What You Must Do to Increase the Value of Your Growing Firm
Harnish and his team share practical tools and techniques for building an industry-dominating business.
What are the underlying handful of fundamentals that haven’t changed for over a hundred years?
From Harnish’s famous Mastering a One Page Strategic Plan process that has been a best-selling article on the web to his concise outline of eight practical actions you can take to strengthen your culture, this book is a compilation of best practices adapted from some of the best-run firms on the planet.
Lastly, there are case studies demonstrating the validity of Harnish’s practical approaches.
These approaches have been honed from over three decades of advising tens of thousands of CEOs 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 wind at your back — creating a company where the team is engaged; the customers are doing your marketing; and everyone is making money.
