    Story
    (1912)

    Built To Last, the defining management study of the 90s, showed how great companies triumph over time and how long-term sustained performance can be engineered into the DNA of an enterprise from the very beginning. But what about companies that are not born with great DNA? How can good companies, mediocre companies, even bad companies achieve enduring greatness?

    Overall

    The principals described in this book just make sense, therefore required reading. There may be other things that also help companies go from good to great, but its hard to argue against the logic of these principals. Thank you Jim for synthesizing them so nicely.

    As for the criticism regarding the eventual downturn of companies in the study sample, Jim answers this clearly at the end of the book. In short this book is not about companies - its about principals. Some companies eventually stop adhering to the principals to their detriment.
