"Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap and Others Don't" by Jim Collins


“Can a good company become a great company and if so, how?” This is the question that Jim Collins, a business management expert with experience working at McKinsey and Hewlett-Packard, tackles in “Good to Great.” The book is an in-depth study of 28 companies, including Coca-Cola, Intel, and Merck, offering analysis into what makes a great business — something that all lawyers, who deal with corporations across various industries, should know.

Tracy Bowden, general counsel at insurtech startup Hippo, recommends this book for its message on “the importance of reflecting on ‘how it is always done’ to reengineer and improve processes,” especially in an industry like law, which is largely seen as old-school and conservative.
