Best thing I think could sum up this book is leaders need to manage a transition not change. Change is a single point in time, but that does not give us a chance to transition our psychological ties to the way things used to be and how our emotions and irrationalities get in the way of a successful transition. He gives great suggestions on dealing with it and IDENTIFYING it.

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?

I had heard this book had great info in it, but dry to read. Listening was a great way to get the info. The author's passion for this topic draws you in, given he reads it, and it engages you in the story. Recommend it!
