Thank you!In 1991 I wrote a column on the power of thank-you notes. (Reprinted in these pages two weeks ago.) It drew, by far, the greatest number of comments I've received for a single column among the 524 I've written.Some of you sent me thank-you notes. Almost all testified to the extraordinary impact of saying thanks.So, belatedly, it's my turn to thank you, my readers, from Seoul to San Jose. The occasion is the cessation of this column. In short, I've decided to give my Ball Pentel Fine Point R50 pen and Weston Bowl Mill wooden laptop writing desk a rest.

Editor's note: Tom Peters is on vacation. This column first appeared in 1992.About 20 people, employed mostly in management-training activities, work in the Palo Alto, Calif., offices of the Tom Peters Group, or TPG (as we call it).I like my colleagues. And since I spend a lot of time in Vermont these days, I'm always pleasantly surprised at how nice it is to be back around "the gang."This is no advertisement. We have good days. We have bad days. We win business we deserve to win, lose business we deserve to lose.

Perot and HooverI read with some concern your recent extensive article on H. Ross Perot, particularly as it dealt with his need to find dirt on the sexual lives of his enemies.This concerned me and brought back thoughts of J. Edgar Hoover, who kept a dossier on people he no longer trusted or liked.This type of power and control concerns me and makes me wonder if someone such as Mr. Perot should even have the responsibility of a high office.Alan H.

A Dutch doctor managing a company clinic has a "frank discussion" with a Chinese subordinate, who has some readily correctable shortcomings. The Chinese doctor, who sees his boss as a "father figure," takes the criticism as "a savage indictment" -- and commits suicide. The problem, according to Dutch business consultant Fons Trompenaars: "American and Dutch managers . . . do not understand the principle of losing face."Trompenaars' book, "Riding the Waves of Culture," is a masterpiece. Based on meticulous quantitative research, as well some 900 seminars presented in 18 countries, it claims that most American management theorizing, by the likes of Peter Drucker and Tom Peters, is next to useless.

(Tom Peters has asked several colleagues to guest-author his column while he is traveling abroad. This is the last of five guest columns. Mr. Peters returns next week.)"I think an institution should have a sense of urgency," IBM Chairman Lou Gerstner recently told Fortune magazine. Eastman Kodak Chairman Kay Whitmore echoed that conviction his company's 1993 shareholders meeting: "A shared sense of urgency" is now running through the company, he promised.But if urgency is the new watchword, what urgent actions signal that we've heard the call?

AND THE WINNER IS . . .A handful of key ideas are transforming business. Here's my Top Six list:No. 6. Total quality management. Superior quality is a must for competitive success these days. Problem is, everybody's doin' it (the Indonesians, Thais, Argentines, et al.). Though imperative, top-notch quality is no more than a player's pass to the ball field. Those who raise the TQM banner above all others are making a big mistake. TQM is about stuff that works unerringly. A big deal? Yes. The whole deal?
