Good Case Studies,
This review is from: Grow: How Ideals Power Growth and Profit at the World's Greatest Companies (Hardcover)
For readers of "Built to Last, " "Grow" offers nothing new. This book also argues that business success requires a leader's ability to articulate a vision, build the company and brand around that vision. What this book does offer are a lot of useful case studies as well as anecdotes that illuminate the main messages.
The main fault with this book is like any business book it tries to distill the formula for business success into a general formula that can be applied everywhere. A great business is great because of great people, and great people are rare -- and that's just an unfortunate fact of life.
