Good To Great by Jim Collins

In quest of my Strategy & Strategic Thinking I come across the following book. It gives excellent text on why some companies do it & other fails. Must read.

Good To Great - Why Some Companies Make the Leap ... and Others Don't by Jim Collins


Good is the enemy of great.

And that is one of the key reasons why we have so little that becomes great.

We don't have great schools, principally because we have good schools. We don't have great government, principally because we have good government. Few people attain great lives, in large part because it is just so easy to settle for a good life. The vast majority of companies never become great, precisely because the vast majority become quite good-and that is their main problem.

I found e-Book version of this available in http://bookfiesta4u.blogspot.com/
