Read full description of the books Thriving on Chaos:This is not a casual business read. Rather this is for the serious business leader who can handle the challenges of dancing with traumatic changes in the way major companies do business-emerging markets, cheap foreign labor, trade deficits, niche markets. Tom Peters is a recognized guru on business excellence and management and the ability to love change, accept human resources as a major asset, stress quality and the use of building blocks as a strategy. The seven guiding premises are:
1-Creating Total Customer Responsiveness
2-Pursuing Fast-Paced inovation
3-Achieving flexibility by Empowering People
4-Learning to Love Change
5-Buillding Systems for a World Turned Upside Down
A guru forces the serious big company leaders to reinvent their companies.
Read information about the authorBorn in Baltimore in 1942 "with a lacrosse stick in one hand and oars over my shoulder," Peters resided in California, mainly Silicon Valley (where he was on a list of "100 most powerful people in Silicon Valley"), from 1965–2000. Today, Peters and his wife Susan Sargent live on a 1,600-acre working farm, "always under construction," in Vermont. His two stepsons, Max and Ben Cooper, are "busy changing the world" in Telluride and Brooklyn respectively.
Peters is a civil engineering graduate of Cornell (B.C.E., M.C.E.), where he is included in the book The 100 Most Notable Cornellians and earned an MBA and Ph.D. in business at Stanford; he holds honorary doctorates from institutions that range from the University of San Francisco to the State University of Management in Moscow—and has been honored by dozens of associations in content areas such as management, leadership, quality, human resources, customer service, innovation, marketing, and design. In the U.S. Navy from 1966–1970, he made two deployments to Vietnam (as a combat engineer in the fabled Navy Seabees) and "survived a tour in the Pentagon." He was a White House drug-abuse advisor in 1973–74 and then worked at McKinsey & Co. from 1974–1981, becoming a Partner in 1979; he also co-founded McKinsey's now gargantuan Organization Effectiveness practice. Peters' chief avocations are "brushcutting in the summer, hiking in New Zealand in the winter, reading history books by the hundredweight, collecting weird friends, talking to cab drivers, visiting Venice and racing George Clooney in accumulating frequent flyer miles."
