Administration at the University of Virginia, he previously served as the 2002-2003 Dean Helen LeBaron Hilton Endowed Co-chair at the College of Family & Consumer Sciences at Iowa State University. He has also lectured at Case Western's Weatherhead School of Management, Cornell's School of Hotel Administration, and Rochester Institute of Technology's College of Applied Science and Technology.

Gilmore is a certified instructor in the lateral thinking methodologies of Dr. Edward Debono. He also serves on the faculty of The Institutes for Organization Management for the US Chamber of Commerce, and works with both for-profit and non-profit enterprises to foster innovative thinking.

  • Get Real: Authenticity is the New Quality

    In a world filled with ever more mediated and staged experiences an increasingly unreal world consumers are now making decisions based on how real they perceive various offerings to be. As a result, enterprises must become adept at rendering authenticity. Finding ways to tap into this emerging sensibility will become essential for success in the years and decades to come. This new challenge can be defined best as the management of the customer perception of authenticity. To be blunt: you must get real and not just claim youre real.

  • Everything You Need to Innovate Can Be Learned From Reality TV

    One of the privileges for Jim Gilmore to result from the success of The Experience Economy is the number of entrepreneurs who contact him for feedback about the launch of their experience-based ventures. In this session, Gilmore will walk through ten start-up businesses that have approached him in recent years in search of advice and/or capital. Gilmore has secured permission from each new venture to share their basic business concept. The audience will then vote on which they think is most viable.

  • Design What? How Goods, Services and Experiences Differ in Value

He will share his perspective on the design appeal of the (experience) enterprises that have won Pine & Gilmores Experience Stager of the Year (EXPY) award, but then present examples of the physical things (goods) and intangible activities (services) that he most admires for their design distinctions and the principles he detects that create their appeal.
