    The new question: Ten years after the worldwide bestseller Good to Great, Jim Collins returns to ask: Why do some companies thrive in uncertainty, even chaos, and others do not? In Great by Choice, Collins and his colleague, Morten T. Hansen, enumerate the principles for building a truly great enterprise in unpredictable, tumultuous, and fast-moving times. The new study: Great by Choice distinguishes itself from Collins’s prior work by its focus on the type of unstable environments faced by leaders today.

    Story

    How many times have you heard popular business authors say 'break all the rules', 'innovate or die', 'act now!' and 'be bold!'? All this sounds good, but is it true? Mr. Collins book brings a realistic, pragmatic and actionable view of what makes a business successful - amid all the hype. His book focuses on three success factors: fanatic discipline, empirical creativity and practical paranoia. Each of these factors grounded in significant research. For example, with the passing of Steve Jobs, there's lots of talk about the importance of innovation. Mr. Collins work puts innovation in proper perspective by showing that companies need a certain level of innovation in their companies to survive, but companies that innovated a lot, tended to get into trouble. This is where the book cuts through the hype and puts innovation into a realistic context.

    Who is this book for? Here's the amazing thing about this book: you can apply these principles to a major corporation, non-profit, church, or even to yourself! If you're a leader of any size organization, you'll walk away from this book with stuff you can start doing on Monday. This book continues Mr. Collins outstanding series of books: Built to Last, Good to Great - everyone of them a home run.
