    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 listeners 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.

    Decisions equal success - nothing happens until one is made. Businesses make millions of decisions every day. But once in a great while a leader makes a truly game-changing decision that shifts not only the strategy of a single company but how everyone does business. These big decisions are counterintuitive - they go against the conventional wisdom. In hindsight, taking a different direction may seem easy, but these bet-the-company moves involve drama, doubt, and high tension.

Jim describes it as the most fascinating analysis that he's ever been associated with in nearly 25 years of research. Some of those fascinating insights include the role of luck and innovation, their "triad of behaviors", as well as firing your "bullets" and then firing your "cannonballs".

    Vom Autor des Bestsellers „Der Weg zu den Besten“. Wir können die Zukunft nicht vorhersehen. Aber wir können sie erschaffen. Ungewissheit, Chaos - na und? Trotz der anhaltenden wirtschaftlichen Unsicherheit florieren einige Unternehmen, während andere scheitern. Gleichermaßen betroffen von turbulenten Ereignissen und von massiven, schnelllebigen Wirkungskräften, die wir weder Voraussagen noch beeinflussen können - was unterscheidet diejenigen, die außerordentlich erfolgreich abschneiden, von denen, die unterdurchschnittlich oder noch schlechter abschneiden?
