James C. Collins Career

After his graduation, Jim Collins started to work as a consultant at McKinsey & Company and continued his career by working as a product manager for Hewlett-Packard. Unfortunately, the business life did not suit him, and consequently, he left the company to support his wife in her triathlon career.

Jim Collins has always been a curious person and this keeps him driven. Therefore, he began his research and teaching career on the faculty at Stanford Graduate School of Business in 1989. Jim Collins taught a course on entrepreneurship where he identified himself as being a remarkable teacher. He was remarkable for his innovative classes, and he was able to carefully listen to people and made sure not to waste the students’ or his own time.

Due to his engagement and contributions, he was awarded the Distinguished Teaching Award, an award intended to recognize individual faculty for sustained performance of excellence in teaching, in 1992.

Jim Collins soon continued his passion by founding a management laboratory in Colorado in 1995. He started conducting research and engages in Socratic dialogue, an open discussion that is used to identify the value and truth of individuals’ opinion by question-driven instructions, with CEO’s and senior leadership teams. In this period, he had a team of 21 assistants to deliver the work that eventually led to the introduction of ‘Built to Last’, and ‘Good to Great.’

At this time, he refused to get a Ph.D. because he taught it would change his thinking. Jim Collins followed Professor Porras’s advice to start a consulting career. He worked next to his research with multiple corporations such as CNN International, and other organizations like Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, the Girl Scouts of the USA, the Leadership Network of Churches, and the United States Marine Corps. On the other hand, he knew that working in the consulting industry would substantially limit the ability to keep the open mind necessary to ask and answer genuine questions.

As a result, he continued his research initiatives and he currently provides lectures in social sectors such as education, healthcare, governments, and non-profit organizations.

In his spare time, he still enjoys rock climbing which he does at this moment for more than forty years. He already climbed the north face of the Half Dome and the south face of El Capitan in Yosemite Valley.

Jim Collins’ work has been featured in Fortune, The Economist, Business Week, USA Today, Industry Week, Inc., Harvard Business Review, and Fast Company. He still conducts research projects, consults, and teaches with executives from private, public, and social industries to identify insights to add to his lectures, books, and articles.
