    Good to Great - Why Some...

    The Challenge Built to Last, the defining management study of the nineties, showed how great companies triumph over time and how long-term sustained performance can be engineered into the DNA of an enterprise from the verybeginning.  
    But what about the company that is not born with great DNA? How can good companies, mediocre companies, even bad companies achieve enduring greatness?  
    The Study For years, this question preyed on the mind of Jim Collins. Are there companies that defy gravity and convert long-term mediocrity or worse into long-term superiority? And if so, what are the universal distinguishing characteristics that cause a company to go from good to great?  
    The Standards Using  tough benchmarks, Collins and his research team identified a set of elite companies that made the leap to great results and sustained those results for at least fifteen years. How great? After the leap, the good-to-great companies generated cumulative stock returns that beat the general stock market by an average of seven times in fifteen years, better than twice the results delivered by a composite index of the world's greatest companies, including Coca-Cola, Intel, General Electric, and Merck. 
    The Comparisons The research team contrasted the good-to-great companies with a carefully selected set of comparison companies that failed to make the leap from good to great. What was different? Why did one set of companies become truly great performers while the other set remained only good?  
    Over five years, the team analyzed the histories of all twenty-eight companies in the study. After sifting through mountains of data and thousands of pages of interviews, Collins and his crew discovered the key determinants of greatness -- why some companies make the leap and others don't.  
    The Findings The findings of the Good to Great study will surprise many readers and shed light on virtually every area of management strategy and practice. The findings include:Level 5 Leaders: The research team was  shocked to discover the type of leadership required to achieve greatness. The Hedgehog Concept (Simplicity within the Three Circles): To go from good to great requires transcending the curse of competence. A Culture of Discipline: When you combine a culture of discipline with an ethic of entrepreneurship, you get the magical alchemy of great results. Technology Accelerators: Good-to-great companies think differently about the role of technology. The Flywheel and the Doom Loop: Those who launch radical change programs and wrenching restructurings will almost certainly fail to make the leap. 
    “Some of the key concepts discerned in the study,” comments Jim Collins, "fly in the face of our modern business culture and will, quite frankly, upset some people.”  
    Perhaps, but who can afford to ignore these findings?

In a single, brief, easy-to-read volume, Tracy summarizes the essential information every manager must know to attract the most capable, committed employees and to make sure they continue to be active contributors to the company for years to come.
    For each of these 21 techniques, Tracy discusses the underlying principle and offers an Action Exercise that enables readers to apply the technique immediately and see the results for themselves. Filled with proven, practical knowledge, Hire and Keep the Best People distills years of hard-won wisdom into a quick and easy set of techniques, offering managers effective steps they can take today to find, select, hire, orient, train, and retain the best people for their business.

    This book – just like your personal finances – is a journey.  If you want to take control of your financial life, you need to be inspired.  You need the “why”.  Why am I going to spend time and energy on this?  Why am I going to make temporary sacrifices, work harder and skip buying some of the things I want?   
     
    If you can’t answer those questions, don’t buy this book.  In fact, don’t buy any personal finance books and don’t even try to improve your finances.  It all starts with the why.  However, if you have an answer to the why – to retire early, to become financially independent, to help put your kids through school, to save a million dollars – keep reading.     
     
    This book will open your eyes to what’s possible and how to make it possible.  Through ten concise, easy to understand lessons, you’ll be inspired to achieve and you’ll be given the knowledge (along with some tips and tricks) to make it happen.
