Tom has provided the slides from his presentation at the IIL virtual conference, Agile and Scrum 2018. There is the version he used at the online event, and a longer slideset compiled with more depth for anyone who'd like to see more of what he'd have had to say, time allowing.

As I do various podcasts in particular, I keep trying to boil down the fundamental argument of The Excellence Dividend. Here you will find the heart of the matter in ... SEVEN SLIDES (with annotation added).
Lemme know what you think at twitter (@tom_peters).
FYI: Here is the first slide ...
THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR NOT MAKING ANY ORGANIZATION/ ANY SIZE/ANY BUSINESS A GREAT PLACE TO WORK
EVERY LEADER/2018 HAS A MORAL OBLIGATION TO DEVELOP PEOPLE SO THAT WHEN THEY LEAVE THEY ARE BETTER PREPARED FOR TOMORROW THAN THEY WERE WHEN THEY ARRIVED.
ANY/ALL ORGANIZATIONS ARE PEOPLE SERVING PEOPLE. LEADERS: PEOPLE SERVING PEOPLE SERVING PEOPLE.
Well, here I go again. Trying to produce useful Excellence Dividend companions. This is a "get it off my chest" PowerPoint. The big ideas about which I am feeling more passionate each day!
I dearly hope you find stuff to steal!!!!!
(PLEASE READ THIS DAMN THING. THE POWERPOINT IS SHORT AND I HOPE SWEET—AND THE VERY BEST I CAN DO!!!!!)
Following my April 12 speech in Columbus, Ohio, and two weeks of book publicity—many, many, podcasts, I decided I wanted to complement the new book with an up-to-the-minute PowerPoint. You will find it here. The Big Deal is substantial annotation.
I want you to buy the book!!
Plus copies for colleagues!!
This is not a substitute—but I hope it is a pretty complete addendum. Moreover, an addendum that might help you directly in, say, presentations you make.
And please let me know via Twitter what you think!
I had a great time in Columbus, which is a league leader in business growth, aiming to redouble its already substantial efforts. (The topic was economic development—which allowed me to focus on my SME Love Affair.) As usual, we immediately posted the slides here at tompeters.com.
However, a couple of days later I got to playing around with the slideset. As it was, I didn't get through all the material—typical for me. Nonetheless, I'm now posting a "What if" version of the presentation—what if I'd had 120 minutes instead of 60?
Since this new slidedeck is also a "sorta summary" of The Excellence Dividend, I thought you might be interested.
Have at it, Columbus ENHANCED as of 6PM on 14 April 2018.
Note: WHILE I'VE BEEN ON BOOK TOUR—MOSTLY PODCASTS—I'VE BEEN ASKED OVER AND OVER TO EXPLAIN MY OBSESSION WITH THE "PEOPLE STUFF." I USUALLY ANSWER, SNIPPILY, "WELL WHAT THE HELL ELSE IS THERE? ORGANIZATIONS, NO MATTER HOW MUCH TECHNOLOGY THEY USE, ARE NO MORE AND NO LESS THAN 'PEOPLE SERVING PEOPLE.'" ON THIS TOPIC, CHECK OUT SLIDE #2, WHICH SAYS:
(1)THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR NOT MAKING ANY ORGANIZATION OF ANY SIZE IN ANY BUSINESS A GREAT PLACE TO WORK.
(2) EVERY LEADER HAS A MORAL OBLIGATION CIRCA 2018 TO DEVELOP PEOPLE SO THAT WHEN THEY LEAVE THEY ARE BETTER PREPARED FOR TOMORROW THAN THEY WERE WHEN THEY ARRIVED.
Over to you ...

Tom introduced The Excellence Dividend at the University of Auckland Business School. The first of his appearances for the book promotion was at their event for International Women's Day. If you were in the audience, we hope you enjoyed it!
As the battle over the Affordable Care Act is waged in Congress, the uncertainty grows for those whose job it is to deliver healthcare to our rapidly aging population. Tom is in San Francisco speaking to the leaders of one of the largest U.S. healthcare providers, Dignity Health.
He remains steadfast: The theme of the speech is Excellence. (What else?) Striving toward excellence in all patient-staff interactions remains the best defense against the madness of the times. Though Tom insists on calling Excellence not "defense," but "offense"—that is, as he told us, "taking the lead and pre-empting the change with superb patient interactions in terms of outcomes and the experience the care provider offers."
