Inhaltsangabe

Built to Last, the defining management study of the '90s, showed how great companies triumph over time and how long-term sustained performance can be engineered into the DNA of an enterprise from the very beginning.

But what about companies that are not born with great DNA? How can good companies, mediocre companies, even bad companies achieve enduring greatness? Are there those that convert long-term mediocrity or worse into long-term superiority? If so, what are the distinguishing characteristics that cause a company to go from good to great?

Over five years, Jim Collins and his research team have analyzed the histories of 28 companies, discovering why some companies make the leap and others don't. The findings include:

  • Level 5 Leadership: A surprising style, required for greatness
  • The Hedgehog Concept: Finding your three circles, to transcend the curse of competence
  • A Culture of Discipline: The alchemy of great results
  • Technology Accelerators: How good-to-great companies think differently about technology
  • The Flywheel and the Doom Loop: Why those who do frequent restructuring fail to make the leap

Kritikerstimmen

"Like Built to Last, Good to Great is one of those books that managers and CEOs will be reading and rereading for years to come." (Amazon.com review)
"If you believe that a visionary leader with a strong ego is an essential component of sustained business success, then Jim Collins has a few thousand words for you. His carefully researched audiobook explains that the success of companies that outperform the market for 15 years in a row comes from selfless leadership, rigorous focus, and a culture of discipline....[T]here's another reason this book has burst through as a bestseller, which you can feel in Collins's narration: He is honestly excited about his research and unconventional findings.

Useful principles but outdated

Tried to read it for a second time. Core principles are simple and can be found in the net. Data is outdated. No suited for entrepreneurs (better go with 0 to 1 or lean startup)

Outstanding!

Die Erkenntnisse dieser Untersuchung sollten der Maßstab eines jeden Unternehmens und Organisation an sich selbst sein!
Das Bild des idealen Chefs widerspricht an so vielen Stellen dem, was man heute erlebt. Hoffentlich dauert es nicht 20 Jahre, bis diese Erkenntnisse Schule machen.
@ Jim: Vielen Dank!

Great principles to make a good company a great on

Welcher Moment von Good to Great ist Ihnen besonders im Gedächtnis geblieben?

Three core disciplines.

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Fantastic, although very long, audio book.
You can almost take the lessons as a step by step guide to turn a good company into a great one. Great read/audio book for any leader, brave enough to go to greatness.

A lot of interesting stories but not convincing

The audiobooks repeats too many times the same points. Plus: No novelty and only scraching on the surface - tries to draw a line between good and great but doesnt take into account that reality is not black and white. Not for young Enterpreneurs or people on their Career path.
