Small Giants: Companies that Choose to be Great Instead of Big

Bo Burlingham

“Consider this book a field report from the front lines of an emerging force in American business. Quietly and gradually – under the radar, as it were – a new class of companies has been forming…Size and growth rate aside, the companies in this book do have certain characteristics in common. To begin with, they are all utterly determined to be the best at what they do…they have all had the opportunity to raise a lot of capital, grow very fast, do mergers and acquisitions, expand geographically, and generally follow the well-worn route of other successful companies. Yet they have chosen to not focus on revenue growth or geographical expansion, pursuing instead other goals that they consider more important than getting as big as possible…Their interested in being great at what they do, creating a great place to work, providing great service to customers, having great relationships with their suppliers, making great contributions to the communities they live and work in, and finding great ways to lead their lives.”
