__________________ From the author of the multi million copy bestseller Good to Great No matter what your walk of life, no matter how big or small your enterprise, no matter whether it s for profit or nonprofit, no matter whether you re CEO or a unit leader, the question stands, How does your flywheel turnJIM COLLINS__________________The key to business success is not a single innovation or one plan It is the act of turning the flywheel, slowly gaining momentum and eventually reaching a breakthrough Building upon the flywheel concept introduced in his groundbreaking classic Good to Great, Jim Collins teaches readers how to create their own flywheel, how to accelerate the flywheel s momentum, and how to stay on the flywheel in shifting markets and during times of turbulence.Combining research from his Good to Great labs and case studies from organisations like , Vanguard, and the Cleveland Clinic which have turned their flywheels with outstanding results, Collins demonstrates that successful organisations can disrupt the world around them and reach unprecedented success by employing the flywheel concept.

    I sometimes think that even the best business books could be expressed as a short article, but have been stretched to justify book length That s certainly true of Turning the Flywheel, except it s only stretched to 40 pages And yet, it s still priced as if it s a regular book.I love lots of Jim Collins other works, but I m not sure why this needed to be packaged like this It s a big, important idea, but pretty simple to explain and might have lent itself better to a free PDF format that Collins fans could download or indeed, incorporated into a revised and updated version of Good to Great.Sorry, but this is a disappointing work and I d recommend buying Good to Great or How The Mighty Fall, as better alternative examples of this important writer.

    A concise picture of the flywheel concept and the surrounding concepts discipline, hedgehog, etc.However, it does not really elaborate much than the book i had hoped for about steps for discovering the elements of the flywheel and what how to decide what not is included , but Jim still leave it closer to a dark art than a science.

    1 its a re hash of Good to Great , buy that instead.2 its 28 pages not including appendix but price does not reflect the size3 book could be summed up in a 3 5page PDF supplement as an ADD ON on to Good to Great
