A rigorous two-year study of the top 800 value-creating public companies found that growth generated "internally" through a commitment to customer satisfaction, employee engagement, and profitability resulted in "consistent" employee retention, stock value improvements, and better returns on investment.

In "The Road to Organic Growth," Edward Hess shares the full results of his breakthrough study, providing fresh, and often-surprising perspectives on what it really takes to foster organic growth. Using instructive examples from leading companies such as SYSCO, Best Buy, Tiffany & Company, Outback Steakhouse, and Stryker Corporation, Hess reveals the strategies these trailblazers used to achieve long-term growth from within.

Drawing upon original research, interviews, and in-depth corporate studies, Hess identifies the six keys to achieving organic growth and-most important-explains how to seamlessly and consistently incorporate them into a formula for sustainability and competitive advantage to Develop a simple, easy-to-understand business model and growth strategy Be entrepreneurial at the point of customer contact Measure everything-from finances to operations to behaviors Build an engaged, loyal, and multi-talented people pipeline Find humble, internally-focused operators to lead your company Be an execution and technology champion
