Publisher's Summary

Thirty-five years after his iconic In Search of Excellence, best-selling author and management guru Tom Peters is back with his most urgent message yet.

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. Gallup numbers show that fewer than one-third of employees feel engaged with their work, and one study suggests that fully half of American 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, punctuated by incisive quotes from some of today's leading lights in business. The Excellence Dividend is an important new book from one of today's leading visionaries in business.

Must read

Right up there with In Search of Excellence and Good to Great. The fact that Mr. Peters narrated himself was a bonus.

Might be a better read than a listen

The way this book is structured does not lend itself well to an Audible book. I was very disappointed with the way the content was presented. The author seemed to be reading from a set of cryptic notes or a bullet list for most of the book. I had high expectations, but the constant verbalizing of the chapter dividers - 1.1.22, 4.3.6 made if hard to follow a thought flow.

16.7.4.3.2.1 WIWATNAA (What Is With All The Numbers And Acronyms)

This book has great content. I love Tom Peter's material and enjoyed the book a lot. I haven't seen the printed version but all the numbers and acronyms in the audio version are a bit much. I did think it ironic that he has long sections on tailoring your product to the women's market because they are the decision makers and yet his book reads like a bullet point list.
Im just being picky at this point. I would recommend this book to anyone who really wants to know how to lead a business. Listening, Relationships take time and energy and where most leaders miss the mark.
I look forward to listening to it a second time.

Valuable insights from an influential business mind.

He believes in the entrepreneur; the small business person.
He informs us of women’s highly significant role in the US economy; they make a very high percentage of purchasing decisions.
He studies, he reads a lot, he distills that learning, which he incorporates into his books.
He works hard in his preparation for a presentation.
He believes in the Herb Kelleher and Richard Branson method of prioritizing the employee within a business.

Vintage Tom Peters

I have been following Tom Peters since he wrote: In Search of Excellence.
As with all of Tom’s books this one is filled with many nuggets of wisdom.
Reason this book is like opening up a fire hose and trying to digest it. (In a good way.)
Several times the info was so good I rewound to hear it a second time.
If you are looking to successfully grow your business, this book is invaluable.
I am passing it to my COO.
Highly recommend this book.
