Reviews - What do customers think about Good to Great and the Social Sectors: A Monograph to Accompany Good to Great?

This is it!  Mar 27, 2007
A must read for those of us in the social sectors. A "should" read for those in business. This 10 year research project provides the kind of data needed to move forward. Read this as a final chapter to the Good to Great Book. Also check out the Jim Collins web site.
Excellent advice for any nonprofit leader or staff member  Mar 1, 2007
Everybody involved in the nonprofit world should read this book. I read it without having read Good to Great and still got a lot of practical, useful ideas out of it. It's a quick read, which is good because we are busy people!
A helpful addition to "Good to Great"  Feb 23, 2007
Having read (and enthusiastically enjoyed) Jim Collins' "Good to Great" several months ago and working on a church staff, I was pleased to discover that he wrote this monograph to draw together the conclusions of that wonderful business book and the non-business world. I found this addition to be most helpful.

As with all of Collins' writing, this monograph is extremely accessible. He writes at a very intellectual level without getting overly technical. He presents the basic premise that not everything in "Good to Great" is broadly applicable outside the business world.

For instance, the difference between the executive authority that business leaders have is starkly contrasted with the legislative authority that leaders have in the social sector. Because I work almost exclusively with volunteers within the church, this distinction is important and obvious to me.

He also mentions that issues related to resources are more complicated than the relatively simplistic economic factors that exist in business. Instead, social organizations need to consider all of the available resources, which includes people and time in addition to money.

Despite these and other distinctions that Collins draws between the business world and the social sector, it is interesting to note that the overall principles of "Good to Great" remain valid. For instance, the concept of Level 5 leadership remains prescriptive for high-performing leaders outside of business.

His concluding thoughts are very insightful and instructive. In short, he suggests that the transition from good to great happens in business and outside of business. For my context, though the church may bring to bear particular difficulties and constraints, so does each and every institution. The principles of greatness are common across all organizations, even if they might look slightly different. In his words, "greatness is not a function of circumstance. Greatness, it turns out, is largely a matter of conscious choice, and discipline." There is valuable wisdom in those words for those of us who work outside the business community. My one and only complaint about this resource is its price for a mere 30 pages. Nonetheless, just as I recommended the book, I would encourage anyone interested in being part of a great institution, regardless of the setting, to read this monograph.
Great  Jan 30, 2007
If you work in a social sector BUY both of his books on good to great...get the foundation by buying the original and then read this to found out how to apply good to great to your non-profit...

Helpful information  Jan 9, 2007
This monograph outlines practical information and ideas for my non profit work. It's clear that Collins and his team have done a tremendous amount of research and assimilated their findings in very useful ways. I've shared it with other co-workers and have found it very worthwhile.
