People often ask what motivates you to undertake these huge research projectsIt s a good uestion The answer is curiosityThere is nothing I find exciting than picking a uestion that I don t know the answer to and embarking on a uest for answers It s deeply satisfying to climb into the boat like Lewis and Clark and head west saying We don t know what we will find when we get there but we ll be sure to let you know when we get backThis undaunted curiosity is the stimulus of this work proclaims the author in the beginning justifying why he got down to such a grueling task Though this book is exclusively for the management students and for the corporate guys I still feel this book is very well researched and can be read by them also who have the least interests in companies and businesses This book is a result of the hard toil of a large research team of Jim Collins after Built to Last If you read it you will find the reason why millions of copies have been sold of this Wall Street Journal s CEO council declared it the best management book they have readThis book is all about why some companies leap from good to great and others don tThe first thing it tries to preach is that Good is the enemy of greatFew people attain greatness in large part because it is just so easy to settle for a good life Next the book talks about a kind of Level 5 leadership leaders of a paradoxical mix of personal humility and professional willthey are fanatically driven infected with an incurable need to produce sustainable results they display workmanlike diligence plow horse than show horse they look out of a window to attribute success to factors other than themselvesIn the subseuent chapters comes the idea of choosing the right guys It s important first getting the right people on the bus and wrong people off the bus and then figure out where to drive itThen there is a Stockdale Paradox in this book which is eually applicable in any field of life Retain faith that you will prevail in the end regardless of the difficultiesAnd at the same time Confront the most brutal facts of your current reality whatever they might beThere are many other concepts outlined in this book they look technical so much business involved in them but they are uite handy even to the simpler minds uite comprehensible even to those ordinary mortals like me The research done for this book may have taken a huge amount of resources time and energy but as a conseuence the major findings and learnings of this project are rather uncomplicated The key elements of greatness are deceptively simple and straightforward I feel this book is a wonderful exhibition of undemanding intelligence encrusted with due diligence In the end Even if you think in contrast If you think you are already gratified to the goodness around you and think after reading the title of this bookWhy greatness I don t need that Then the book has an answer for you as well It says it s almost a nonsense uestion If you are engaged in a work that you love and care about for whatever reason then the uestion needs no answer The uestion is not why but how

Okay let s get this out of the way first this book is DATED It studies eleven companies that beat the stock market over a period of fifteen years irrespective of industry other comparison companies in the same industries did not produce the same results Unfortunately these eleven companies include Fannie Mae Circuit City Wells Fargo and Philip Morris The findings are ultimately interesting and I think the writers would argue that the recent performance of the companies don t affect the findings validity but boy is it a trip to read about Wells Fargo as a paragon of excellence in the year 2019James Collins wrote this with a large group of researchers and the methodology and results are explained in detail in the extensive appendices at the end of the book They distill their findings into seven key themes around what helps a company go from mediocre to truly great which they define as beating the stock market by a certain margin over a long period of time I realize that I am reading a business book and by default there needs to be a core metric by which we recognize businesses as good or great but I had some trouble with the complete disregard for social impact that powers this book Collins says that looking at employee or social welfare would have introduced biases into the study but I would also say that there is an inherent bias in defining a business s greatness solely by its stock returns and shareholder value which is why you end up with Philip Morris in your group of great companies Your definition for success is not the same as mine It s also interesting that the research group tends to handwave around employee motivation morale and fulfillment for all of the great companies as a natural outcome of business success but does not offer any metrics or background on this in the text of the bookAll that aside I found some of the takeaways truly interesting Charisma is detrimental to leadership The good to great companies all had Level 5 leaders which the research group defines as a leader who is incredibly driven but extremely humble The Level 5 leaders aren t charismatic or larger than life figures they center their companies on one purpose and build strong systems that move the entire company in one direction The true tell of this type of leader is if the company survives and flourishes after they leave are you worried about your CEO or about the reality of your situation Charismatic outside leaders produced consistently worse results and the companies stagnated after their departure It s also worth noting that executive compensation had absolutely no measurable effect on a company s success Managing morale and motivation is largely a waste of time If employees instinctively understand the vision of the company and how they contribute to its success there is no reason to motivate or spend time managing change I don t think this is ever 100% true and it is precluded by the necessity to have the right people in the right roles but I found this perspective interesting and the examples rang true to me Stay focused on your central concept The book refers to this as the Hedgehog Concept a term that I refuse to use It combines the Venn diagram of these three things 1 what are you truly passionate about 2 what drives your economic engine and 3 what can you be best in the world at If you aren t driving towards an intersection of all three you will not be able to achieve sustained results This reuires a culture of discipline throughout all levels of the company Understand the brutal reality The successful companies understood the brutal facts of reality when making business decisions and candidly discussed and planned for that reality That sometimes reuires an entire business shift to align yourself with your central concept When you see user or customer research that upends your assumptions do not ignore it This also reinforces the need for long term investment The writers point was that you cannot be an optimist this will all work out but you must confront reality and simultaneously strongly believe that you will succeed despite the odds You also must create an environment where the truth is heard which reuires the leaders to ask uestions hold themselves to high standards and build red flag mechanisms to get advance notice of issuesAnyway I found the book both interesting and frustrating to read The research team commits the cardinal sin of all business books which is comparing every single concept to a famous thinker Einstein did not model simplistic thinking has this man ever read a proof of E mc2 get back to me after you have done it and Abraham Lincoln is not comparable to a CEO I wish that these types of comparisons could be completely excised from our discourse I rolled my eyes through much of this nonsense and it really detracted from my engagement with the bookI also found it frustrating that diversity of thought and teams never comes up in this book Every single CEO mentioned is a man and most of the named executives at these companies are men You can read into the concept of getting the right people on the bus as assembling the correct team but then the book goes on to say that employee incentives and compensation matter much less than you think they do That depends on who you are hiring and what their personal priorities are and that will always differ for individuals I did like that part of the leadership discussion hinges on whether internal or external leadership is better for a company most of the Level 5 leaders in the book are internal choices which intuitively makes sense because they are able to fully grasp the core concept and values of the companyFinally it is hilarious to read sentences like com the reigning champion of e commerce and today we primarily use portables from companies like Dell and Sony 2001 was a wild time 2019 is a wild time In the last 18 years these good to great companies have imploded in on themselves Hopefully the lessons from this book endure longer than Fannie Mae s reputation
