In this unique episode, the team take on TWO business books by the same author, Jim Collins. Good to Great is an iconic business book that discusses the difference between “good” and “great” companies and the classic examples of the Hedgehog Concept and Getting the Right People On the Bus. More recently, Jim Collins updated this book with the new publication How the Mighty Fall – which takes into account the recent economic collapse and downfall of some of his previously considered “great” companies.
From Amazon: Collins discovered common traits that challenged many of the conventional notions of corporate success. Making the transition from good to great doesn’t require a high-profile CEO, the latest technology, innovative change management, or even a fine-tuned business strategy. At the heart of those rare and truly great companies was a corporate culture that rigorously found and promoted disciplined people to think and act in a disciplined manner.
