If you are looking for an expanded and updated version of this 2002 best-seller, look for Verne Harnish’s latest title Scaling Up: How a Few Companies Make It...and Why the Rest Don’t (Rockefeller Habits 2.0). In Scaling Up, Harnish and his team share practical tools and techniques for building an industry-dominating business. 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. This book can 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. 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 $1 billion 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 and enjoy the ride.

Says SelectBooks President Kenzi Sugihara, "Verne has a proven track record and a stellar reputation with top executives across this country. His new book offers the same rock solid guidance to a wider audience."From the Inside Flap:
Is your firm ready for dynamic growth?
"Everyone talks about the 'entrepreneurial glass ceiling' and advises you to 'let go,' 'delegate more,' 'concentrate on alignment,' 'be unique,' 'remain nimble as your company grows,' etc., but no one, until now, ever gives you a practical guide on HOW to achieve all of that and keep your sanity. This practical guide is all about breaking that entrepreneurial glass ceiling and moving to a professionally managed company while retaining the entrepreneurial spirit." Alan Rudy, CEO, Express-Med
