From the Author:

The Perfect Company is a humorous fable about a children’s software vendor, but it is also much more than that. It uses a fictional framework to discuss real business practices that currently drive high levels of success at many of today’s leading companies. Most importantly, they show us how the very best performance isn’t the kind that is driven by rules and procedures – it has its roots in the relationships you build with the people who work for you.

This book is much more than a story for me – it is a passion. I have been fortunate to have been part of some great workplace cultures in my life, and have personally watched many of them literally create great things out of thin air. And in researching and writing my previous book The Soul of an Organization (Dearborn, 2002), I was privileged to research and interview many of the world’s great corporate cultures. Those who share my Christian traditions will understand a term I often use to describe them - they sanctify the workplace.

For each of us, The Perfect Company is closer than you might think. It just means thinking a little differently than we are used to thinking - and reaping rewards that we could never have imagined. My hope is that these fictional characters and I will help you build the real-world success of your organization, and your personal growth and success as a leader.

From the Inside Flap:

The Perfect Company is a successful children's software company, named after its founder Steven Perfect - and for Tom Barnham and Kathy Wong, beleaguered managers at nearby PeopleFirst Software, a visit to The Perfect Company helps them see their problems in a light that they have never seen them before - one that ultimately transforms the morale and performance of their organization.

At The Perfect Company, Tom and Kathy discover four secrets that drive their operations: Perfect Teamwork, Perfect Coaching, Perfect Performance, and Perfect Communications. But they also learn the core value that is central to their business - to think like a child. This principle ultimately affects Tom and Kathy's company in ways that they never imagined.

This simple but powerful story will teach you the real secrets of creating a high-performance organization, by unlocking your own team's motivation to build self-sustaining levels of success that no amount of rules or policies will ever create. Based on the real life best practices of leading organizations worldwide, The Perfect Company represents a clear game plan to create your own perfect company, in organizations of any size.
