Harnessing the Passion through Growth Management
A Growth Management Notebook By Joel Strom
"This Growth Management guidebook and, for that matter, Joel's entire consulting career, is based on a very simple premise: the greatest challenge facing closely held growing businesses is not growing sales. It is managing the growth that additional sales create. Owners and managers of closely held growing businesses all say they understand this. Growing sales means nothing without growing profits. Yet, the facts say otherwise.
The purpose of this guidebook is to help companies, whatever their current situation, profitably and successfully achieve their growth objectives and build a strong sustainable enterprise. The suggestions and recommendations included in this book are based on Joel's proven Growth Management Processes that have been developed over nearly 30 years. These Growth Management Processes are based on certain premises related to what happens when companies grow and what management practices will ensure that the growth is successful. There are no management fads in this guidebook. All of the practices are time tested and solid. This guidebook is for the owners and managers of real businesses. Businesses that require the best return out of every dollar invested.
With the understanding of the practices that separate a successfully growing business from a not-so-successful growing business, the Growth Management processes themselves become very logical and very easy to implement. They can be applied to any organization that is growing or transitioning no matter what phase of growth the company is in.
The notebook is packed with great information, as well as worksheets and tools to help implement growth management processes in your business.
