Abstract:

''This carefully researched and well-written book disproves most of the current management hype-from the cult of the superhuman CEO to the cult of IT to the acquisitions and merger mania. It will not enable medicrity to become competence. But it should enable competence to become excellence.'' (Peter F. Drucker) ''A book CEOs can't wait to buy.'' (USA Today) ''Collins and his research team have been tackling one of the biggest questions business has to offer.'' (Fortune) ''With both Good to Great and Built to last, Mr. Collins delivers two seductive messages : that great managements is attainable by mere mortals and that its practitioners can build great institutions, It's juste what us mortals want to hear.'' (Wall Street Journal) '' The difference is how hard Mr. Collins works to arrive at his simple conclusions. They are based on years of detailed, empirical research and are all the more powerful for producing such unexpected results.'' (Financial Times) ''The Business idea of the year.''(Fast Company) '' Collins again has written a book that seems built to last.'' (Business Week).
