Product description

Review

"A sensible, well-timed and precisely targeted message for companies shaken by macroeconomic crises"--Financial Times

"Collins and Hansen draw some interesting and counterintuitive conclusions from their research....far from a dry work of social science. Mr. Collins has a way with words, not least with metaphor."--Wall Street Journal

Entrepreneurs and business leaders may find the concepts in this book useful for making choices to increase their odds of building a great company.--Booklist --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

Jim Collins is a student and teacher of what makes great companies tick, and a Socratic advisor to leaders in the business and social sectors. Having invested more than a quarter-century in rigorous research, he has authored or coauthored six books that have sold in total more than 10 million copies worldwide. They include Good to Great, Built to Last, How the Mighty Fall, and Great by Choice.

Driven by a relentless curiosity, Jim began his research and teaching career on the faculty at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, where he received the Distinguished Teaching Award in 1992. In 1995, he founded a management laboratory in Boulder, Colorado.

In addition to his work in the business sector, Jim has a passion for learning and teaching in the social sectors, including education, healthcare, government, faith-based organizations, social ventures, and cause-driven nonprofits.

In 2012 and 2013, he had the honor to serve a two-year appointment as the Class of 1951 Chair for the Study of Leadership at the United States Military Academy at West Point. In 2017, Forbes selected Jim as one of the 100 Greatest Living Business Minds.
