Not enough time to attend an in-person SMPS book club? Feeling too much pressure to remember everything you read? Join the SMPS Boston Education Committee on Slack for this virtual book club!
Sign up to “attend” our book club on Good to Great, by Jim Collins, and SMPS will mail you a copy of the book and invite you to our #bookclub Slack channel. The week of March 12th, the committee will host a live discussion of the book via Slack. All week you can respond to questions, share your thoughts on the book, or pose your own questions on why some companies survive while others thrive and what it takes to go from Good to Great.
Excerpted from the Amazon review:
“Five years ago, Jim Collins asked the question, “Can a good company become a great company and if so, how?” In Good to Great Collins, the author of Built to Last, concludes that it is possible, but finds there are no silver bullets. Collins and his team of researchers began their quest by sorting through a list of 1,435 companies, looking for those that made substantial improvements in their performance over time….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. Peppered with dozens of stories and examples from the great and not so great, the book offers a well-reasoned road map to excellence that any organization would do well to consider. Like Built to Last, Good to Great is one of those books that managers and CEOs will be reading and rereading for years to come.”
