Publisher's Summary

From Jim Collins, the most influential business thinker of our era, comes an ambitious upgrade of his classic, Beyond Entrepreneurship, that includes all-new findings and world-changing insights. 

What's the roadmap to create a company that not only survives its infancy but thrives, changing the world for decades to come? Nine years before the publication of his epochal best seller Good to Great, Jim Collins and his mentor, Bill Lazier, answered this question in their best-selling book, Beyond Entrepreneurship

Beyond Entrepreneurship left a definitive mark on the business community, influencing the young pioneers who were, at that time, creating the technology revolution that was birthing in Silicon Valley. Decades later, successive generations of entrepreneurs still turn to the strategies outlined in Beyond Entrepreneurship to answer the most pressing business questions. 

BE 2.0 is a new and improved version of the book that Jim Collins and Bill Lazier wrote years ago. In BE 2.0, Jim Collins honors his mentor, Bill Lazier, who passed away in 2005, and reexamines the original text of Beyond Entrepreneurship with his 2020 perspective. The book includes the original text of Beyond Entrepreneurship, as well as four new chapters and 15 new essays. BE 2.0 pulls together the key concepts across Collins' 30 years of research into one integrated framework called The Map. 

The result is a singular listening experience, which presents a unified vision of company creation that will fascinate not only Jim's millions of dedicated listeners worldwide, but also introduce a new generation to his remarkable work.

Very very very good

I’ve read good to great and great by choice. For some reason, this book was so much clearer understand the topics discussed, and hearing Jim add in his commentary from 2020 is amazing.

I would highly recommend this book for anyone running a mid sized company (100 employees or so, or $10M+ in revenues)

Mostly filler

His previous books about great companies is much better. This one does what so many other do taking a basic idea and repeat it 3-5 different ways to take up pages or time. Not worth. This could be summarized in 1/5 the time/volume as this just as effectively for someone paying attention. Hard Pass.

Every leader and entrepreneur should read this!

Practical enough to take specific action, yet engaging enough to listen through all of the credits, this book is a must read for leaders.
