Abstract:

In contrast to the mass of oversimplified business survival manuals, this one justifies itself. After demonstrating in his previous books (In Search of Excellence, with Robert Waterman, and A Passion for Excellence) what he calls the "nice-to-do'' in order for an organization to achieve success, Peters now proposes the "must-do'' to survive in explosively changing times. His 45 "prescriptions'' for survival boil down to enlightened leadership through innovation and flexibility in management style and organizational structure. Essential. (Library Journal).
