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...

Zentrale Hinweise sind gut, aber insgesamt wenig Gehalt das ganze. Titel klingt vielversprechender als es dann tatsächlich ist. VG Ein Leser

5.0 von 5 Sternen Sutsainable Excellence, 11. Januar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Built to Last: Successful Habits of Visionary Companies (Taschenbuch)
For me, one of the most interesting components within Build to Last is the authors' discussion of what they call the Big Hairy Audacious Goal (BHAG) "which engages people -- it reaches out and grabs them in the gut. It is tangible, energizing, highly focused. People 'get it' right away. It takes little or no explanation." As Collins and Porras discovered, "The BHAGs looked more audacious to outsiders than to insiders. The visionary companies didn't see their audacity as taunting the gods. It simply never occurred to them that they couldn't do what they set out to do." This same attitude is found the Great Groups which Warren Bennis and Patricia Ward Biederman analyze in Organizing Genius. Members of Great Groups have absolute confidence in what they and their associates can accomplish: "Of course we can create full-length animation films such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs....Of course we can design a user-friendly personal computer....Of course we design an aircraft which is essentially invisible to radar...." Failing to achieve a BHAG was unthinkable to them.
Build to Last is a superb achievement. There is perhaps no better source of information to enlighten and guide efforts to achieve evolutionary progress. Its value is not derived from what Collins and Porras know; rather, from what their rigorous examination of visionary companies reveals. It remains for each reader to determine for herself or himself which revelations are most relevant...and then act upon them with discipline, tenacity, and -- yes -- patience. A single retail store in Kemmerer (WY) or Bentonville (AR) did not become a multi-billion dollar global corporation overnight. (Collins and Porras do not include JCPenney and Walt-Mart among the companies they discuss.) Every visionary company had to begin somewhere. For those who are determined to build the next generation of visionary companies, Collins and Porras explain how.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Make applying the principles of this book YOUR BHAG, 29. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Built to Last: Successful Habits of Visionary Companies (Taschenbuch)
This was a scholarly work, well founded in research, and rounded out with case studies from visionary companies and their non-visionary counterparts. It contrasts the strategies used by visionary companies to build strength across decades.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Built to Last: Successful Habits of Visionary Companies (Taschenbuch)
If you are trying to build a business that stands for something that you can imagine being around a hundred years from now, you have to read this book. If I could only get you to read one book, this is the one I'd give you.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Proven wrong, 5. Oktober 2013
James Montier tells us in his value investing book that the comparator companies used in their book actually significantly outperformed the visionary companies since the publication. If that doesnt tell everything...

5.0 von 5 Sternen Clock building, not time telling......, 7. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Built to Last: Successful Habits of Visionary Companies (Taschenbuch)
A very good book. Guides you down the right path of running a lasting business. In one sentence, when you think of your business as a space mission, you'll have different perspectives on how to run it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A useful tool for business and life., 5. September 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Built to Last: Successful Habits of Visionary Companies (Taschenbuch)
Collins and Porras did their homework. This was a great book, well organized, and they resisted most of the temptations to write as academics. This book's value will last into the Knowledge Age.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Some good stuff, but mostly hack work, 31. Dezember 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Built to Last: Successful Habits of Visionary Companies (Taschenbuch)
I found the one chapter in the book on Cults and Culture to be compelling, but overall this was an unbelievably boring and repetitive work, with little or no substantive research on the control groups used to compare visionary and non-visionary companies. I think I got their point of clock building, not time telling the first time they used the metaphor. I found myself getting extremely frustrated with the repetitive reference to simple observations through out their study: Preserve the core, stimulate progress, blah, blah, blah...
A MUCH better book on which type of companies will succeed in the new age of the service based economy is The Profit Zone. It takes many of the same companies mentioned in Built to Last and does much better job of describing why some succeed and some fail. The chapter on GE is especially illuminating. The Profit Zone is a methodology based book; Built to Last is more of an excercise in aphorisms with the exception of one remarkable chapter on organizational cultures (chapter six, Cult-Like Cultures). I guess having one original observation is a BHAG for just about any business book.
