9780132339520: Profit or Growth?: Why You Don't Have to Choose

“The simultaneous pursuit of growth and profitability is one of the most exquisite–and difficult–leadership dilemmas. Bala Chakravarthy and Peter Lorange provide penetrating insights and persuasive real-life examples on how a company can address this dilemma through continuous renewal and internal entrepreneurship. Unusual for books on leadership, their discussion spans from theory through practical implementation.”

–Nick Shreiber, Former President & CEO, Tetra Pak Group

 

“A continuous renewal of the firm’s businesses is essential for driving its profitable growth. This book gives credible insights and rich examples on how these renewal strategies can be shaped and executed successfully. I am recommending it to my key managers and business friends–essential reading!”

–Peter Brabeck-Letmathe, Chairman & CEO, Nestlé

 

Drawing on extensive research with world-class companies, this book introduces four proven strategies for continuous renewal. You’ll discover powerful ways to protect and extend your core businesses; capture new opportunities distant from them; and “bridge” these two strategies with two others to evolve towards profitable diversification.

 

Then, through real-world case studies from great companies around the world, you’ll learn how to execute on these strategies–achieving superior growth and profitability in any business environment.
