This excellent, short work is a classic in its genre. Author Ram Charan outlines in no-nonsense, albeit sometimes prolix, style the essentials that all managers need to know to make their businesses and their revenues grow. Charan offers 10 basic principles, explains each one clearly, and provides anecdotal examples. The author readily admits that the principles are mostly common sense, and even perhaps widely understood (in part, from his other popular works). However, he says that the problem for most businesses is not having the right ideas, but rather turning the ideas into action. getAbstract recommends this mainstay for any business manager's bookshelf. It will help you face the challenge of growth.
In this summary, you will learn
- How to make your company grow and earn more money; and
- What 10 principles you should follow to attain profitable growth.
