book: Good to Great by Jim Collins

this is a classic, popular, an controversial series of books, for a reason

the ideas are well researched and very convincing, but 
after a while, many of representative stories stopped to be valid at all.

That begs a question: while this is an interesting research and stories, 
are they useful? Meaning, we have limited time need not only "convincing" stories", "useful" is needed!

Part of problem is this religious-like conviction of the author
that does not allow space that this may be noise in the dataset.

Good to Great - Wikipedia

Jim Collins - Concepts - The Hedgehog Concept

The Hedgehog Concept is developed in the book Good to Great. 

A simple, crystalline concept that flows from deep understanding about the intersection of three circles:

  1. what you are deeply passionate about,
  2. what you can be the best in the world at, and
  3. what best drives your economic or resource engine.
Transformations from good to great come about by a series of good decisions made consistently with a Hedgehog Concept, supremely well executed, accumulating one upon another, over a long period of time.
