Good to great

Synopsis

Five years ago, Jim Collins asked the question, "Can a good company become a great company and if so, how?" In Good to Great Collins, the author concludes that it is possible, but finds there are no silver bullets.



Collins and his team of researchers began their quest by sorting through a list of 1,435 companies, looking for those that made substantial improvements in their performance over time. They finally settled on 11--including Fannie Mae, Gillette, Walgreens, and Wells Fargo--and discovered common traits that challenged many of the conventional notions of corporate success. 

Making the transition from good to great doesn't require a high-profile CEO, the latest technology, innovative change management, or even a fine-tuned business strategy.


At the heart of those rare and truly great companies was a corporate culture that rigorously found and promoted disciplined people to think and act in a disciplined manner.

故事梗概

五年前,詹姆• 柯林斯提出了这样一个问题:“一家优秀的公司可以成为一家卓越的公司么?如果可以,怎样实现呢?”在《从优秀走向卓越》一书中,作者认为并非不可能,但是却没有抵达成功彼岸的捷径。




克林斯和调查组成员对1435家公司进行了资料分析,力图找出经营效益提高迅速的企业。最终,他们锁定了包括范妮梅斯押贷款金融公司,吉列公司,全美最大的药品连锁店沃尔格林斯,美国富国银行等11家公司, 发现这些公司的成功轨迹与传统的成功理念完全不同。





一个公司从成功走向卓越并不需要一位高调的首席执行官,最前沿的技术,创新的管理方法,甚至是完美无缺的企业发展战略。




这些为数极少却非常出色的公司都具有一个共同的文化特点:鼓励自律的员工按照规定的方式思考和行动。






 

Comment

Peppered with dozens of stories and examples from the great and not so great, the book offers a well-reasoned road map to excellence that any organization would do well to consider.  Good to Great is one of those books that managers and CEOs will be reading and rereading for years to come.
