- Title: In Search of Excellence
- Subtitle: Lessons from America’s Best-Run Companies
- Author: Thomas J. Peters and Robert H. Waterman
- Published in: 1982
- Why It’s On the List: Based on a study of forty-three of America’s best-run companies from a diverse array of business sectors, describes eight basic principles of management – action-stimulating, people-oriented, profit-maximizing practices – that made these organizations successful. Unfortunately, the “excellent” companies featured in the book mostly went smack down the toilet not long after it was first published. Curiously, it’s still considered a classic, which goes to show you that P.T. Barnum was right: a sucker IS born every minute.
