American Management Association
Business growth is truly a double-edged sword. When it is controlled and well managed, it has the potential of providing tremendous rewards to the leaders and shareholders of an emerging company. When growth is poorly planned and uncontrolled, it often leads to financial distress and failure. What this means is that the need of the company to grow must be tempered by the need to understand that meaningful, long-term, profitable growth is the by-product of effective management and planning. A failure to create this balance will result in vulnerability to attack by competitors, creditors, hostile employees and creative takeover specialists.
