Jim Collins is a student and teacher of direction and what makes businesses tick.
Having spent a quarter century of research into the topic, he has written or co-authored six novels which have sold in total more than ten million copies globally. They comprise: GOOD TO GREAT, the #1 bestseller, which assesses some businesses and leaders make the jump to superior results, together with its companion work GOOD TO GREAT AND THE SOCIAL SECTORS; the lasting classic BUILT TO LAST, that explores how some leaders assemble companies which stay nostalgic for generations; HOW THE MIGHTY FALL, which delves into how once-great businesses can self-destruct; and most recently, GREAT BY CHOICE, which is about flourishing in turmoil – why many do, and others do not – along with the leadership behaviours needed in a world beset by turbulence, disruption, uncertainty, and striking change.
Driven by a relentless curiosity, Jim began his research and teaching career on the faculty at Stanford Graduate School of Business, where he also received the Distinguished Teaching Award in 1992. In 1995, he founded a management laboratory in Boulder, Colorado, where he conducts research and participates in Socratic conversation with CEOs and senior leadership teams. Along with his work in the company sector, Jim has passion for learning and instruction in the social sectors, including education, health, government, faith-based organizations, social ventures, along with cause-driven non-profits. In 2012 and 2013, he had the honour to serve a two-year consultation since the Class of 1951 Chair for the Study of Leadership at the United States Military Academy in West Point.
Jim holds a bachelor's degree in mathematical sciences and an MBA from Stanford University, and honorary doctoral degrees by the University of Colorado and the Peter F. Drucker Graduate School of Management at Claremont Graduate University.
