Written by seasoned experts, The Granularity of Growth provides a rigorous analytical foundation for understanding growth and an architecture for managing it. By using new methods for breaking growth down into its constituent elements, this book provides a much richer description of growth opportunities, and argues that real winning plays can emerge only from a much finer understanding of market segments, their needs, and the capabilities required to serve them all. The challenge is to find a way to manage operations in minute detail, yet still handle strategic choices at a high level, and it is this highly credible author team that shows you how to make these choices at a more granular level without losing focus or drowning in a sea of complexity. Ultimately, The Granularity of Growth reveals why growth is so important for large companies, what enables certain companies to grow so spectacularly, how they are able to take both a broad and a granular view of their markets, why they are careful to ensure that their growth comes from multiple sources, and how they choose the markets in which they compete.
