Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap... and Others Don't
Jim Collins
2001 6-hour 4-audiocassette program
A five-year study of good-to-great companies found:
* Level 5 Leaders --The research team was shocked to discover the type of leadership required to achieve greatness.
* The Hedgehog Concept (Simplicity within the Three Circles) -- To go from good to great requires transcending the curse of competence.
* A Culture of Discipline -- When you combine a culture of discipline with an ethic of entrepreneurship, you get the magical alchemy of great results.
* Technology Accelerators -- Good-to-great companies think differently about the role of technology.
* The Flywheel and the Doom Loop -- Those who launch radical change programs and wrenching restructurings will almost certainly fail to make the leap.

First, Break All the Rules
1999
Audiocassette Tape

Explains how best managers select an employee for talent rather than for skills or experience; how they set expectations for him or her--they define the right outcomes rather than the right steps; how they motivate people--they build on each person's unique strengths rather than trying to fix his weaknesses; and, finally, how great managers develop people--they find the right fit for each person, not the next rung on the ladder. The authors present remarkable findings when it comes to managers, across wide variety of situations.

Audiocassette Tape
6 tapes
Organizational Management
American business, says Tom Peters, has always depended on mass production for mass markets. But that situation can no longer exist. Today and every day we must adapt to constantly changing conditions--frequent innovations in computer and telecommunications technologies, competitors springing up overnight and old ones disappearing as companies merge and demerge, values of currencies and commodities rising or falling 5 percent per week and 50 percent per year. Indeed, we must learn to love change and view chaos and uncertainty as market opportunities.
