One of the toughest lessons every business leader learns is how hard it is to generate consistent, sustained growth. That's especially true in unpredictable economic environments like the one we're experiencing today
Albuquerque, NM (PRWEB) January 27, 2009
Steve McKee, president of McKee Wallwork Cleveland and author of When Growth Stalls: How It Happens, Why You're Stuck and What To Do About It (Jossey-Bass, March 2009), today announced the launch of the forthcoming book's website -- When Growth Stalls -- and blog -- When Growth Stalls Blog. Both are dedicated to examining the internal factors contributing to stalled growth that McKee has identified through years of research and professional experience.
"One of the toughest lessons every business leader learns is how hard it is to generate consistent, sustained growth. That's especially true in unpredictable economic environments like the one we're experiencing today," McKee says. "When Growth Stalls presents insights into how companies lose their way, and exposes the destructive, and often hidden, internal dynamics that hinder successful turnarounds."
Combining extensive research, acute observations and detailed case studies, McKee diagnoses the problem and elaborates on the practical steps managers can take to get their companies back on track. When Growth Stalls makes the convincing case that, regardless of what's going on outside of an enterprise, it's what's inside that counts.
The website includes reviews from notable corporate leaders from companies including Zappos.com, Denny's, and Red Lion Hotels, as well as a simple, research-based assessment visitors to the site can take that can help them understand what internal factors may be hindering their own companies' return to the growth curve. Additionally, there is a podcast interview with McKee about the book.
The blog offers McKee's running commentary regarding how the principles he has discovered relate to the business news of the day. Continually updated, the blog makes for interesting, informative, and eye-opening reading. It also links to his monthly column in BusinessWeek Online.
About When Growth Stalls:
Based on years of proprietary research, When Growth Stalls demonstrates that sluggish growth is generally produced not by mismanagement or strategic blundering, but by natural market forces and internal management dynamics that often go unrecognized. Regardless of what's going on outside of an enterprise, it is the four subtle and destructive internal factors the author has identified that conspire to keep companies off of the growth path. When Growth Stalls is published by Jossey-Bass, an imprint of Wiley, for a March 2009 release. For more information on the book and author Steve McKee, please visit http://www.WhenGrowthStalls.com.
