IN THIS SUMMARY
In Liberation Management, Tom Peters aspires to new revolutionary heights by literally turning readers on their heads and shaking out all the mundane, conventional wisdom left rattling around. Peters makes the point that these are crazy times that require crazy organizations and crazy people capable of dealing with the fast, fleeting, and fickle. These observations came in the wake of a 1991 Sony deal worth one billion dollars with American rock star, Michael Jackson and Matsushita’s seven billion dollar purchase of MCA/Universal. Using scores of case studies from every corner of the world economy, Peters demonstrates how extraordinary transformations are being accomplished by real people in real organizations, and how liberating the new structures can be.
