Summary

Tom Peters, the international best-selling author of In Search of Excellence, which has sold over one million copies, concludes his 15 definitive rules on professional excellence and why, today, they are more important than ever.

The Excellence Dividend is a critical new book from one of today's leading visionaries in business. This year's winner of the Thinkers 50 Lifetime Achievement Award and the CEO Reads Lifetime Contribution to the Business Book Industry Award, Tom Peters is one of the world's most revered management gurus and global business thinkers.

For decades, he has been preaching the gospel of putting people first, and in today's rapidly changing business environment, this message is more important than ever. Studies show that fewer than one third of employees feel engaged with their work and that half of all jobs are at risk due to technology. But Peters has a solution: a sustained commitment to excellence combined with a commitment to people. These are, he argues, the only tools for coping with and thriving amidst the tsunami of change facing business today.

In The Excellence Dividend, Peters shows that nothing beats a high-quality product or service, designed and delivered by people who are as dedicated to each other as they are to their shared goal. With his unparalleled expertise and inimitable charisma, Peters offers brilliantly simple, actionable guidelines for success that any business leader can immediately implement. 

After spending four decades in in pursuit of professional excellence, giving more than 3,000 presentations on the subject and working with companies around the world, Peters has delivered a contemporary personal excellence manual for any professional looking to make their mark and face today's business challenges.

Not suited to be an audiobook

Despite having an MBA and enjoying reading In Search Of Excellence before 1990, I found this new book, read by Tom, very tiresome. He has developed a very high opinion of himself, and it shows. Somewhat annoyingly he reads out every section number and some have sub, and sub section numbers. I did not make it to the end of the book, so tiresome did I find listening, even though the advice is probably just as good as ISOE.

Great book, not the best format for audio

I got a lot from this book but the format of numbered paragraphs while they may work on paper does not really work as an audio book.
