'To hell with leadership, where's the growth?'. So demands Lew Platt, the former chairman and CEO of Hewlett-Packard, in an interview with Venture Catalyst author, Don Laurie. Platt's audacious question captures the essence and spirit of this book - a powerful, eye-opening approach to achieving spectacular corporate growth, regardless of economic boom-or-bust cycles. Aiming right at the heart of the matter, Laurie reminds us that business leaders are charged with two mission-critical responsibilities - they must meet (or exceed) Wall Street's expectations on a quarterly basis, and they need to foster a steady flow of new technologies and products to fuel continuous double-digit growth, rolling three to five years into the future. The tension between balancing short and long-term goals often leads companies to play it safe, managing growth with traditional strategies - organic growth through product line extensions and international expansion or acquisition - with lackluster results.
