Scaling Up, by Verne Harnish - Intro

Scaling up Verne Harnish

I am so excited about reading our next book: "Scaling Up", byVerne Harnish.

Scaling Up is a blueprint for building a growth company. In this book, Verne Harnish has pulled back the curtain on how the fastest-growing companies in the world fuel their growth.In Scaling Up, Mr. Harnish and his team share practical tools and techniques for building an industry-dominating business.

These approaches have been honed for over three decades, gleaned from in numerous hours of advising tens of thousands of CEO's and executives and helping them navigate the increasing complexities (and weight) that come with scaling up a venture.

This book is written so everyone -- from frontline employees to senior executives -- can get aligned in contributing to the growth of a firm. There's no reason to do it alone, yet many top leaders feel like they are the ones dragging the rest of the organization up the S-curve of growth.

The goal of this book is to help you turn what feels like an anchor into the wind at your back -- creating a company where the team is engaged, the customers are doing your marketing, and everyone is making money. To accomplish this, Scaling Up focuses on the four major decision areas every company must get right: People, Strategy, Execution, and Cash.

The book includes a series of new one-page tools including the updated One-Page Strategic Plan and the Rockefeller Habits Checklist™, which more than 40,000 firms around the globe have used to scale their companies successfully -- many to the $1 billion mark and beyond.

Running a business is ultimately about freedom. Scaling Up shows business leaders how to get their organizations moving in sync to create something significant while enjoying the ride.
