The fastest-selling book at the conference was a new volume titled 301 Great Management Ideas from America's Most Innovative Small Companies, edited by Inc. 's former managing editor Sara P. Noble. It's a collection of items from Hands On, probably the most popular part of this magazine over the years. The tips appear one to a page and cover everything from holding a successful meeting to getting the most from your employees. In addition, you get an introduction by Tom Peters, in which he discusses the relationship between "small ideas" and competitive advantage.c
And That's Not All! The book also features an Idea Sweepstakes for companies willing to share their own management tips. The company submitting the best ideas overall will see them published in a special edition of this column, along with a company photo, and will receive free admission for one to a session of Tom Peters's famous "Skunk Camp," courtesy of The Tom Peters Group.
