What's Culture Got To Do with It?
If your strategy is to create synergies and economies of scale, while the culture is one where people work autonomously and in silos, the strategy could be impossible to achieve. And it only gets more complicated in a world where mergers, acquisitions, and alliances shape the corporate landscape. We know all too well that even with a respectful courtship, the expected benefits of merging two corporate cultures often fail to materialize. If only companies could simply snap together like plastic building blocks!
The most important asset in every company is the esprit de corps: the motivation and passion of each employee ... and ... their willingness to collaborate together on whatever strategic projects are critical for growth. At a time when 55% of the U.S. workforce is "actively disengaged" in their work at an annual productivity cost of $328 billion, understanding this esprit de corps element can greatly increase financial success. (Gallup Research, 2005.) How do you change this and bring culture into alignment with strategy?

Tom & Bob Waterman coauthored In Search of Excellence in 1982; the book was named by NPR (in 1999) as one of the "Top Three Business Books of the Century," and ranked as the "greatest business book of all time" in a poll by Britain's Bloomsbury Publishing (2002). Tom followed Search with a string of international bestsellers: A Passion for Excellence (1985, with Nancy Austin), Thriving on Chaos (1987), Liberation Management (1992: acclaimed as the "Management Book of the Decade" for the '90s), The Tom Peters Seminar: Crazy Times Call for Crazy Organizations (1993), The Pursuit of WOW!

In 2003 Tom and publisher Dorling Kindersley released Re-imagine! Business Excellence in a Disruptive Age; the revolutionary book, an immediate No.1 international best seller, aims to do no less than reinvent the business book through vibrant, energetic presentation of critical ideas.
