Managing for growth at each stage of the organization’s life cycle

Evidence suggests that only about 10% of start-ups and 30% of entrepreneurs make it beyond 5 years. Methods for control and leadership in the start-up or early growth stages are wildly different from those needed to successfully manage a complex organization consisting of multiple departments, divisions, product lines, or geographic spread. To succeed, business leaders should be aware of which stage their organization is in, the characteristics of the current stage, and the characteristics of the next stage.   

This book explores various common patterns of management styles and then offers transition strategies to help managers succeed in the digital economy. The authors guide leaders to prepare for these transitions by laying the foundations or infrastructure needed to prevent a crisis that inhibits further growth. They also provide leaders with a greater understanding of the growth framework, which will help leaders to manage better the development of their companies.
