The 10 Commandments of Business Growth
Contributed by Mark Graham, the president of Right Sleeve Marketing, Inc.
As an entrepreneur, I’ve always been interested to know how Goldman Sachs grew from a mid-tier firm to a global powerhouse over the course of a few decades. I’ve been reading Charles Ellis’s “The Partnership: The Making of Goldman Sachs,” a book that sheds a lot of light on growth management.
Admittedly, I have very little connection to the investment banking industry these days, nor do I endorse the shenanigans of modern-day Wall Street. However, what I have found interesting about this book are some of the timeless business principles that can be applied to almost any enterprise, regardless of industry or company size.
