The Challenge Built 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 verybeginning. But what about the company that is not born with great DNA? How can good companies, mediocre companies, even bad companies achieve enduring greatness? The Study For years, this question preyed on the mind of Jim Collins. Are there companies that defy gravity and convert long-term mediocrity or worse into long-term superiority? And if so, what are the universal distinguishing characteristics that cause a company to go from good to great? The Standards Using tough benchmarks, Collins and his research team identified a set of elite companies that made the leap to great results and sustained those results for at least fifteen years. How great? After the leap, the good-to-great companies generated cumulative stock returns that beat the general stock market by an average of seven times in fifteen years, better than twice the results delivered by a composite index of the world's greatest companies, including Coca-Cola, Intel, General Electric, and Merck. The Comparisons The research team contrasted the good-to-great companies with a carefully selected set of comparison companies that failed to make the leap from good to great. What was different? Why did one set of companies become truly great performers while the other set remained only good? Over five years, the team analyzed the histories of all twenty-eight companies in the study. After sifting through mountains of data and thousands of pages of interviews, Collins and his crew discovered the key determinants of greatness -- why some companies make the leap and others don't. The Findings The findings of the Good to Great study will surprise many readers and shed light on virtually every area of management strategy and practice. The findings include: Level 5 Leaders: The research team was shocked to discover the type of leadership required to achieve greatness. The Hedgehog Concept (Simplicity within the Three Circles): To go from good to great requires transcending the curse of competence. A Culture of Discipline: When you combine a culture of discipline with an ethic of entrepreneurship, you get the magical alchemy of great results. Technology Accelerators: Good-to-great companies think differently about the role of technology. The Flywheel and the Doom Loop: Those who launch radical change programs and wrenching restructurings will almost certainly fail to make the leap. “Some of the key concepts discerned in the study,” comments Jim Collins, "fly in the face of our modern business culture and will, quite frankly, upset some people.” Perhaps, but who can afford to ignore these findings?

Can a good company become a great one and, if so, how? After a five-year research project, Collins concludes that good to great can and does happen. In this book, he uncovers the underlying variables that enable any type of organization to make the leap from good to great while other organizations 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.

Every Summarease business book summary is written by an MBA graduate of a Top Ten business school with over 20 years of business experience. Our Summary & Analysis titles include everything contained in the 10-Minute Book Summary versions, plus a much more detailed summary of the material included in the book, some observations of our own about the concepts, and suggestions for related reading. Good to Great is our business religion at Summarease. Collins' best-selling business strategy book captures like no other the "fundamental physics" of why some companies are able to succeed despite adverse market conditions, while others fail. The genius of his work is in identifying pairs of companies whose circumstances are basically the same at a particular point in time but then diverge wildly and identifying the common factors that cause this divergence in pair after pair of comparison companies. The book is rich with anecdotes and profiles of the executives who made good to great happen at their companies. It brings to life and reinforces the basic findings, and it is fascinating and fun to read how Jim Collins and his team of researchers uncovered these stories and organized them into general principles. However, if you don't have the time or the inclination to devote several hours to reading the whole book, or you would like to get a quick preview to make sure it is for you before diving in, the information in this 10-minute summary will give you what you need to understand the basics of the Good to Great principles and begin to apply them to your company, the social sector or your life.
