I don't have much to add to the other reviews here on the content, but as a couple of reviewers here have pointed out, there's a problem with the way they reached their conclusions. They chose a series of metrics as indicators of "excellence": they ranked companies on these metrics to identify a sample of "excellent companies": they then profiled these companies to find common features. Statisticians call this "selecting on the dependent variable": all excellent companies might have a certain feature, but you can only say that the feature has something to do with their excellence if non-excellent companies don't have it. The features that Peters picks out might be important, but the research they do doesn't in any way prove that.
There was a follow-up piece of research done some years later (not by the authors) in a paper called "excellence revisited", which argued that excellence was basically a temporary phenomenon, and that even these companies reverted to the mean. This looked at the "excellent companies" subsequent performance and found that on average, they had deteriorated significantly in all measures of performance. They then picked a sample of "non-excellent companies" using the same ranking criteria as the original book did at the time that the original research was done. Sure enough, these on average improved significantly in performance.

Format: Taschenbuch
This book was the 1982 best-selling look at what were then excellent companies and an attempt to distill the eight attributes they had in common. It still ranks high as an important historical contribution, but two-thirds of the "excellent" companies disappeared, got acquired and disassembled, or went through extreme difficulties. Hindsight tells us the eight attributes were simply things those companies did well at the time, but were not the answer to longevity. In fact, at least five of the eight attributes appear to be detrimental now. However, this book is still a good read for those wishing to track the evolution of management thinking from at least early Drucker to the present.

Format: Taschenbuch
A classic guru-book, cited by many business schools. However you cannot take this book seriously from a scientific point of view. Nice anecdotes, but no empirical evidence. In contrary: a lot of firms that are presented as succesful according to this book have had serious problems or went out of business since then. Nice for a plane read, not to be taken seriously.

The notion that successful companies uniquely exhibit certain characteristics should have been demonstrated by comparing these companies with unsuccessful companies - by only having a successful population, no conclusions are valid.

How are great companies managed? What leads to their growth and sustained dominance of the marketplace? Peters and Waterman asked this question in 1982 and came up with answers which should have provided a scientific verification to the most idealistic prophets of capitalism. The answers were simple and constructive. Generally,
*Define yourself and your structure, then stick to the knitting.
*Nurture and reward employee excellence. Provide a climate of security and creativity in which employees developed loyalty and understanding of corporate values, and were in turn developed to their full potential.
*Establish long term customer relationships based on trust, high quality and value in products and service.
*Re-invest in and re-invent your company continuously within a defined sense of mission and social purpose.
Peters's and Waterman's project was to find what made the most successful companies of their time tick. In 1982 the hi-teck revolution, notably in personal computing, had just barely moved out of Steve Job's garage. A longstanding equilibrium between business prerogative and government intervention in issues of social equity and regulation of commerce, trade, workplace and markets had been in place since the Second World War. But this was under increasing pressure from well organized and financed corporate lobbies. Unsurprisingly at the end of this era of steady growth and popularly shared wealth the authors came up with a very positive take on corporate excellence and resultant success. Certainly some of these ideals are still ascendent in the most dynamic of business companies, the entrepreneurial sector. The case with bricks and mortar 'old' economic productive sector has been somewhat different.

Format: Taschenbuch
Life (and business) are a lot more fun if we are excited by and committed to what we are doing. This book reawakens our sense that organizations can be exciting and meaningful places to be, filled with the potential for great results and enormous beneficial impact.
We all have been touched by an outstanding leader and inspired to do more. Most of us would have a hard time spelling out what those leaders do. This book is a very practical guide to being a good example and a source of daily inspiration.
You can read other books to figure out what to inspire people to do specifically and so forth, but this one is unique. I suggest Peter Drucker's MANAGEMENT CHALLENGES FOR THE 21ST CENTURY as a good place to begin.
You may find that you do not "get" a particular recommendation. To deepen your understanding, I recommend that you read A PASSION FOR EXCELLENCE in those areas where you are unmoved or unclear. It is filled with examples on the same points as IN SEARCH OF EXCELLENCE.
I also like the title. Finding excellence is a never-ending task for us all.
If you want to read a terrific book on how successful companies differ from their less successful competitors, be sure to read BUILT TO LAST. It is also a great companion for IN SEARCH OF EXCELLENCE.
