Product Description

About the Author

Collins is a management educator. He operates a management learning laboratory dedicated to conducting new research and working with executives.

Jim Collins is author or coauthor of six books that have sold in total more than ten million copies worldwide, including the bestsellers Good to Great, Built to Last, and How the Mighty Fall.

He now operates a management laboratory in Boulder, Colorado, where he conducts research, teaches, and consults with executives from the corporate and social sectors.

From AudioFile

Collins provides a rigorous analysis of how to apply business performance principles to the nonprofit sector of the economy. In these social sector organizations, in which the objectives are not primarily monetary, superior results depend on attracting talent and money and creating the brand momentum these agencies need to create the social good they intend. The author is a natural and perky narrator of this important little book--he's proud, enthusiastic, urgent, yet he charms his listeners rather than preaching or pushing them to buy into his ideas. This is a thinking person's piece that delivers new insights as well as gives clarity to well-known principles of organizational performance. As an audio experience, it's an expertly performed, indispensable lesson for anyone involved in running a nonprofit organization.

Format: Paperback
Collins does a superb job in this book. He has very provocative ideas on how to improve the public sector, which is all needed. Maybe his scope can be expanded, for, in so many nations, the social sectors are badly performaning. Especially in developing nations like China and India, such work is urgently needed. To understand about the larger issue, I recommend one nice book: China's global reach: markets, multinationals, and globalization by a Chinese journalist George Zhibin Gu, which reveals that there is so much to be done in the Chinese public sector, among other issues.
