Relocation or even shifting to a new rented or personal accommodation is quite an uphill task as it involves packing every piece on you own & then handing them to the un-trained bunch of people who rather look more like goons, only to find most of your delicate crystals, show pieces broken & your precious cutlery missing once the individual reached in his/her new house.
With industrialization came the new age professional who was mobile and had to move for growth to greener pastures. His job responsibilities at work needed him on time & what he required was someone to take care of his home & his belongings while he could concentrate on his job. There were frequent transfers cross state & countries. The modern professional required someone to handle his expensive possessions with utmost care & safety. The result was professional moving companies who provide relocation services.
There are cheap movers available which help an individual pack & move his/her belongings in the safest possible manner. One can choose as to what kind of movers service does one require-interstate movers or long distance movers, local movers or auto transport. The cost of the relocation is calculated by the moving company based on the type of relocation service taken from them.
Moving companies not just offer timely service but make a person’s relocation simple. They earn a name for the fact that their manpower is trained & completely in line with the demand of the customer who wants his belongings to be handled with utmost care. The relocation company packs everything in a complete organized manner & come equipped with ready to pack cartons, cellophane, bubble paper, thermocol etc. They even label each box number wise & give a copy of things kept inside each box to the customer.
The icing on the cake is that before the customer’s cartons are docked into his or her house, his/her convenience is checked first. What gives these relocation companies an edge is their loyalty & trustworthiness. The safety of the customer’s belongings is their utmost priority. Many people who have experienced relocations say that such relocation companies do a better job than they themselves would have done!!

Built to Last, the defining management study of the nineties, showed how great companies triumph over time and how long-term sustained performance can be engineered into the DNA of an enterprise from the verybeginning.
But what about the company that is not born with great DNA? How can good companies, mediocre companies, even bad companies achieve enduring greatness?
For years, this question preyed on the mind of Jim Collins. Are there companies that defy gravity and convert long-term mediocrity or worse into long-term superiority? And if so, what are the universal distinguishing characteristics that cause a company to go from good to great?
Using tough benchmarks, Collins and his research team identified a set of elite companies that made the leap to great results and sustained those results for at least fifteen years. How great? After the leap, the good-to-great companies generated cumulative stock returns that beat the general stock market by an average of seven times in fifteen years, better than twice the results delivered by a composite index of the world's greatest companies, including Coca-Cola, Intel, General Electric, and Merck.
The research team contrasted the good-to-great companies with a carefully selected set of comparison companies that failed to make the leap from good to great. What was different? Why did one set of companies become truly great performers while the other set remained only good?
Over five years, the team analyzed the histories of all twenty-eight companies in the study. After sifting through mountains of data and thousands of pages of interviews, Collins and his crew discovered the key determinants of greatness -- why some companies make the leap and others don't.
The findings of the Good to Great study will surprise many readers and shed light on virtually every area of management strategy and practice. The findings include:
- Level 5 Leaders: The research team was shocked to discover the type of leadership required to achieve greatness.
- The Hedgehog Concept: (Simplicity within the Three Circles): To go from good to great requires transcending the curse of competence.
- A Culture of Discipline: When you combine a culture of discipline with an ethic of entrepreneurship, you get the magical alchemy of great results. Technology Accelerators: Good-to-great companies think differently about the role of technology.
- The Flywheel and the Doom Loop: Those who launch radical change programs and wrenching restructurings will almost certainly fail to make the leap.
“Some of the key concepts discerned in the study,” comments Jim Collins, "fly in the face of our modern business culture and will, quite frankly, upset some people.”
Perhaps, but who can afford to ignore these findings?
Five years ago, Jim Collins asked the question, "Can a good company become a great company and if so, how?" In Good to Great Collins, the author of Built to Last, concludes that it is possible, but finds there are no silver bullets. Collins and his team of researchers began their quest by sorting through a list of 1,435 companies, looking for those that made substantial improvements in their performance over time. They finally settled on 11--including Fannie Mae, Gillette, Walgreens, and Wells Fargo--and discovered common traits that challenged many of the conventional notions of corporate success. Making the transition from good to great doesn't require a high-profile CEO, the latest technology, innovative change management, or even a fine-tuned business strategy. At the heart of those rare and truly great companies was a corporate culture that rigorously found and promoted disciplined people to think and act in a disciplined manner. Peppered with dozens of stories and examples from the great and not so great, the book offers a well-reasoned road map to excellence that any organization would do well to consider. Like Built to Last, Good to Great is one of those books that managers and CEOs will be reading and rereading for years to come. --Harry C. Edwards
