Description

Strategy, capability, and commitment are the three vital building blocks to competitiveness. Each is illustrated in these engaging stories of ten exceptional businesses chosen from nearly five hundred past winners of Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies program, one of this country’s most prestigious business awards. Drawing on interviews with senior executives, owners, and founders of some of Canada’s most dynamic—and most interesting—enterprises, Building the Best: Lessons from Inside Canada’s Best Managed Companies delivers crisp and memorable lessons in how obstacles are overcome and success is achieved.

Step inside the boardrooms and the front lines of an array of fascinating companies to learn from real world experiences how the managers and entrepreneurs behind some of Canada’s most successful enterprises have overcome the challenges in their industries—and how their strategies can be applied to any business.

These rare glimpses of admired Canadian companies are compelling reading. And with perspective from the professionals at Deloitte and commentary by faculty members of Queen’s School of Business, this book is a must-read for anyone in business.

Read and learn from the experiences of these winning companies:
- Magnotta Winery
- Armour Transportation Systems
- Spin Master
- Mediagrif Interactive Technologies
- Boston Pizza
- PCL Construction Group of Companies
- EllisDon
- Cirque du Soleil
- Harry Rosen
