    Story
    (1681)

    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?

    Where does Good to Great rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the best audio books I have listened to or read for that matter. The reader is passionate about his work, honest when he is giving his opinion, and supported by the data his team put together.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Good to Great?

    The most memorable moment was the discussion of Kimberly Clark's CEO and the impression that you are left with that if you met these people, you would like them, and they probably would like you.


    Which character – as performed by Jim Collins – was your favorite?

    I liked that Jim Collins was himself and was not autocratic in evaluation of the data and decisions on what to include in the book.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Why great leaders are really like you and me.

  • The Goal: A Process of Ongoing Improvement - 30th Anniversary Edition

    Story

    In this intriguing business novel, which illustrates state-of-the-art economic theory, Alex Rogo is a UniCo plant manager whose factory and marriage are failing. To revitalize the plant, he follows piecemeal advice from an elusive former college professor who teaches, for example, that reduction in the efficiency of some plant operations may make the entire operation more productive. Alex's attempts to find the path to profitability and to engage his employees in the struggle involve the listener; and thankfully the authors' economic models.

    Story

    I felt like the story made me feel childlike or childish and that the presentation was dumbed down to the point that anyone could understand it. But instead of accomplishing its goal it made me feel as though if presented the material in a more challenging way that I would not have been understand it I just did not enjoy the story line
