Nearly 40% of businesses that experience high growth (20%pa or more) will suffer a period of contraction immediately after. This book explains why this is happens and describes the warning signs of a business growing too fast.

The book then looks at seven key areas of a business and explains how each of these areas can prevent or undermine High Growth and then goes on to explain what can be done to overcome these challenges.

The book is written so that each Chapter is self-contained, allowing readers to look first at those areas which are causing them the most problems. Nonetheless, the book emphasises that all businesses are highly integrated entities and that improvements in one area will inevitably spill over into others.

The book also uses a number of tools and techniques to help the reader address specific problems and these are available to readers as a free download.
