We held 23 in-depth interviews with the digital leads and winners of our benchmark studies. What is their secret and magic formula for digital dominance? What are the most important challenges they face? How do they excel in the digital arena and what does their roadmap for digital success look like? And most important: This book provides insight into how companies from different industries are working to enhance their online presence.
Peters then outlines eight "mundane" tools that every manager has at their fingertips. He described this article as a "tentative presentation" and "the first public expression of these ideas.
The Digital Excellence Challenge
In McKinsey's Munich office requested Peters to present his findings to Siemens, which provided the spur for Peters to create a slide two-day presentation. Word of the meeting reached the US and Peters was invited to present also to PepsiCo , but unlike the hyper-organised Siemens , the PepsiCo management required a tighter format than slides, so Tom Peters consolidated the presentation into eight themes.
These eight would form the chapters of In Search of Excellence. In , Waterman joined Peters, and, along with Waterman's friend Tony Athos and Richard Pascale - both academics - came together at a two-day retreat in San Francisco to develop what would become known as the 7-S Framework, the same framework that would organize In Search of Excellence.
The primary "innovative" theme that under-girded what would become In Search of Excellence was that "structure is not organization.
An organizational structure is not an organization. In December , Peters left the company, after agreeing to a fifty percent royalty split with McKinsey.
Later co-author Waterman stayed at the firm for three more years, but received no royalties from In Search of Excellence. A list of companies covered in the book, and their subsequent financial performance. This list includes only publicly traded companies. Peters and Waterman found eight common themes which they argued were responsible for the success of the chosen corporations.
The book devotes one chapter to each theme.

NCR , Wang Labs , Xerox and others did not produce excellent results in their balance sheets in the s. Rick Chapman titled his book on high-tech marketing fiascoes, In Search of Stupidity , as a nod to Peters's book and the disasters that befell many of the companies it profiled.
He notes that "with only a few exceptions In an article in Fast Company, cited below, Peters remarked that the criticism that "If these companies are so excellent, Peters, then why are they doing so badly now," in his opinion "pretty much misses the point. The research methodology employed by the authors of this book is also severely criticized by Phil Rosenzweigh in his book "The Halo Effect"  as the "Delusion of Connecting the Winning Dots".
Rosenzweigh opines that it was not possible to identify the traits that make a company perform simply by studying already-performing companies which Peters and Waterman did. Most of the "confessions" were humorously self-deprecating remarks In Search of Excellence had been "an afterthought One of them, however, used the term "faked data: BusinessWeek ran an article about Fast Company's article.
Webber , based on a six-hour interview with Peters.
Peters reviewed and approved the article prior to publication, but the actual phrase "we faked the data" was Webber's, and Peters had not actually used these words during the interview. This book provides insight into how companies from different industries are working to enhance their online presence.
