5.0 von 5 Sternen Spiritual Pursuit
While making money in the short run seems to be the going craze for most of the young people around, "Built to Last" gives a welcome relief by bringing to the fore what GREAT men (and women) have done to their companies (and society)by nurturing ideals of achieving time-defying success that rewrites the rule of success.
As the CEO of a growing education...

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Keys to Success Are Different Than You Think, 29. März 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Built to Last: Successful Habits of Visionary Companies (Taschenbuch)
This is one of the most important business books written in the last decade. The characteristics defined to select the most successful companies are excellent measures of quantity and quality. The key idea, that success does not depend on having an early vision and charismatic leaders but on identity, culture and commitment to the company steer us into different paths for future success. It places the focus, not only on the executive team to set the tone, but on the hiring process and the freedom people are given to create. Executives who want their companies to stand the test of time cannot hire people who are "stalled" or foster a "stalled" culture. I am acutely aware of this since I just finished reading The 2,000 Percent Solution by Mitchell, Coles and Metz, which describes these stalls. The Bureaucracy Stall, for example describes a company that held a meeting to discuss the fact that they hold too many meetings! The Unattractiveness Stall describes a company that had huge excess waste and no one worked on the problem because the waste had a bad odor! Many companies today are not learning how to take advantage of the Internet, because they don't think it will effect their business much!. This is The Disbelief Stall Breaking down these stalls and developing a culture and identity to solve problems and make progress will result in success at many times what the historical trend has been. These companies do not make continuous but slow improvements. These companies will know how to jump to a new level. They will define how business is done, who will lead and how much progress can be achieved. Read Built To Last to understand the lessons of the past and the direction for the future. Read The 2,000 Percent Solution to learn how to incorporate these directions with a practical process to recreate or approach the ideal way to do what you do, freeing up time and resources to do so much more.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A good warning for those too worried with change, 15. Oktober 1998
Von 
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Built to Last: Successful Habits of Visionary Companies (Taschenbuch)
Even though, Built to Last, lacks of a definitive structure, as those of The Seven Habit of Highly effective People or even the Fifth Discpline, as one of the reviewer has pointed out, it is a real and necessary warning in this stage of mankind in which we all have the tendency to be driven by the fashion of change instead of remembering that it is EVOLUTION what really matters. By destroying twelve myths, Collins and Porras give us a good reference of permanence in this age, and how those companies that last have shown a great respect for their leaders as a basic nucleus; the way they are open to change externally, but at the same time, internally they have preserved the core by not changing what must not change: the nucleus. At this very moment, the flatten tendency fashion in organization, perhaps because of a partial interpretation of the Fifth Discipline have taken many organization to destroy their nucleus. Even though the metaphor of the Clock Builder is a good one, it is not fair with reality, as time tellers as Westinghouse or Columbia Pictures, also made great contributions in their fields, and that was their mission... As they tried to demostrate with the "and/or preposition", we need both: Clock builders and Time tellers . Again the new emerging basic unit system concept in which, the opposites can be complementary by immersing them in a comprehensive whole, must be used by those interested in Management and leadership if they want to have a good frame of reference.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Inspirational Analysis of some of the World's Best Companies, 14. Mai 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Built to Last: Successful Habits of Visionary Companies (Taschenbuch)
The subtitle of this book sums it up best: "successful habits of visionary companies". The authors of Built to Last researched a handful of exceptional "well-built" and performing companies and compared them to the "next-best-in-class" companies to determine what characteristics made the best companies better than all the rest. Their research led them to find many similarities among the "world class" companies which, of course, is what the main content of the book is about. This book had a large impact on me for a couple reasons. First, I've used many of the words and phrases that I learned here and transferred them to my working environment. (e.g. "mission", "vision", "core ideology", "core values", etc.) Second, I've been able to use many of the model companies in this book to teach others in my company how business should be managed. (e.g. Merck, Hewlett Packard, Motorola, Wal-Mart, Johnson & Johnson, etc.) There are so many good ideas in this book that I made a note to myself to "read it once every year just for some new ideas". I've taught business peers more from this book than any other I have read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The review describes the book's primary themes., 3. Juli 1997
Von Ein Kunde
I hate many management books.

I have hated them for years. Many are too facile, too evangelistic, too unfulfilling, and too easy.

I compare some writers of management books to revival preachers. "If you'll only accept--if you'll only walk the aisle, then everything will work out and you will receive showers of blessings. You'll have everything you ever wanted. It's so easy. Heaven is just around the corner if you only accept."

Porras and Collins have converted me. I have walked the aisle and I believe.

I did not even remember where I read the review that initiated my search for the book. I checked the book out from the library--riskless from a cynic's point of view.

But, oh, what a great book. What superlatives can I use to describe it? Let's just say if I, like Mikey, like it, it's good.

It's good because it does not propound easy answers. It propounds fundamentals such as enunciating your core values and living them. It's about innovation. It's about taking care of your customers first. It's about building your organization as a clockmaker would a watch. It's about risks, those big harry audacious goals--those dreams-- that some companies turn into reality. Most of all it's about real companies, real people and real hard work. Take it from me, it's one of the best business books of the decade

4.0 von 5 Sternen Gute Gedankenanstöße, 6. Oktober 2009
Von 
Das Buch hat von mir 4 Sterne bekommen, da es wirklich gut und flüssig zu lesen ist und einen Vergleich über Unternehmen aus verschiedenen Ländern gibt. Ein Stern Abzug gibt es dafür, das öfters sehr lange Beschreibungen und Geschichten gebracht werden, die mir persönlich nicht so gut gefallen haben.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A timeless masterpiece, 6. Februar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Built to Last: Successful Habits of Visionary Companies (Taschenbuch)
This is a book which will be a guiding beacon today and even hundered years from now. The principles which the authors have enumerated are time tested ones. I wish there were more books like this.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A truly visionary book, 17. April 1998
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Built to Last: Successful Habits of Visionary Companies (Taschenbuch)
I am the owner of a medium size consultancy - still in its early years. I consult to many large corporations often on issues of long term structure and community significance. I found Built to Last an exceptional book to assist with both my consulting work, and also with the development of my own company. The depth of research and research techniques themselves are commendable. Credibility is the result. The idea that companies contributing in great measure to civilisation underlies much of this book. Why they contribute so much, and how they do it are fascinating in themselves. But it is the very concept of "built to last" that I found of greatest interest. The idea that we can build great companies, as well as great nations, and great organisations, and great families is quite inspiring. I thank the authors for their contribution to our understanding of business and increasing the sum total of wisdom in the world.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Outstanding view of how to create the most lasting success, 24. Januar 1999

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Built to Last: Successful Habits of Visionary Companies (Taschenbuch)
The concept behind this book is brilliant: What makes companies that outperform their peers for decades enjoy that success. The most important lesson of this book is to create lasting ways of managing your business successfully, that will outlive the skills and perspective of any one person, no matter how talented. The book is fun to read. I liked the way the ideas were described: Big, hairy, audacious goals is a fun concept just from the title. One of the most useful ideas is that we need to hold conflicting ideas in our minds, such as "do more" and "spend less". English often suggests that conflicts exist in what can be done that do not really exist in practice. This book is outstanding for "telling it like it is". Of particular interest to investors will be the stock-price charts showing how valuable these lessons are for public companies and their shareholders.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Worth every minute you invest in reading it!, 29. Oktober 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Built to Last: Successful Habits of Visionary Companies (Taschenbuch)
Many times the latest management fad is what gets the press. That is a symptom of our society, wishing immediate grativication for everything. However, this book points clearly to those companies who have mastered the process it takes to becoming an "enduring, great company." And surprisely enough the answers are not all similar across the companies studied.

We should not be amazed at the success of these companies, it is not like we haven't known the principles on which they stand. Mr. Collins and Mr. Porras have researched a very compelling study to help us all understand how we do have control and can impact the companies for which we are employed. Take the information to heart, get out of reading the "fad" books and put the facts you learn from "Built to Last" to work for you right now!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A true eye-opener, packed with useful insights and details, 27. Oktober 1998
Von Ein Kunde
This book does a splendid job of detailing how the world's most successful, long-established companies have flourished. The use of comparison companies was especially informative because many of the intangible aspects of good management have no absolute scale against which to measure. The authors have done a masterful job of organizing a tremendous amount of information into a cohesive and readable arrangement - and it makes sense! When the visionary companies take an action that contradicts the typical characteristics discovered and explained by the authors, they come right out and say, "It doesn't make sense to us." Also well done is their end-of-chapter guidelines for those readers who might put the book to use. Their writing is fresh, brave, and again, very useful! An exciting book to read!
