Product Description

Ten years after the worldwide bestseller Good to Great, Jim Collins returns with another groundbreaking work, this time to ask: why do some companies thrive in uncertainty, even chaos, and others do not?

Based on nine years of research,buttressed by rigorous analysis and infused with engaging stories, Collins and his colleague Morten Hansen enumerate the principles for building a truly great enterprise in unpredictable, tumultuous and fast-moving times.

This book is classic Collins: contrarian, data-driven and uplifting.

Industry Reviews
Jim Collins ... is the most influential management thinker alive * Fortune *
For this guru, no question is too big * New York Times *
A sensible, well-timed and precisely targeted message for companies shaken by macroeconomic crises * Financial Times *
Jim Collins has built a reputation as something of a myth buster ... This book is recommended * Financial World *
"Luck is not a strategy" the authors conclude. What determines any organization's success is how it prepares for both good and bad luck. They call this getting a "positive return" on luck and, if Good to Great's four million-plus sales are anything to go by, this idea will be embedded in corporate speak before you know it -- Philip Delves Broughton, author of What They Teach you At Harvard Business School * Management Today *
