In 1982, business guru Tom Peters coauthored 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 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.

About the Author
Author Tom PetersTom Peters is co-author of In Search of Excellence--the book that changed the way the world does business, and often tagged as the best business book ever. Sixteen books and almost thirty years later, he's still at the forefront of the "management guru industry" he single-handedly invented. What's new? A lot. As CNN said, "While most business gurus milk the same mantra for all its worth, the one-man brand called Tom Peters is still reinventing himself." His most recent effort, released in March 2010: The Little BIG Things: 163 Ways to Pursue Excellence. Tom's bedrock belief: "Execution is strategy--it's all about the people and the doing, not the talking and the theory."
