5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended, 27 Aug 2009
This review is from: Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap...and Others Don't (Hardcover)
This is a very useful book, and recommended reading for any senior exec, business owner. After 30 years in business I am pretty sure that Jim Collins et al's findings are spot on. How often have you seen a business where the ego of the owner that was once so valuable in the start up phase becomes a problem to the development of a business, where the wrong people are in the wrong Jobs. Having come into a business and been allowed to make changes by getting rid of the wrong people and replacing with the right I can only only say that the difference in the business is incredible. People come to me with solutions, not problems, I have to send them home or they would stay till 10pm the trick is now not to demotivate. Simple idea in the main but well worth taking note of and interesting analysis of the personality of the good to great leader, not what you would expect at all. Recommended
