From Publishers Weekly
Financial and tech consultant Tatum's excellent guide brings fresh insight that will help fast-growing companies navigate the fatal trap of no man's land, a perilous zone where they have outgrown the habits and practices that fueled their early growth but have not yet adopted new practices and resources to cope with their new situation and challenges. The growth that leads a company into No Man's Land will not lead a company out of it, warns the author. In the adolescent growth stage that kicks in around the 20-employee mark, companies must return to the fundamental promise they offer customers, shifting from intuitive and undisciplined leadership from the founder and low wages and grueling hours for employees to a more efficient and scalable system. Often, this transition requires a new set of leaders with experience at large companies and a different financial structure. Tatum's potent guide communicates the key ideas vividly with engaging stories and evocative writing, and will help leaders identify and survive a key phase in a company's growth. (Sept.)

Somewhere between small and big is a place where many companies get lost. Welcome to No Mans Land. Few firms make it to the other side. But it doesnt have to be that way.
This is a really important book. Doug Tatum knows more about the subject than anyone else on earth. Hes also lived through No Mans Land in his own companywhich sets him apart from most others who have written about the passage from small to big. His book provides a ton of useful information for entrepreneurs.
