Review: Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap... and Others Don't

Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap... and Others Don't Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap... and Others Don't by James C. Collins
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Interesting book explaining how a group of companies made it from Good to Great.
The author together with a group of researchers analyzes them and finds the common key princicples about them which are:
-1. Level 5 leadership
- 2. First who…then what (Get the right people)
- 3. Confront the brutal facts (yet never lose faith)
- 4. The Hedgehog concept (Great companies are very focused, they just do ONE thing really well)
- 5. A culture of discipline
- 6. Technology accelerator (They use technology as a vehicle)

Consistency to all these principles eventually leads good companies becoming a great company.
