As a nonprofit professional who had recently read "Good to Great" I was excited to read this follow up monograph. I found the insights to be invaluable but wish it had been longer as I would love to learn more about how to apply the G2G principles in the nonprofit sector. ( )

This book is really a couple of chapters that should be read along with the original book. For someone like me who is running a not-for-profit, it gives a lot to think about. How do we measure not-for-profits differently than for-profit organizations. Why do we treat not-for-profits as if they shouldn't strive to make as much money as possible? The more money I make, the more change I can bring about in the community. This is a book that will simmer in the back of my brain and help me do a better job of managing our mission. ( )

A compliment to Good to Great for non-profits and social organizations. This is not a replacement but rather a supliment for Good to Great. Read that first to understand the concepts and then read how Collins applies them to social sectors. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0977326403, Paperback)

Jim Collins Answers the Social Sector with a Monograph to Accompany Good to Great. 30-50% of those who bought Good to Great work in the Social Sector.

This monograph is a response to questions raised by readers in the social sector. It is not a new book. Jim Collins wants to avoid any confusion about the monograph being a book by limiting its distribution to online retailers. Based on interviews and workshops with over 100 social sector leaders. The difference between successful organizations is not between the business and the social sector, the difference is between good organizations and great ones.
