It’s hard to find a business leader who has not read Jim Collins’ Good to Great. Released 20 years ago, it might just be the most referenced business book of all time (think “get the right people on the bus”).
Collin’s most recent full length book, Great By Choice: Uncertainty, Chaos, and Luck--Why Some Thrive Despite Them All, was written with Morten T. Hansen. It’s received less attention, but packs just as much research-based punch.
Building on the lessons from Good to Great, the authors share principles discovered from companies that performed ten times better than their industry average amid a highly unstable business environment.

In a world facing more uncertainty than ever, Great by Choice offers timeless advice for any size company to succeed regardless of the economic environment. With Collin’s sound research approach, it’s advice you can take seriously.
