Tom Peters Re-Imagine! presentation slides

Check out the slides for "Tom Peter's: Re-Imagine! - Business Excellence in a Disruptive Age" presentation. It's very thought-provoking.

The bottom line is that durable success comes from continuous innovation, continuously doing things that are "remarkable."

Something that resonates with one of my ongoing thoughts is "Innovation, not optimization."

Just a few of his points:

  • Dream Merchants
  • Distinct or Extinct
  • Conceptual Age: creators and empathizers
  • Talent: develop it and manage it
  • Weird people, Freaks
  • Women rule
  • R-Directed Thinking: simultaneous, metaphorical, aesthetic, contextual, synthetic
    (as contrasted with L-directed thinking: sequential, literal, functional, textual, analytic)
  • The suppression of creative genius
  • Crazy world (CW)
  • Passion, enthusiasm - The Passion Imperative
  • Start a crusade
  • Create a cause, not a business
  • A grand adventure
  • Discover your greatness
  • Lead the action faction
  • Dispense enthusiasm
  • You must be the change you wish to see in the world -- Gandhi
  • Free the lunatic within
  • You've got to be out there on the lunatic fringe -- Jack Welch

-- Jack Krupansky
