In Search of Excellence

Thomas J. Peters

Overview

What's the holy grail of effectively managing a business? Over many years countless management Lancelots have fought the dragons protecting these secrets. Unfortunately, few have come away with good information. That was the case until 1982 when two men bravely figured out the mysteries of efficient business administration.

Tom Peters and Robert Waterman Jr. went straight to the origin of victorious operations. They looked at the 15 most successful companies in America, and who ran them. Their book In Search of Excellence lets you in on the secrets they discovered through their quest.

The holy grail may be a myth, both historically and in business management. But this book debunks a lot of the fantasies around what works to make a great company. It shares a lot of proven tactics with examples and steps to help your business reach new heights.

"Many of the innovative companies got their best product ideas from customers. That comes from listening, intently and regularly."
