Clearly structured case studies of successful growth companies
This book presents a unique range of case studies of fast growing firms in different stages of their development. The companies covered in this volume mainly belong to modern high-tech industries like electronic commerce, biotechnology, software and others. From an investigation of their corporate histories, the authors derive the major success factors in the management of fast growing companies. Clearly structured and concisely presented, the cases enable readers to learn from the experiences of successful firms and to derive general conclusions for the management of growth companies. Thus, the book contributes to the literature on success factors of growth companies. It also serves as a case collection for courses on entrepreneurship as well as on technology and innovation management.
"Success Factors of Fast Growing Companies" addresses graduate students of business administration, practitioners in fast growing companies and scholars in the field of entrepreneurship and innovation management.
