News & Opinion: Books about Growth

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 2:38 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

In the July/August issue of Harvard Business Review, they spent the entire issue talking about growth (actually it was a double issue). There was a book review in that issue called The Growth Boosters. The article examined the three important titles written in the last couple of years on the topic of growth.
What made me think of the HBR article was one of the reviewed titles, How to Grow When Markets Don't by Adrian Slywotzky and Richard Wise, is now available in paperback. While not available in paperback, the other two books reviewed were Profitable Growth is Everyone's Business by Ram Charan and Beyond the Core by Chris Zook.
