“Good to Great “ Over a period of five years Jim Collins together with his research team looked at the history of 28 very successful companies.
Why is it that some companies enjoy success and longevity while others do not? The study was carried out during the nineties with a view of finding what it is that distinguishes the great companies from the mediocre, this audiobook centers on the performance of the 11 various companies that have achieved very high and sustained performance.
Some of the distinguishing characteristics of those highly successful companies are as follows:
1. Leadership was found to be of a very high quality.
2. The hedgehog concept: transcending the curse of competence by finding your three circles.
3. A culture of discipline.
How the great companies approach to technology is different. The flywheel and the doom loop: a concept whereby companies that restructure in a radical fashion fail to make the grade. The concepts and conclusions discussed in this audiobook are derived from extensive research and analysis resulting in seven recommended practices which can be used in any leadership situation.
