Growth Strategy

Growing a business yields many benefits. It can attract talent, provide economies of scale, reward investors and head off obsolescence. For these and other reasons, even businesses that don’t need growth to prosper might seek it out anyway.

But not all types of growth pay off. Some can actually destroy value, as when an acquisition fails or when management spends more than it should on a given initiative. Other growth trajectories are unsustainable. And the bigger or more mature a company is, the harder it can be to achieve significant growth at all.
