The document herein attached is just what it says it is--a potpourri, a miscellaneous collection of my favorite recent essays on EXCELLENCE. (Tom Peters. EXCELLENCE. What else?) Several are recent additions--“The Moral Bedrock of Management” and “TRAINING: Investment #1.” The pair are responses to itches I've long intended to scratch in print; now I have. "The 34 BFOs/Blinding Flashes of the Obvious" is a summary document of just what the title says, obvious and vital itches that few too managers vigorously scratch. "Systems Have Their Place: SECOND Place" is, dare I say it, one of my favorite pieces that as far as I'm concerned has not gotten appropriate attention. The final duo--“PUTTING PEOPLE (Really) FIRST” and
"#1 Then/1982. #1 Now/2014: A BIAS FOR ACTION" are updated papers on my two favorites-forever topics.
