9780679757658: The Circle of Innovation: You Can't Shrink Your Way to Greatness

In 1982, business guru Tom Peters co-authored In Search of Excellence, one of the most influential business guides of all time. More recently, through 400 seminars in 47 states and 22 countries, Peters reexamined, refined and reinvented his views on innovation--the #1 survival strategy, he asserts, for businesses of the next millennium.

The Circle of Innovation brings these seminars--and Peters' contagious passion--to the reader in a landmark book. Through bold graphics, astounding facts and figures, and quotes whose sources range from Émile Zola to Steve Jobs, Peters blows the lid off accepted management styles. Here is a book that will open your eyes to new ways of envisioning the challenges of today's world. Here, too, is a practical guide that will teach you how to:

- reverse the rising tide of product and service "commoditization" and foster uniqueness
- capitalize on the skyrocketing purchasing power of women
- convert sluggish staff into vital centers of intellectual capital accumulation
- build systems of elegance and beauty
- liberate your creativity and individual leadership style

Whether you manage a six-person department or a 60,000-body behemoth, The Circle of Innovation  empowers you to transform your organization, your career, yourself. Inspiring, timely, this blueprint for success is pure Peters--a handbook as energetic as it is profound.

Review:

Business guru Tom Peters has been recognized for his originality and perception since coauthoring one of the most influential management books of all time: 1982's In Search of Excellence. Now, in his seventh work, The Circle of Innovation: You Can't Shrink Your Way to Greatness, he presents a provocative new vision for prospering in the "permanent state of flux" ruling today's business world. By juxtaposing short text passages and bold graphic images, Peters simply but passionately offers his prescription--perpetual innovation--in a nontraditional manner intended to foster individual interpretation. --Howard Rothman

From the Publisher:

"In his inimitable style, Tom Peters has again produced a provocative, incisive handbook to help executives meet the unprecedented challenges of today's business world."
--Frederick W. Smith, Chairman of the Board and CEO, FedEx

"Tom Peters feels business in his gut. He moves when he sees opportunity. He hurts when he sees mediocrity. He exults when he sees innovation...Tom takes an idea and turns it into what others can't. He has turned up the volume for me. I think The Circle of Innovation will do the same for you."
--From the Foreword by Dean LeBaron, founder of investment innovator Batterymarch Financial Management, and trustee of the Santa Fe Institute

"In The Circle of Innovation Tom Peters has created a 'literary highway' full of billboards that smack you right in the face."
--Hal F. Rosenbluth, President and CEO, Rosenbluth International

"If you think the internet is hot, wait until you read The Circle of Innovation. Tom Peters gives us real-life examples of people who are revolutionizing their businesses in an inspiring and exciting style."
--Judy George, CEO, Domain Home Fashions

"Tom Peters is a mental catapult crashing ideas into the walls of conventional thinking. The Circle of Innovation is another of his iconoclastic and seminal works."
--Herbert D. Kelleher, Chairman of the Board, President & Chief Executive Officer, Southwest Airlines
