Mr. Jim Collins will be speaking to us at 11:00 AM Thursday morning at the Annual Conference.

“Jim Collins is the eminent student and teacher of enduring great organizations — how they grow, how they attain superior performance, and how they achieve greatness. Investing nearly a quarter of a century of research into the topic, Collins has written or coauthored six books, selling more than 10 million copies worldwide. Titles include the classic Built to Last, a fixture on the Business Week best seller list for more than six years; the international best seller Good to Great, translated into 35 languages; and How the Mighty Fall, a New York Times best seller that examines how great companies can self-destruct. In 2005, Collins published the monograph, Good to Great and the Social Sectors. Driven by relentless curiosity, Collins commenced his research and teaching career on the faculty of the Stanford Graduate School of Business, where he received the 1992 Distinguished Teaching Award. In 1995, he founded a management laboratory to conduct research and consult with executives from the corporate and social sectors. Collins holds degrees in business administration and mathematical sciences from Stanford University. He has worked with senior executives and CEOs at more than 100 corporations and with social sector organizations across the spectrum, from education and the arts to religious organizations, local and federal government, health care organizations, and cause-driven nonprofits.” [From NAIS Featured Speaker’s Page]
