    One thought on “Good to Great and the Social Sectors: A Monograph to Accompany Good to Great”

    1. A monograph to accompany Collins Good To Great which I haven t read The underlying principle of this missing chapter is that we don t need to impose the language of business on the social sector, but develop a language of greatness He does this by focusing on five issues that he used in the book and tweaking them for a different mission and context.The first is Defining Great How do we calibrate success without business metrics Instead of money being an output, as it is in the business world, a [...]

    3. This was a fabulous little monograph that explains the Good to Great principles applied in the social sectors Our work is not fundamentally about business it is about what separates great from good We need to define great and measure it and collect evidence in some way, have good leadership and get things done in a diffuse power structure, get the right people on the bus, rethink the economic engine, and build momentum for the brand A part of this is considering 1 What are you deeply passionate [...]

    4. To quote a brilliant former colleague, Jim Collins makes me swoon I ve read and reread this booklet 3 different times, and I pick up something new every time Its refreshing to look at a different paradigm from someone who gets that the work of non profits is not defined by the financial statement, but by the impact of the work This is not earth shattering or new by any means, but its a damn good reminder of why we exist and how to start to think so we can go from being mediocre non profits to gr [...]

    5. Appreciate the author taking an extra dive into how the business principles would apply to government and nonprofits, and wish business authors did the same.

    6. I am working in both business sector and social sector, and I can confidently say that this book is on point It s short, well organized, and the concept is inspiring It gives me new thoughts and ideas and perspectives on my preconceptions of business vs social It added so much joy to my gloomy monday and inspired me to strive for greatness Highly recommend this gem.

    7. A very short book like a really long blog post aimed at people who loved Good to Great but are in the social sector and thus do not have profits by which to measure success Again, he s got a few amazing real life stories to illustrate the merits of his program for going from good to great, such as with the Cleveland symphony He admits the topic deserves a full book but says it ll take 10 years to do and so this is a stopgap meant to answer the most common questions he s received from those in n [...]

    8. joemcfadden 2015 03 28 boHow do social sector organizations calibrate success without business metrics, get things done within a diffuse power structure, get the right people on the bus within social sector constraints, rethink the economic engine without a profit motive, and build momentum by building the brand 3 If we only have great companies, we will merely have a prosperous society, not a great one Economic growth and power are the means, not the definition, of a great nation Author s Note [...]

    9. Quotes from Good to Great and the Social Sectors James C Collins In the social sectors, money is only an input, and not a measure of greatness A great organization is one that delivers superior performance and makes a distinctive impact over a long period of time What if your outputs are inherently not measurable The basic idea is still the same separate inputs from outputs, and hold yourself accountable for progress in outputs, even if those outputs defy measurement But we cannot measure perfor [...]

    10. I touch on my thoughts on this monograph in my review of Good to Great, but basically I think it does an exceptional job of taking the already strong concepts in its parent book and applying them to the social sector.From the viewpoint of 2017, I disagree with the inclusion of Bratten s NYPD as an example of greatness given disparities in policing behaviors and outcomes, but given the date this book was written and the change in social discourse between now and then, I find it understandable.

    11. It s an interesting idea to show how the corporate world and the social world are different, and what can be done to make the social sector successful.I agree about the need for discipline, and some other points mentioned What I couldn t help but feel was that there was something unnecessary I m not able to specify I m sharing the book with friends who work in the social sector, and will take their views too.

    12. Quick but effectiveI read this book as an assignment in a Leadership class and I m so glad I did The title did not capture my attention, but the book was fascinating I live the concept of Good to Great Great companies have far in common with Great social organizations than they do mediocre companies I truly believe that no matter the organization, developing the qualities of greatness is always possible It s all in the attitude

    13. Excellent book that applies principles from the author s book, Good to Great, to the public sector i.e government and non profit service sectors I found his understanding of the difference between the public and business sectors to be insightful.This book can be read alone, or after his book, Good to Great.

    14. I a big fan of Collin s work He is logical, clear, and creates memorable principles that can easy be incorporated into nearly every work situation I think he was a bit overly optimistic about getting the right people on the bus, but overall this was a worthwhile read.

    15. read during the London trip, this seems to be an extension of Good to Great Why Some Companies Make the Leap and Others Don t , which I haven t read yet Well structured when introducing the methods.

    16. Good book with good knowledge, however can be quite long winded I d prefer a summary of the book in two to three chapters with chapters of examples afterwards This would allow you to skip the examples and cut right to the chase.

    17. I read Good to Great awhile ago, but I didn t know he had a little booklet applying these principles to the nonprofit sector Invaluable stuff.

    18. As a public sector employee, I was eager to read how Collins would modify his seminal text to address the challenges of running what I will broadly characterize as social sector organizations Collins acknowledges from the onset that he could not utilize the same rigorous methodology that yielded the businesses featured in Good to Great Although it contains kernels of useful advice, several aspects of what he discusses in this monograph seems inadequate to support his framework from greatness in [...]

    19. Sometimes I like to argue with authors, often scribbling yeah, but comments across the margins of their books Other authors make such tight, well researched cases for the points they make, they are hard to argue with Jim Collins is in this last category A business professor, Collins books are reports on in depth university studies about his subjects Built to Last and Good to Great have become essential business reading I did a two page summary of Good to Great a while back You can find that at w [...]

    20. Jim Collins does great work Good To Great is an incredible book that transcends business This little add on was a must read in addition to the original, as it takes the principles one step further, illuminating the nature of the principles in great organizations that don t have money as it s core drive.

    21. Though I have not read Good to Great, I knew this monograph would have particular relevance to working in higher ed It certainly did, and I learned about the odd comparison of businesses versus social sector institutions I loved how it started out saying people compare these institutions to businesses unfairly because they compare them to good companies, not generally great companies So trying to imitate simply good companies is not a good strategy I think I will eventually have to read Good to [...]

    22. This book explains very briefly how to go from being that good manager to that great manager Tim Collins had listed 5 steps to go from good to great Each step lists a real life scenario that explains in detail how someone who works in the social sector has implemented said step to make the step from good to great It was very interesting to read just how different and yet how similar business and social sector jobs can be Even though social sectors do not use money as an output like businesses, t [...]

    23. Good to Great and the Social Sectors A Monograph to Accompany Good to Great is Jim Collin s extensive response to the FAQs in Good to Great which addresses the differences between business and those who work in the social sector concerned about instilling social and cultural change than pocketing a profit This book is basically a stand alone entity which revisits many of the core conclusions of Good to Great In other words, one could read this without having read Good to Great and be just fine [...]

    24. Recently, my Manager and I had the opportunity to attend an event that Craig Kielburger, co founder of Free the Children and Me to We attended After the presentation my Manager and I were thoroughly engaged and wanted to brainstorm about ideas to engage the rest of the staff in order to encourage participation in a day of service My Manager than pulled out this book that she has received during her volunteer days on a local board She encouraged me to read it as she knew I had previous experience [...]

    25. In the spirit of full disclosure, I have not read this author s original book Good to Great but I still felt that this monograph had some good takeaways for those of us in the social sectors I particularly enjoyed the discussion of getting the right people on the bus, as I have been thinking about this ever since a previous job at a non for profit that could not retain its workforce to save its life Unlike most of the other social sector organizations discussed in this work police department, Gi [...]

    26. A short addendum to Collins bigger book, Good to Great Why Some Companies Make the Leap and Others Don t This 36 page monograph takes much from the larger book and applies those principles to the not for profit sector In doing so the author makes some important observations, especially how business and the non profit environments are distinctly different We need to reject the na ve imposition of the language of business on the social sectors, and instead jointly embrace a language of greatness 2 [...]

    27. I love this book, and I was not expecting to Usually, when I read books about how to obtain success I roll my eyes the whole time I mean really, really, if you learned that other people like to talk about themselves from a business help you book then not only must your business need help but I would suggest picking up a self help book too Yet, I was completely impressed with Good to Great and the Social Sectors because the author Jim Collins emphasized the importance of system outline goal for s [...]

    28. Be prepared to shake up your thinking Defining your hedgehogs, priming the flywheel, and getting the right people on the bus are only part of the success equation for great companies and great social organizations.In this monograph Collins spells out how to go for greatness by focusing on outcomes not inputs and helps clarify the challenge of defining non monetary outcomes What does it mean to empower middle school girls how do you know you ve succeeded at being a world class orchestra The insig [...]

    29. This is the missing chapter of Good to Great perfect for social entrepreneurs you ll read it in less than an hour Jim adapts the notion of the hedgehog concept to being driven by a resource engine opposed to an economic engine Power is decentralized in this sector tools like crowdsourcing and self organization come to mind he talks about how executives frequently fail to transition from typical command structures Jim begins an inquiry around what it means to measure success and highly recommend [...]
