Why do some companies come and go while others endure? According to McKinsey & Company, Inc. consultants Mehrdad Baghai, Stephen Coley, and David White, the secret to a lasting enterprise is sustained growth. In The Alchemy of Growth, the authors offer a practical guide for jumpstarting expansion and keeping it going. "Growth is a noble pursuit. It creates new jobs for the community and wealth for shareholders. It can turn ordinary companies into stimulating environments where employees find a sense of purpose in their work," they write. "Growth's transformative power is akin to the alchemy of old."

The authors describe the approaches that have succeeded in helping their corporate clients around the world to step up the pace. For instance, companies must simultaneously focus on "three horizons" critical to growth. The first is the current bread-and-butter of the firm; the second, the fast-developing entrepreneurial ventures; and the third, the ideas that will germinate into tomorrow's profits. The best part of the book: the real-life examples of firms that have transformed themselves from laggards to supercharged growth companies. Take Disney, for example. After founder Walt Disney's death in 1966, the company stagnated, with its theme park and film business slipping. But after Michael Eisner took over in 1984, Disney boosted its average annual returns to 29 percent, on the strength of growth in such new avenues as Disney stores, ESPN, and resort development. The Alchemy of Growth is an instructive handbook for managers interested in spurring their companies to new heights. --Dan Ring -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

A perspective on corporate growth and change which works through the need to maintain a simultaneous focus on three 'horizons' - today's business, emerging businesses and longer term options and the implications for strategy, management and structures.
As you would expect of a book out of the McKinsey stable, this is on an issue of importance to business, is well researched and analysed and very readable and well presented. As you would also expect, it is focused on large corporates, and on strategies for their business success, as measured by exceptional growth and returns to stockholders.
It provides one important perspective on the issue of corporate growth and development, to be compared with other perspectives.
There are obvious comparisons with Collins & Porras: 'Built to Last' both in the concern with continuing exceptional performance over an extended period and in the care taken to explain the research base from which the findings are derived. However, whereas Collins & Porras are concerned primarily with values and culture, Baghai et al are primarily interested in strategies for the selection, development and management of a portfolio of businesses and the implications of those strategies for structuring, staffing and operations.
The fundamental thesis is simple and can be stated in a few propositions:
The companies that have been successful in maintaining high rates of growth with superior profitability are those that have learnt to manage well to three different time horizons at the same time - today's business, the next generation of emerging businesses, and the longer term options out of which the next generation of businesses will arise.

Von Ein Kunde am 8. Mai 1999
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The authors of this book bring a missionary zeal to the subject of business growth. Growth must be embraced by both organizations set in by institutional sclerosis as the necessary ingredient for rejuvenation and renewal and smaller organizations seeking new horizons for profits. In an era of downsizing and corporate retrenchment, it is a message of hope. Business Growers should be rewarded and acclaimed for their contribution to society and economic growth. This message should not only be embraced by CEO's and Boards of Directors but also by every member of the organization. A successful growth strategie spurred by good talent management would enable members of an organization to participate in this wealth creating process. A strength of the study lies in the diversity of the case studies in both geographies and nature of industries. World-Class Growers are not only found in Sillicon Valley but in such industries as real estate, consumer goods, gas and electric companies. Another strength of the book lies in its simplicity , a how to guide for businesses.
From the book, one can glean the fascinating stories of those who have built these businesses from Softbank's founder Masayoshi Son's who standing on a crate proclaimed to his two employers in 1981:" We are going to make US$100 million in five years and $500 million in ten years and one day , we will become to US $10 billion company" to Li Ka-Shing's ability to use his Chinese connections to grow his firm into a multi-billion company. It is shame that the authors are not able to give longer profiles of the history of some of these growth companies, a kind of oral history of how visionaries have built empires.

How to turn a booklet into a book --> use big print and add a huge appendix (about half the book). It took four authors to write this book?
Make a nice short read in the bookstore cafe but it won't last more than a cup or two.
Here's a chapter's worth - manage three growth time-horizons simultaneously. I just saved you a cup.
However, the content IS important and useful.

This book is based on research on 30 companies in Asia, Australia, Europe, and North American, selected for exceptional sales and profit growth. The research findings reveal a three-phase pattern for growth which is analyzed and illustrated with cases. The pattern encompasses the embryonic, emergent, and mature phases of a business's life cycle. The underlying pattern is a continuous pipeline of business-building initiatives that focuses on three horizons: extending and defending the core business; building emerging businesses, and creating viable future opportunities. This examination of growth strategies proves highly enlightening. The combination of insights based on solid research yields a great book. The appendix profiles each of the firms the authors' studied. Recommended. Reviewed by Gerry Stern, founder, Stern & Associates, author of Stern's Sourcefinder: The Master Directory to HR and Business Management Information & Resources, Stern's CyberSpace SourceFinder, and Stern's Compensation and Benefits SourceFinder.

It seems like a no-brainer that companies need to grow in order to survive or compete, and this book isn't interesting because it tells us what we already know. What's interesting about this book is that the authors do a wonderful job of taking substantial research, abstracting the trends, and rendering their findings into very clear and usable models and messages that can help most managers who are thinking about growth. It was particularly interesting for me, as I work as an ebusiness consultant for a large IT integrator and many of my customers are trying to start new staircases (as described in the book) via Internet channels and I can immediately see the applicability of Alchemy to what they're trying to do.
The book is a quick read (almost comically quick, given the price) and mercifully low on buzz words. Right now, I don't see the appendix as being particularly useful, but I may find it more so later. Annotating the bibliography would have added a lot of value.
