"Tom Peters has for twelve years been telling business that the rules have changed. Now he goes farther in The Tom Peters Seminar, the first in an exciting new series of original paperback books aimed at helping everyone--Fortune 500 chairmen, middle managers trying to hold on to their place on the ladder (a mistake!), and hotel housekeepers--thrive in the brave new world of business. He presents the provocative and sometimes scary analysis and advice that have led thousands from all over the globe to spend up to $1,500 a day to attend his trademark seminars." "These bold ideas vault business people beyond reengineering, beyond total quality management, beyond empowerment, even beyond change--toward reinvention and revolution. The result, organized around nine such "beyonds," is a timely, graphically exciting volume, loaded with "how tos."" "In presenting a radical new view of how business can work, Peters offers the following challenge: "If you're not irate in the first thirty minutes of reading, if you don't throw this book down at least once in the first hour, and if you don't reach for the Maalox by the two-hour mark, then I and this book will have utterly failed you.""--Jacket

7 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The common denominator/bottom line for both the professional service firm/PSF and the individual/Brand You is: the project. And for the cool individual in the cool professional service firm there is only one answer: the cool project. A seminar participant said: "Reward excellent failures. Punish mediocre successes." So, how many of you are at work -- right now -- on "mediocre successes"' At work on projects that won't be recalled, let alone recalled with fondness and glee, a year from now' We don't study professional service firms. (Mistake.) And we don't study WOW Projects. (Worse mistake.) There is, of course, a project management literature. But it's awful. Or, at least, misleading. It focuses almost exclusively on the details of planning and tracking progress and totally ignores the important stuff like: Is it cool' Is it beautiful' Will it make a difference' My No.1 epithet: "On time ... on budget ... who cares'" I.e., does it matter' Will you be bragging about it two--or ten--years from now' Is it a WOW project' So, then: Step #1 . . .the organization . . .the professional service firm/PSF 1.0. Step 2 . . .the individual . . .the pursuit of distinction/Brand You. And: Step #3 ... the work itself ... the memorable project/WOW Projects. The Project50 is a simple and handy guide that provides 50 easy steps to help the modern businessperson choose the right project, find the right team, develop strategies for success, and ultimately know when it's time to move on.
