It's been over a decade since Verne Harnish's best-selling book Mastering the Rockefeller Habits was first released. Scaling Up: How a Few Companies Make It...and Why the Rest Don't is the first major revision of this business classic. In Scaling Up, Harnish and his team share practical tools and techniques for building an industry-dominating business. These approaches have been honed from over three decades of advising tens of thousands of CEOs and executives and helping them navigate the increasing complexities (and weight) that come with scaling up a venture. This book is written so everyone -- from frontline employees to senior executives -- can get aligned in contributing to the growth of a firm. There's no reason to do it alone, yet many top leaders feel like they are the ones dragging the rest of the organization up the S-curve of growth. The goal of this book is to help you turn what feels like an anchor into wind at your back -- creating a company where the team is engaged; the customers are doing your marketing; and everyone is making money. To accomplish this, Scaling Up focuses on the four major decision areas every company must get right: People, Strategy, Execution, and Cash. The book includes a series of new one-page tools including the updated One-Page Strategic Plan and the Rockefeller Habits ChecklistTM, which more than 40,000 firms around the globe have used to scale their companies successfully -- many to $1 billion and beyond. Running a business is ultimately about freedom. Scaling Up shows business leaders how to get their organizations moving in sync to create something significant and enjoy the ride.

The Right Way to Adjust Your Prices

"What the hell is going on with your pricing?" my colleague asked during a once-over of a proposal I was about to send out. I began to stutter an apology. I knew my pricing had been too high. But then … the shocker: "Honey, your pricing is way too low." Too low? Bollocks. This is what I'd been charging for the past year. After further phone debate, I revised my rate upward, then cringed as I sent the proposal. Less than a day later, my client sent it back, signed and with a deposit. I raised my prices and earned the business? Yup. A few of you might also need a good smack on the pricing front.

This Founder Created a Genius Way to Do Market Testing on the Cheap

How do you market test a new product when you can't pay for testing? Joelle Mertzel found a sneaky solution -- and it cost only $39. Here's how she developed her new butter dish, Butterie.  Mertzel wanted to make a flip-top dish so that butter could be stored unrefrigerated -- safe up to 21 days, and so soft! -- without smearing all over the lid. But would people want it? “Thorough research is the key,” says Mertzel, who used to own a PR agency. “You don’t want to spend all your money and time on a product no one will buy.” She began by surveying people from her daily life. Her next step: form

Tech is Disrupting HR But the Human Element Remains Critical

Emphasis has shifted from talent management through integrated processes and systems, to people manag
