Go To War With Your Own Systems – YES!


I love Tom Peters.  If you have not read his extensive body of work, you are cheating yourself.  One of my favorites is “Re-Imagine!: Business Excellence in a Disruptive Age” which touches on some of the absurdities and opportunities to improve business in the 21st century.  It really resonated with me and continues to remind me why I chose a career in consulting to help clients improve their businesses.

I ran across this video from Tom Peters from a recent tweet of his.  It’s a snippet from his new book, “The Little Big Things: 163 Ways to Pursue EXCELLENCE,”  and it really stuck with me.  At first, this seems like an upside-down concept.  Why would I attack the very systems I’ve worked to put in place?  But it’s genius.  This type of self-analysis is what will keep a company ahead of its competitors (and protect it from itself)!
