This book describes and outlines the various people, process, and tools that are involved in scaling a business – whether it’s a startup or a Fortune 500 behemoth. It’s a great refresher for those of you with deep experience, and it’s practically your bible for those in a startup environment (especially first timers). There isn’t anything new or novel at what’s presented here, but the completeness with which they approach the topic is outstanding. It’s also from 2010, so it’s very current.
