Successful Habits of Visionary Companies.
James Collins and Jerry Porras have examined eighteen exceptional and long-lasting companies, including General Electric, 3M, Hewlett-Packard and Procter & Gamble, and compared each one of its closest but less successful competitors, in order to discover just what has given it the edge over its rivals.
What they found out about success and management styles can be learnt and applied by the vast majority of all managers at all levels. This edition contains a new introduction and a new chapter which gives a practical "how to" framework for applying some of the authors' original ideas and concepts.
A fascinating historical study of the factors that made highly successfully companies what they are today.
