Books: Good to Great and the Social Sectors

Good to Great and the Social Sectors
by Jim Collins (2005)

This monograph explores how the author changed his mind and decided that social sector organizations – non-profits, public agencies, or churches – should NOT be run more like businesses. Written as a companion to his book,
Good to Great, the monograph provides an elegant review of key concepts in the book, and how the author thinks they should be applied differently to social sector organizations. (Hint: the “hedgehog” questions need to be different.) If you are involved in the leadership of any non-profit, either board or staff, I highly recommend this monograph...after reading the book, of course.
