    Success Built to Last

    Jerry Porras co-authored international business bestseller Built to Last: Successful Habits of Visionary Companies, with Jim Collins. The book is based on the results of an exhaustive six-year research project aimed at discovering the approaches and behaviors of the most visionary companies of the past two centuries. Translated into 25 languages, it has sold more than one million copies worldwide.

    Jerry is Stanford Graduate School of Business Lane Professor of Organizational Behavior and Change, Emeritus. Porras has taught courses in leadership, interpersonal dynamics, and organizational development and change in the MBA and executive programs. He directed the School′s Executive Program on Leading and Managing Change for 16 years. During the period 1988 to 2001 he served as the University′s Faculty Athletic Representative to the Pacific-10 Conference and the National Collegiate Athletic Association and on two occasions was President of the Pacific-10 Conference Council. From 1991 to 1994 he was an Associate Dean for Academic Affairs in the GSB.

    Winner of numerous awards, Porras′ honors include the Brillante Award presented by the National Society of Hispanic MBAs; the Silver Apple Award presented by the Stanford Business School Alumni Association; the Kantor Medal awarded by the Pacific Graduate School of Psychology; 2002 Community Educator of the Year from the Hispanic Net, and the Robert T. Davis Award from the Stanford Business School.

    A student of organizational change, Porras has helped numerous clients in the U.S., Mexico, and Argentina improve their organizational performance. As a lecturer on visionary companies he has delivered presentations to over 200 senior management audiences worldwide.

    Porras has served on the editorial boards of many academic publications, including the Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Journal of Applied Behavioral Science, Business Review and the Journal of Organizational Change Management.

    In addition to over 40 articles or reviews for leading publications, Porras has published two books on organizational success. In 1987, he wrote Stream Analysis: A Powerful New Way to Diagnose and Manage Organizational Change, which has since been converted into an exciting software tool used for diagnosing, planning and managing change within an organization. The second book is Built to Last.

    Jerry believes that enabling individuals to build successful, healthy organizations is a powerful catalyst for the creation of successful, healthy societies.
