Description

A key concern today for all those involved in business development is how to grow your company not only faster but cheaper (or economically).
Organic Growth is a rigorous new concept, grounded in a common sense, two-pronged approach, that is, companies can continue to pursue high-risk, high-reward growth strategies, but they should also be very aware of overlooked or sub-optimized opportunities for growth within their own company.
This book is a guide to how to dynamically combine managerial and 'people' skills to unlock a hidden layer of corporate value.
Foreword (Albert George, President, Sodexho Alliance)
