Title: The Challenge: To Create More Value in All Negotiations

Welcome to Tom Peters
PowerPoint World! Beyond the set of slides
here, you will find at the last
eight years of presentations, a basketful of
Special Presentations, and, above all, Toms
constantly updated Master Presentationfrom which
most of the slides in this presentation are
drawn. There are about 3,500 slides in the 7-part
Master Presentation. The first five chapters
constitute the main argument Part I is context.
Part II is devoted entirely to innovationthe
sine qua non, as perhaps never before, of
survival. In earlier incarnations of the
master, innovation stuff was scattered
throughout the presentationnow it is front and
center and a stand-alone. Part III is a
variation on the innovation themebut it is
organized to examine the imperative (for most
everyone in the developed-emerging world) of an
ultra high value-added strategy. A value-added
ladder (the ladder configuration lifted with
gratitude from Joe Pine and Jim Gilmores
Experience Economy) lays out a specific logic for
necessarily leaving commodity-like goods and
services in the dust. Part IV argues that in
this age of micro-marketing there are two
macro-markets of astounding size that are
dramatically under-attended by all but a few
namely women and boomers-geezers. Part V
underpins the overall argument with the necessary
bedrockTalent, with brief consideration of
Education Healthcare. Part VI examines
Leadership for turbulent times from several
angles. Part VII is a collection of a dozen

2008 Broker's Clients Detail Web of Dashed
Dreams When Marcia Neilson couldn't qualify
for a home loan in early 2006 because of poor
credit, her mortgage broker, Nicole Lyder, had an
unusual solution Add Neilson's daughter to the
loan application. Neilson's 21-year-old
daughter had just lost her job, but Lyder
remained undeterred. That wasn't a problem,
Neilson recalled her broker saying. Neilson's
real estate agent said Lyder enlisted him to
drive Neilson and her daughter to Brockton City
Hall. The pair filled out a business certificate
that claimed they owned a hair salon in
Brockton. The Neilsons qualified for a mortgage
and bought a Dorchester house in June 2006 for
565,000. Last fall, Marcia Neilson learned from
state investigators looking into Lyder's business
practices that her loan application was padded in
other ways a statement for a 25,000 bank
account in Neilson's name that she had no
knowledge of. Fake documents, a phantom
borrower, and other irregularities were common
features of five subprime mortgages brokered by
Lyder between November 2005 and June 2006 that
were examined by the Boston Globe. Lyder's
clients ranged from the barely employed to
struggling working-class couples one had just
left a homeless shelter and two others gave up
government-subsidized housing to buy homes. They
said Lyder arranged loans that they later
realized had monthly payments that far exceeded
their means. All five loans are now in

quarter results were severely impacted by ongoing
dislocations in capital markets and the slowing
economy," said Kenneth D. Lewis, Bank of
America chairman and chief executive officer.
"However, we are cautiously optimistic about 2008
." TP translation We made total asses of
ourselves, allowing ourselves to be conned by a
bunch of out-of-touch Nobel-winning economists
with their portfolio-risk smoothing models.
Then, as inevitably happens amidst the madness of
crowds of executives bent upon keeping up with
the Joneses, we were flattened by that silly old
saw, That which goes up eventually comes down.

What would happen if we looked at a customer and
saw the face of God in them? To most people it
sounds like a lofty idea. But if you see the face
of God in a flower, why wouldnt you see it in
the face of a customer? If we treated customers
and honored the God within themif we loved
themwe would not need a quality program.

We made mistakes, of course. Most of them were
omissions we didnt think of when we initially
wrote the software. We fixed them by doing it
over and over, again and again. We do the same
today. While our competitors are still sucking
their thumbs trying to make the design perfect,
were already on prototype version 5. By the
time our rivals are ready with wires and screws,
we are on version 10. It gets back to planning

Warner/The Power of the Purse
AS LEADERS, WOMEN RULE New Studies find that
female managers outshine their male counterparts
in almost every measure TITLE/ Special
Report/ BusinessWeek
RULE Women make all the financial
decisions.Women control all the wealth. Women
substantially outlive men. Women start most of
the new businesses. Womens work force
participation rates have soared
worldwide. Women are closing in on same pay for
same job. Women are penetrating senior
ranks rapidly even if the pace is slow for
the corner office per se. Womens
leadership strengths are exceptionally well
aligned with new organizational effectiveness
value-added imperatives. Women are better
salespersons than men. Women buy almost
everythingcommercial as well as consumer
goods. So what exactly is the point of men?
One thing is certain Womens rise to power,
which is linked to the increase in wealth per
capita, is happening in all domains and at all
levels of society. Women are no longer content to
provide efficient labor or to be consumers with
rising budgets and more autonomy to spend.
This is just the beginning. The phenomenon will
only grow as girls prove to be more successful
than boys in the school system. For a number of
observers, we have already entered the age of
womenomics, the economy as thought out and
practiced by a woman. Aude Zieseniss de Thuin,
