“Verne Harnish has once again proven he’s the Growth Guy. Scaling Up is packed with the tools to help you bust through the barriers to growth and climb learning curves faster. But don’t let your leadership team carry the load alone- multiply your impact by sharing the book with every employee on your team.”
-Liz Wiseman, best-selling author of Multipliers and Rookie Smarts
Consensus Customer Day Texas took place this week. During the event, our customers got a copy of the book “Scaling Up” by Verne Harnish. We believe that growth powered by the right technology and the right strategy should always be the ultimate goal. That is why we partner with great SMBs like our customers and we help them to scale up their business.
During this event, we spoke about different topics and one of those was the best-selling book “Scaling up”. As mentioned before, we gave a copy of the book to each of our customers, that is why it was very important to explain to our SMBs the different tools and techniques for fast-growing companies teams (from frontline employees to senior executives). Our customers also got a better understanding of the four major decision areas in which every company must get right in the process of scaling up: People, Strategy, Execution, and Cash.
About the book and the author

The goal of this book is to help you turn what feels like an anchor into the 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 Checklist™, which more than 40,000 firms around the globe have used to scale their companies successfully — many to $1 billion and beyond.
