9780061894107: The Little Big Things: 163 Ways to Pursue EXCELLENCE

"It is [Tom] Peters—as consultant, writer, columnist, seminar lecturer, and stage performer—whose energy, style, influence, and ideas have [most] shaped new management thinking.” —Movers and Shakers: The 100 Most Influential Figures in Modern Business

“We live in a Tom Peters world.” —Fortune Magazine

Business uber-guru Tom Peters is back with his first book in a decade, The Little Big Things. In this age of economic recession and financial uncertainty, the patented Peters approach to business and management—no-nonsense, witty, down-to-earth, insightful—is more pertinent now than ever. As essential for small-business owners as it is for the heads of major corporations, The Little Big Things is a rousing call-to-arms to American business to get “back to the basics” of running a successful enterprise.

Review:

“Those who want to improve their business, whether a boss or an employee, will find great ideas in this compelling and very browsable book.” (Library Journal)

“If you truly believe ‘excellence’ is what Tom Peters is all about, then you will buy this book, read it, learn from it and go away confirmed in your belief. Tom’s 163 tips are validated through experience again and again.” (Stephen R. Covey, author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and The Leader in Me)

“The single best management book I’ve ever read.” (Warren Bennis)

From the Back Cover:

No one has had more influence in shaping the idea of modern management than Tom Peters. An avowed enemy of conformism and the status quo, Peters is a necessary voice of experience to guide us through times of financial uncertainty. In The Little BIG Things, he provides essential wisdom for everyone—from the freelancer to the small business owner to the head of a major corporation—offering 163 ways to excel at the "people side of business" by pursuing excellence at every level.

"The 'Excellence Standard' is not about Grand Outcomes. In Zen-like terms, all we have is today. If the day's work cannot be assessed as Excellent, then the oceanic overall goal of Excellence has not been advanced. Period."

"If membership in your club (organization) is not aimed at 'mind-blowing' development for each staff member and 'window rattling' service for each customer and other extended family members, then . . . just what the hell is the point?"
