The Challenge

Built to Last, the defining administration research of the nineties, showed how excellent businesses triumph over time and how long-term sustained performance is designed into the DNA of an enterprise within the fairly beginning.

But what about the organization that is not born with good DNA? How will wise firms, mediocre businesses, even bad businesses achieve enduring greatness?

The Study

For years, this query preyed found on the notice of Jim Collins. Are there firms that defy gravity and convert long-term mediocrity or worse into long-term superiority? And if thus, what are the universal distinguishing characteristics that result a firm to go from wise to fantastic?

The Standards

Utilizing tough benchmarks, Collins and his analysis team identified a set of elite firms that prepared the leap to remarkable results and sustained those results for at least fifteen years. How fantastic? After the leap, the good-to-great businesses produced cumulative stock returns that beat the general stock marketplace by a typical of 7 instances in fifteen years, much better than twice the results delivered by a composite index of the worldÕs biggest firms, including Coca-Cola, Intel, General Electric, and Merck.

The Comparisons


The analysis team contrasted the good-to-great businesses with a carefully chosen set of comparison firms that failed to create the leap from wise to perfect. What was different? Why did 1 set of firms become really amazing performers while the additional set stayed just wise?

Over five years, the team analyzed the histories of all twenty-eight firms in the research. After sifting through mountains of information and thousands of pages of interviews, Collins and his team noticed the key determinants of greatness why some firms create the leap and others don't.

The Findings

The results of the Great to Great research may surprise countless visitors and shed light on almost every region of administration approach and practice. The results include:

* Level 5 Leaders: The analysis team was surprised to discover the sort of leadership needed to achieve greatness.
* The Hedgehog Concept (Simplicity in the Three Circles): To go from superior to perfect needs transcending the curse of competence.
* A Culture of Discipline: If you combine a culture of discipline with an ethic of entrepreneurship, you receive the magical alchemy of ideal results.
* Technology Accelerators: Good-to-great firms think differently about the part of development.
* The Flywheel and the Doom Loop: Those who release radical change programs and wrenching restructurings can virtually absolutely are not able to create the leap. 

Some of the key concepts discerned in the research, comments Jim Collins, "fly in the face of our contemporary company culture and can, very frankly, upset some folks. Perhaps, but who will afford to ignore these findings?
