Abstract:

Can a good company become great, and if so, how does that transition process occur? To answer that question, the 40-year operating results of 1,435 established companies were analyzed. From that database, 11 companies were identified which had made a sustainable transition from being good (or average or mediocre) to great. How did these 11 companies become great, and are those lessons replicable? As Jim Collins explains in Good to Great, none of these companies launched radical or high profile change programs. Nor did they have a miracle moment where a flash of inspiration showed them the way to the "Promised Land". Instead, they used down-to-earth and pragmatic programs. In this compelling analysis, the author explains their good-to-great transition process.
