Built for Growth - The Starbucks Way,
This review is from: Built for Growth: Expanding Your Business Around the Corner or Across the Globe (Hardcover)Built for Growth was an extremely thought provoking and eye opening read. Rubinfeld and Hemingway asked themselves a crucial question: 'What makes the growth of truly exceptional companies different from the other companies?' - by answering which, the authors have discovered timeless principles that distinguish growth strategies of outstanding companies.
Of all books on business strategy, this one packs a rare combination of academic rigor, practicality and insight.
As a current business student with a summer internship in a "Built for Growth company," I was amazed as their careful analysis rang true. This is one book I can highly recommend to any student, professional, or business educator looking for those not-so-subtle traits that characterize a truly "Built for Growth" company!!
