Editorial Reviews

"This book is excellent. It provides great tools and techniques on a core concept that driving the cash and delivering sustainable growth need different management styles. There's no consultancy speak here just well thought through practical advice and comments....follow the process and you'll get results!" -- Sir Nick Scheele, former CEO of Ford Motor Company "It is well known that profitable growth is a powerful creator of shareholder value yet most organisations are best suited to managing the status quo. This book gives a well structured, practical, easy to use guide on how to embed growth in an organisation. It is a good combination of professional techniques and experienced based observations on the dynamics and pitfalls of making growth happen in organizations." -- Andrew Harrison, CEO of EasyJet   "I enjoyed it all and particularly the section on the recession. It reinforced many of the actions we have been taking. It has an easy style and the practical charts bring the concepts to life." -- Jim O'Donnell, President of BMW North America
