Tom Peters and his Company have continued to develop thinking and insights into excellent enterprises since the original McKinsey Research and the In Search of Excellence book was written with Rob Waterman in the 1980s.
|Following the series of 18 books authored by Tom Peters, a spectrum of research and consulting assignments by him and his company, core insights were used to inform a perspective on what an excellent company would look like. This has evolved into the “Future Shape of the Winner” TM model. This can help your enterprise focus on developing a context where the performance delivered by your people creates more value for your customers than the performance of your competitors people can for their customers.|
The Future Shape of the Winner TM Excellence Model builds on the “systems plus passion” balance – a foundation of the Tom Peter’s client work – with fresh insights, flexibility and practicality to help enterprises address the intense demands of our ever more agile and resource constrained world. Future Shape of the Winner TM provides a template for future organisational excellence – centred on Talent i.e. the people in your enterprise delivering the best work they can – and considers excellence in 3 axis:
|How well are the enterprise’s people performing in relation to achieving the enterprise’s ambition?||What do your customers experience when in dialogue with your enterprise?||How can leaders enable their talent to deliver the highest quality work output that they can?|
A Gyroscope is used as a metaphor:
The Excellence Audit TM is a 360-degree assessment instrument that has been developed to capture the thinking of the key knowledge workers in an enterprise from the perspective of both current performance and the future. It enables enterprises to assess how they shape up against a “Template” of an Excellent Company and to focus development efforts in the most promising areas. Enterprises in a spectrum of industries from manufacturing to financial services have used the audit to help form improvement agendas. Their range of situations have included relocation of manufacturing, new services businesses and enterprises that have concluded that they cannot cost cut their way to success. Use of the Audit has helped galvanise the leadership team around a new agenda. Moreover, insights from an Excellence Audit TM have helped Leadership Teams understand why some of their change programmes are running well, while others are a source of frustration.
