    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.

    Decisions equal success - nothing happens until one is made. Businesses make millions of decisions every day. But once in a great while a leader makes a truly game-changing decision that shifts not only the strategy of a single company but how everyone does business. These big decisions are counterintuitive - they go against the conventional wisdom. In hindsight, taking a different direction may seem easy, but these bet-the-company moves involve drama, doubt, and high tension.

    Jim Collins and Mort Hansen, co-authors of the book Great By Choice, discuss their research on fundamental business concepts and why some companies excel in chaos, turbulence, and uncertainty while others do not. Jim describes it as the most fascinating analysis that he's ever been associated with in nearly 25 years of research. Some of those fascinating insights include the role of luck and innovation, their "triad of behaviors", as well as firing your "bullets" and then firing your "cannonballs".
