Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap…And Others Don’t talks about the crucial differences between companies that do passably good business and those that do exceptionally great business. After this initial discussion, the author explains that even though there is nothing wrong with “good,” that “good” can, and often does, prevent us from achieving more of our potential. Good will keep us satisfied with the current situation, and because of this satisfaction we may be unable and unwilling to try to achieve something better. This concept applies in business as well. While there are many companies that are good, there are only a few companies that excel at what they do. This means that there are many companies that are “stuck” with being “good.”
This book offers ways to understand what distinguishes between good and great companies and what each company should do in order to achieve being “great.” The research and suggestions make it excellent literature for businessmen.
