Overview

Winner of the International Book Awards for General BusinessWinner of the Readers' Favorite International Book Award for Non-Fiction BusinessIt's been over a decade since Verne Harnish's best-selling book Mastering the Rockefeller Habits was first released. Scaling Up (Rockefeller Habits 2.0) is the first major revision of this business classic which details practical tools and techniques for building an industry-dominating business. This book is written so everyone — from frontline employees to senior executives — can get aligned in contributing to the growth of a firm. 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 ChecklistTM, which more than 40,000 firms around the globe have used to scale their companies successfully — many to $10 million, $100 million, and $1 billion and beyond – while enjoying the climb!

Reviews

"Scaling Up addresses the second half of the venture ball game, something often lost in all the hoopla about incubating disruptive innovation during the first half.  Half-time scores don't matter - it's all about how you finish the game.  So get yourself into Verne's locker room for a great half-time pep talk, and then get yourself out on the field to play a great second half." — Geoffrey Moore, Author of Crossing the Chasm

"Verne delivers more value per page than anyone else in the business!" — Henry McGovern, co-founder and Chairman of AmRest (WSE: EAT)

"Scaling Up not only opened my eyes and helped direct my focus as the new leader of this non-profit organization, but the concept itself literally became our new holistic initiative. With these new skills, we were able grow our organization exponentially and reach out to new funders." — Joshua Troderman, CEO, Shalom Learning

"Verne Harnish is more committed to helping companies grow than any other person on the planet. Really. He's also radically practical in his approach and that is reflected throughout this terrific book." — Patrick Lencioni, president, The Table Group; best-selling author of The Five Dysfunctions of a Team and The Advantage

"Fast-growing companies — not small ones or big ones — create almost all the jobs and innovation in our economy, and Verne has been an invaluable guide to leaders of such companies, like me. Scaling Up helps us put in place the disciplines critical to building a significant business." — Graham Weston, Chairman and CEO, Rackspace (NYSE: RAX)

"Verne's tools and techniques have been key to scaling up Benetton to become the #1 international fashion brand in India. They work!" — Sanjeev Mohanty, CEO, Benetton India

"Imagine walking into a library and finding one book that captures the ideas of all the books in the library. Scaling Up is that business book. You will not have to go any farther." — Jack Stack, founder and CEO of SRC Holdings; best-selling author of The Great Game of Business and A Stake in the Outcome

"We've scaled up our company from a single office near Calgary to 2,000 employees in 165 locations across Western Canada. Verne's tools and techniques have been critical to helping us drive and manage this growth during my 20 years as CEO — and ultimately to freeing me up as the founder to pursue other interests." — Scott Tannas, founder and Vice Chairman, Western Financial Group;  senator, Canadian Parliament
