My Review of Built to Last by Jim Collins




It was highly recommended to me by one of my superior. The book is about organizational development. Emphasized on an idea of spending more on technical & creative guys instead of the managerial one. The solutions and ideas discussed in the book along with the practical implementations by the great organization are very useful in understanding the puzzles of greatness.
Many ideas discussed in the book can be directly applied in your individual projects or departments. The discuss about the alignment of short term objectives with the long term goals is now considered as universal truth. The experimentation culture in an organization always paid off. The book has all the required techniques and strategies required to form companies vision to managing people and resources.
A must read for middle & senior tier level people. I rate the book 9/10.
