Publisher's Summary

A companion guide to the number one best-selling Good to Great, focused on implementation of the flywheel concept, one of Jim Collins’ most memorable ideas that has been used across industries and the social sectors and with start-ups.

The key to business success is not a single innovation or one plan. It is the act of turning the flywheel, slowly gaining momentum and eventually reaching a breakthrough. Building upon the flywheel concept introduced in his groundbreaking classic Good to Great, Jim Collins teaches listeners how to create their own flywheel, how to accelerate the flywheel’s momentum, and how to stay on the flywheel in shifting markets and during times of turbulence.

Combining research from his Good to Great labs and case studies from organizations like Amazon, Vanguard, and the Cleveland Clinic that have turned their flywheels with outstanding results, Collins demonstrates that successful organizations can disrupt the world around them - and reach unprecedented success - by employing the flywheel concept.

audible version misses the charts

While the audible version was well narrated, there were many charts and graphs that one would never be able to fully appreciate via audio.

Great addition to Jim's books! I recommend!

I really liked this monograph audio book. I'm always looking for better ways to filter all of my good ideas everyday. The flywheel will help with this!
I ended up buying the physical book too because I wanted to see the graphics and examples.

That’s it?

I thought there would be more to this. Not worth it. Maybe he needed to put out another “book” to satisfy his contract.
