Product description

James Collins and Jerry Porras have examined eighteen exceptional and long-lasting companies, including General Electric, Boeing, Disney, Hewlett-Packard and Procter & Gamble, and compared each with one of its closest but less successful competitors, in order to discover just what has given it the edge over its rivals. What they found out about success and management styles can be learnt and applied by the vast majority of managers at all levels. The new final chapter looks at the implications of the internet - Built to Flip.

Review quote

"'A fascinating historical study of the factors that made high-octane companies what they are today.'" Fortune "'Offers valuable insights about the roots of sustained corporate greatness - the back-to-the-future approach is welcome. Indeed, it is remarkable.' " Harvard Business Review "'Collins and Porras will emerge as the gurus to watch over the next decade.' " The Director "'It's a very, very good book, and a great lesson for all of us at Starbucks that success is not an entitlement.'" -- Howard Schultz, CEO, Starbucks Coffee
