Built to Last: Successful Habits of Visionary Companies (Century business) - Paperback

[SR: 71660], Paperback, [EAN: 9780712679619], Random House Business Books, Random House Business Books, Book, [PU: Random House Business Books], Random House Business Books, This analysis of what makes great companies great has been hailed everywhere as an instant classic and one of the best business titles since In Search of Excellence. The authors, James C. Collins and Jerry I. Porras, spent six years in research and they freely admit that their own preconceptions about business success were devastated by their actual findings--along with the preconceptions of virtually everyone else. Built to Last identifies 18 "visionary" companies and sets out to determine what's special about them. To get on the list, a company had to be world famous, have a stellar brand image and be at least 50 years old. We're talking about companies that even a layperson knows to be, well, different: the Disneys, the Wal-Marts, the Mercks. Whatever the key to the success of these companies, the key to the success of this book is that the authors don't waste time comparing them to business failures. Instead, they use a control group of "successful-but-second-rank" companies to highlight what's special about their 18 "visionary" picks. Thus Disney is compared to Columbia Pictures, Ford to GM, Hewlett Packard to Texas Instruments, and so on. The core myth, according to the authors, is that visionary companies must start with a great product and be pushed into the future by charismatic leaders. There are examples of that pattern, they admit: Johnson & Johnson, for one. But there are also just too many counterexamples--in fact, the majority of the "visionary" companies, including giants like 3M, Sony and TI, don't fit the model. They were characterised by total lack of an initial business plan or key idea and by remarkably self-effacing leaders. Collins and Porras are much more impressed with something else they shared: an almost cult-like devotion to a "core ideology" or identity and active indoctrination of employees into "ideological commitment" to the company. The comparison with the business "B"-team does tend to raise a significant methodological problem: which companies are to be counted as "visionary" in the first place? There's an air of circularity here, as if you achieve "visionary" status by ... achieving visionary status. So many roads lead to Rome that the book is less practical than it might appear. But that's exactly the point of an eloquent chapter on 3M. This wildly successful company had no master plan, little structure and no prima donnas. Instead it had an atmosphere in which bright people were both keen to see the company succeed and unafraid to "try a lot of stuff and keep what works." --Richard Farr, Amazon.com , 268153, Economics, 268156, Econometrics, 268159, Economic Conditions, 268160, Economic Policy & Development, 506824, Economic Systems, 268163, History, 268164, International Economics, 268170, Labour, 268173, Macroeconomics, 268176, Microeconomics, 268177, Political Economy, 268178, Theory & Philosophy, 68, Business, Finance & Law, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 268290, Management, 659904, Balanced Scorecard, 268302, Budgeting & Finance, 659902, Business Process Reengineering, 659908, Call Centre Management, 659906, Change Management, 659910, Distribution, 659912, Human Resources, 268305, Information Management, 659926, Knowledge Management, 268098, Management Accounting, 268295, Management Science, 659930, Management Skills, 268306, Office Management, 268296, Operational Research, 268297, Organisational Theory & Behaviour, 268308, Production & Quality Control, 268298, Project Management, 268309, Purchasing & Supply, 268299, Quality Assurance & Total Quality Management, 268321, Sales & Marketing Management, 659964, Six Sigma, 268150, Strategy, 68, Business, Finance & Law, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 276419, Industrial Archaeology, 276416, Archaeology, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books

Built To Last: Successful Habits of Visionary Companies. Author: James Collins and Jerry Porras. 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. biography and history,business,business and investing,company profiles,economics,environmental economics,leadership,management,management and leadership Business & Investing, Random House Business Books
