The Essence of Excellence, Creating a Culture of Continuous Improvement

Essence of Excellence book cover

Over the last 5 years Peter Hines and Chris Butterworth have conducted research in over 100 companies worldwide. Of these, around 40 have shown themselves to have, in their different ways, the Essence of Excellence they were looking for. This has culminated in the book, The Essence of Excellence, which was launched in January.

In the book, Peter and Chris explored what separates the really great from the merely good? The answer lies not in what you see, or the tools people use, but in the feel, the pure essence of these organisations. It is the mind-set, the language, the confidence and the sheer passion for excellence. What these sites do have is a set of Principle-led Behaviours, effective Core Operating Systems and a very sustainable approach.

In today’s fast moving world we are committed to bringing you the latest possible information. We will therefore update the physical and kindle copy of this book when further material or references become available. By way of example we have already been able to include some new references to Frank Devine, Pádraig Garvey, W. Twomey and P Whyte. Our agile clock speed will be fastest for the kindle version but we will also update the copy of the physical book at each print run.
