9780330330626: Liberation Management: Necessary Disorganization for the Nanosecond Nineties

In the new economy, hierarchical business structures are being consigned to the shredder and replaced with flexible, fast-responding, ad hoc groups of brainworkers. Tom Peters, author of the bestselling IN SEARCH OF EXCELLENCE is once again ahead of the curve, and now demonstrates that the key to success in business future is total engagement, dynamism, speed, and independence.
"Rewarding. Provides a wealth of thought-provoking information and incisive insights."
"A gold mine of information."

From Publishers Weekly:

At a large Florida medical center, a cross-trained duo--a nurse and a lab technician--can perform for a patient 80% of all necessary services. At Cable News Network, a 30-minute, nine-bureau online meeting determines each coming day's program. These and 50 other flexible, innovative companies--Ingersoll-Rand, Electronic Data Systems, Chiat/Day/Mojo, Random House--provide the case studies for Peters's ( In Search of Excellence ) punchy, freewheeling primer. "Fashionable" products tailored to customers' ever narrower-gauge needs will define the marketplace of the 1990s, asserts Peters. Companies that respond to this environment, he predicts, may fissure into small, autonomous units; such "brain-based" firms will recognize the value of letting project teams and empowered employees have access to all of the firm's information. Part pep talk, part grab-bag of business strategies, this energizing, idea-rich handbook will shake up traditional managers and rank-and-file workers alike. 250,000 first printing; BOMC main selection.

From Library Journal:

Unlike his best sellers In Search of Excellence (with Robert Waterman , LJ 2/15/83) and A Passion for Excellence (with Nancy Austin , LJ 6/15/85), this latest book by management guru Peters doesn't have the benefit of an official coauthor, and it shows. While chock-full of important case studies (from Ingersoll Rand, CNN, the Body Shop, and others), the book is so dense, with Peters equivocating a bit too much on word choice, that few will read it cover to cover. Still, Peters's main argument--that companies have to be flexible enough to readjust to the quick changes of a "fashion"-driven marketplace--seems on the mark and should bring him a large readership. For all management/business collections. BOMC main selection; previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 6/15/92.
