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)!
