Why do some companies thrive in uncertainty, even chaos, and others do not? Based on nine years of research, Jim Collins (author of Good to Great) and Morten Hansen enumerate the principles for building a truly great enterprise in unpredictable, tumultuous, and fast-moving times.
Bad collaboration is worse than none at all. Starting from this premise, Morten Hansen draws on fifteen years of research to separate good from bad collaboration. The book details how managers can avoid the pitfalls and reap great results from collaboration.
