Since it was first published in 1986, "Growing Pains" has become a classic resource for understanding how start-ups can make the transition to become large, professionally-managed organizations that maintain the special spark that launched them. In the fourth edition of "Growing Pains," authors Eric Flamholtz and Yvonne Randle have thoroughly revised and updated the book to include new ideas and concepts including information about strategic planning, Sarbanes-Oxley, family businesses, and overcoming growing pains, as well as new examples and cases of companies.

Eric Flamholtz is Professor of Human Resource Management and Organizational Behavior in the Anderson Graduate School of Management and a faculty research fellow in the Harold and Pauline Price Center for Entrepreneurial Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). He is also President of Management Systems Consulting Corporation, which he co-founded in 1978.

Yvonne Randle is Vice President of Management Systems Consulting Corporation. She has extensive consulting experience with companies ranging in size from small entrepreneurships to multi-billion dollar enterprises and is a lecturer on executive education programs in the Anderson School of Management, University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).
