"The Peter Principal
and other insightful
by Paul Baker


About the Preclinic:  

The Peter Principle: And other insightful theorems.

Is the Peter Principle just pure cynicism or does it provide a basis for organizational management? Learn what Laurence Peter really had in mind when he declared: “Employees tend to rise to their level of incompetence“, how to ‘manage upward’ and mitigate the threat of impending organizational doom.

About the Program:  

The Principles of Tom Peters: Are they still relevant today?

Tom Peters published In Search of Excellence in 1982 to prove how crucial people are to business success and to turn 'soft' factors into hard ones, when previously the only ‘hard’ factors were considered to be the 'numbers'. Are these ‘principles’ still relevant today? How do Peters’ eight Common Themes differ from Deming’s Fourteen Points? Learn more and join in the discussion!
