Review:

"The Curve Ahead is unique book that focuses on the growth challenges of mid-sized companies. Dave Power draws on a lifetime of experiences to show growth company leaders how to sustain growth over time by building innovation into the rhythm of business operations.' - Eric Schmidt, Executive Chairman, Google

'Successful growth companies never stop searching for the next innovation. Entrepreneurs who want to build more than a one-product company need to read The Curve Ahead.' - Vinod Khosla, Khosla Ventures

'The Curve Ahead should be a guidance system for all entrepreneurs who have seen early success but must now scale their company to fulfill their original dreams. Dave has worked with several of my portfolio companies and I have seen how his approach can produce powerful, measurable, and lasting results.' - Larry Bohn, Managing Director, General Catalyst Partners

'A 'must read" for the CEO that discovers that the engine that fueled early stage rocket ship growth is slowing down.' - Janet Kraus, CEO, Peach Underneath, and Senior Lecturer at Harvard Business School

'It is a Have Lunch or Be Lunch world out there. The Curve Ahead reveals what the most successful CEOs have learned: you need to find your next S-Curve if you want to keep growing.' - Scott McNealy, Chairman of Wayin and Former CEO of Sun Microsystems

'Dave Power's The Curve Ahead gives us a thoughtful presentation and an excellent practical guide to keeping new companies on their growth path as well as helping re-invigorate companies that have stumbled on the way. Dave reminds us all that continued growth always involves anticipating what will make you successful in the future and then doing the work across the organization - to make that future actually happen.' - Joe Lassiter, Faculty Chair of the Harvard Innovation Lab and Heinz Professor of Management Practice at the Harvard Business School

'The Curve Ahead lays out a powerful framework for creating sustainable growth [Dave] Power draws on a 25 year career as an executive, investor and advisor to growth businesses to provide a thoughtful and compelling roadmap for growth company managers confronting the challenge of driving new growth opportunities!' - John G. Hayes, Great Hill Partners
