Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Can a good company become a great one? If so, how?

After a five-year research project, Jim Collins concludes that good to great can and does happen. In this book, he uncovers the underlying variables that enable any type of organisation to make the leap from good to great while other organisations remain only good. Rigorously supported by evidence, his findings are surprising - at times even shocking - to the modern mind.

Good to Great achieves a rare distinction: a management book full of vital ideas that reads as well as a fast-paced novel. It is widely regarded as one of the most important business books ever written.

Read this book if you are in business

What's odd about this book is that so few companies follow the advice that the research yielded. As we endure the Silicon valley-VC phenomenon, the focus on short term gain, charismatic founders proves the findings in the book. They don't last.

Research is key

I find myself often giving out 5 stars to books who do an overwhelming amount of research, perhaps this is one the traits that make a book great ;D

Gold standard for business.

Having built a great business, I began to feel a little lost and no longer had some of the initial vision I had building my business. This book has reminded me of the steps I took initially and has oriented me back on the path to greatness.
