I bought this book to better understand the makings of great companies in the modern world. While this was the book's main focus, the findings focused around qualitative traits of company leaders and company culture. It did nothing to focus on quantitative decision making or the direction of the companies taken by management. It would be hard to apply the findings in this book when analyzing a company but rather more of a self help type of book. if you are a CEO and striving for better results this book would be for you.

Great examples of succesful stores! Lacking financial details to back up claims.

Must Read Book about business. To stay on my shelf, I have a feeling that I will be getting back to some of its chapters in future.

Good to Great is a profound book. It shifts the way you think about business, and about creating a company. Think Disney; IBM; Apple. What makes them so great?

Jim Collins shows you how - and it's all backed by solid research.

Good to Great is easily one of the best business books I have ever read (maybe one of the best ever written). I've read the book, listened to the audio about 10 times, have a book review from 100mustreads.com, and recommend it often. "Good is the enemy of great" is an adage that has stuck with me; it's simple but powerful, and speaks to the challenge many of us face in our careers and personal lives. To often we are happy with good, we are content, so how then do we become great? Jim Collins and his research team, have identified companies that have made the leap from "good to great" and shares 7 concepts that you can use in business and in life to make this leap. The book is not written on platitude or theory. It's a specific set of concepts and ideas anyone can use - although they are not necessarily easy. Best of all, Jim's writing style is easy to read and easy to consume. This is an outstanding book that every leader should be required to read.

We to several varieties of Management Planning and Leadership workshops and retreats. After searching all over for a book written more recently that works as well as Good to Great, I gave up. Even 14 years after its release, this is still the best vehicle to get managers, especially senior managers, to open their minds, get out of the box, "face the brutal facts" and challenge themselves to take their own companies to a higher level. We created worksheets with key questions that structurally requires them to read the book and make the connections to their own company, then use their worksheets in both small and large group discussions. Works beautifully in helping them come up with their own answers, and have the answers not "come from the consultant." If anyone has a more recent book that may work as well, I would love to learn about it.
