About this product
- SynopsisBuilt To Last, the defining management study of the nineties, showed how great companies triumph over time and how long-term sustained performance can be engineered into the DNA of an enterprise from the very beginning. But what about companies that are not born with great DNA? How can good companies, mediocre companies, even bad companies achieve enduring greatness? Are there those that convert long-term mediocrity or worse into long-term superiority? If so, what are the distinguishing characteristics that cause a company to go from good to great? Over five years, Jim Collins and his research team have analyzed the histories of 28 companies, discovering why some companies make the leap and others don't. The findings include: Level 5 Leadership: A surprising style, required for greatness. The Hedgehog Concept: Finding your three circles, to transcend the curse of competence. A Culture of Discipline: The alchemy of great results. Technology Accelerators: How good-to-great companies think differently about technology. The Flywheel and the Doom Loop: Why those who do frequent restructuring fail to make the leap.

A must for every business !
Amazing book. A definite must for any business !
It was recommended to me by a friend. Now I know why. It's an amazing learning experience.
It describes in detail companies that made it to greatness and comparison companies that did not and what methods both used.

If you are in business this is a must read. The concept is easy to understand and makes sense. The stats verify the metrology. Collins did a lot of research and you can relate to any size business or even an individual performance.

Helps Perspective To Get To Greatness...
If you are personally or as an organization looking for what will help get you from good to greatness do read or get the audio book Good To Great. Collins clearly explains what you need to do to get there. I didn't like the way there were things were measured by stock market performance but at the end of the day it did help me understand. I work for a smaller private company now so we measure performance a little differntly. Overall 2 thumbs up and would recommend this book to others.

One of the most important business books ever
Collins and his team of researchers really deliver something powerful in “Good To Great”. They show us how to set up an organization for the transition to greatness. An awesome collection of relevant information, organized, and packaged for learning. For anyone interested in taking their company, department, or church down a path where “great” is possible, get this book.

Good To Great
This is one of the best books written today about business practice. The book uses examples of two similar companies and explains what happened, good or bad, to each company that either lead to their demise or the reason they are considered a great company.
