About the Summary
Conventional business wisdom dictates that companies should focus their sights on growth. But growth is no certain thing, say the authors of The Growth Gamble.

With this summary and its invaluable New Businesses Traffic Lights Toolkit, businesses have what they need to grow smartly.
