When it comes to business, why be good, when you can be great?
Author Jim Collins explores this question in his 2001 book Good to Great. Based on five meticoulous years of research, Collins’ book examines how good companies can become great companies, and outlines the methods and strategies needed to procure long-term sustainable success.
Collins and his team of researchers sifted through the approximately 1,400 companies that have made the Fortune 500 and selected a dozen that met his criteria of transitioning from goodness to greatness, and becoming leaders in their respective industries.
Generation Dayton, the area’s largest networking organization for young professionals, will host a “Books on Business” Meeting on Nov. 10 to discuss “Good to Great.”
Anyone interested in improving the culture of their business or organization, and forging a top-notch team is encouraged to attend this free event. The group will meet up at Pacchia’s at 410 East Fifth Street in the Oregon District from 6 to 8 p.m.
The book should be read prior to the meeting. Pick up a copy from the local library, used book store or Amazon and dare to be great!
