When Growth Stalls explores how these forces conspire to take companies down. He's been through it, and he has isolated the key symptoms that hold companies back. But the book also looks beyond these natural market forces and explains how four subtle and highly destructive internal factors conspire to keep companies down: a lack of consensus among the management team, a loss of nerve, a loss of focus, and marketing inconsistency.

In ‘When Growth Stalls’, Steve McKee provides practical, hands-on advice to businesses (big and small) struggling with stalled growth or hoping to prevent it. Stalled growth, he says, is the rule, not the exception, even for the best-managed companies. Especially in today’s economic environment. In his book, you’ll discover that most of the time, sluggish growth is the result of natural market forces and widespread destructive internal dynamics-and often unrecognized.

One of the toughest lessons every business leader learns is howhard it is to generate sustained growth. Stalled growth is therule, not the exception--even for the best-managed companies.That's especially true in unpredictable economic environments suchas the one we're experiencing today.

McKee has a unique understanding of what happens when growthstalls. His firm commissioned a study of 700 companies that had atone time been among the nation's fastest-growing businesses.Developed in concert with Decision Analyst, a leading nationalresearch and consulting firm, the study probed areas as diverse ascorporate structure, competition, branding, finance, and strategy.The target respondent profile were CEOs, owners, principals,presidents, managing directors or chairmen of the board. In-depthfollow-up interviews yielded fascinating stories and personalcomments from executives who had been living on the front lines ofreal-life growth crises. McKee presents compelling knowledge abouthow and why companies lose their way, and offers practical adviceabout how they can rekindle growth.

When Growth Stalls demonstrates that sluggish growth isgenerally produced not by mismanagement or strategic blundering butby natural market forces and management dynamics that are oftenunrecognized--and widespread. The book presents sevencharacteristics that commonly correlate with stalled growth andwhat to do about them. Some are external forces to which countlesscompanies have fallen victim: economic upheavals, changing industrydynamics, and increased competition. What McKee points out,however, is how often they catch companies off-guard. Moresurprising are four subtle and highly destructive internal factorsthat conspire to keep companies down: lack of consensus among themanagement team, loss of nerve, loss of focus, and marketinginconsistency. McKee makes the case that, regardless of what'sgoing on outside of an enterprise, it's what's inside thatcounts.

I have been a Steve Mckee follower since high-school here in Albuquerque when I was placed at his (then small) agency for an internship. The internship changed my life. Watching the agency grow and transform over the last 9 years has been motivating and inspiring. 'When Growth Stalls', is yet another gift that Steve McKee has given me. This book became the glue to all the pieces I have picked up from college and real world experience. I have been asking myself, "how do I apply this, what have I truly learned?". Steve's book is funny, simple, and easy to read. I found myself really enjoying all the references/case studies to agencies and campaigns. Being a 26 year old I don't read that many paper books so I wasn't too excited...but once you take off the weird cover (a stoplight Steve? really? haha) you are exposed to a way cooler (I said I was 26) grayish sleek book.

In the effort of trying not to give the book away I would say that one of the highest rewards to reading this book is the 'marketing equation' Steve divulges. Many professors have talked around and about what Steve writes but none spell it out A+B=C.

Reading this book so early on in my life probably saved me from a lot of unknowns. I feel better equipped and more in control of where I am going and HOW to get there.

I highly recommend reading this book wether you're an advertising professional or a small business owner. We all have a 'Top Box'.

Thank you Steve for a great book. Can not wait to send out signed copies for the holidays!

FULL DISCLOSURE: I've interviewed Steve McKee for my web site - because I liked his book - enjoyed the experience, and have exchanged tweets with him. I've never met Steve in person, but he seems like a cool guy.

************************************************************

As a consultant and speaker on business growth, I have a more than passing interest in books such as "When Growth Stalls". As a matter of professional development, it is more or less required of me that I read them all - or at least as many as I find.

The sad truth is that apart from the usual suspects (Jim Collins, Michael Gerber et al...you know the genre), most books on business growth, while worthy and earnest, turn out to be one-note treatises that might best have remained case studies or (short) white papers or articles.

Not so Steve McKee's book. "When Growth Stalls" is an honest, detailed, actionable book. Every one of its 219 pages are worth reading, and every chapter has a clear, identifiable, relevant takeaway.

I admit I'm biased: I respect books written by people like Steve McKee who not only have advised other people on how to grow businesses, but who have had the guts to do it for themselves. Steve's deep personal experience shines through on every page (just glance at Chapter 9: "Take a Deep Breath" and you'll see that this book simply couldn't have been written by someone not personally deep in the trenches of business growth).

"When Growth Stalls" has a coherence, a sequence, a structure - a fully formed approach to re-igniting business growth that is applicable to any organization, of any size, in any industry.

So if you own a business, manage a business, or harbor thoughts of ever doing either, do yourself a favor - click that button and get yourself a copy of "When Growth Stalls".

Steve McKee has certainly done his homework in a volume that is a true treasure to any manager or executive pondering the business climate in our current economic situation. Having read a large number of leadership books in the last several months, I found this work to be truly the best of the best. The illustrations and examples are extremely effective. No matter what enterprise one is engaged in, for profit or non-profit, this book is a must read for the leader who has limited time to do their own research. A real jewel.

After four years of solid growth, we saw sales slow down back in August, 2007. To raise local awareness, we moved our store inside a major shopping mall. December was a blockbuster month, then sales fell off. We couldn't sell enough products to offset the extra expense of being in a mall, so we pulled out after 8 months. We cut expenses so we could survive, but I wasn't satisfied with just surviving. The growth phase is much more fun! By then, I was most anxious to read Steve McKee's book. He style is thoughtful, his information pertinent. It helped us focus on what really matters, and Steve deserves some of the credit for the strong comeback that Banjo.com is now enjoying.

Steve McKee does an excellent job laying out the key external and internal factors that impact and influence corporate and business growth. He provides a well thought-out working framework and assessment that you can apply to your own business. The book helped our executive team gain better internal alignment and agree on a narrower market focus. His assessment exercises also helped us to re-evaluate our overall positioning/messaging of our services. It is a very practical read-well grounded in primary research and case studies. If you need to re-kick start your sales growth- I would highly recommend this book.

Several other reviewers commented that the advice offered in this book works for any size business, and I have to agree. Even my tiny business had been beset by some of the problems that Steve writes about, most notably loss of nerve, loss of focus and marketing inconsistency. To be made aware of these issues, and to see them addressed in a book that offered help and encouragement, was most inspiring.
I found this book well-written and amazingly well-researched. It should be required reading for anyone who is in charge of a business, either to shine a light on problems existing already or to prevent them arising in the future.

This gave book gave great insight to the cycle of creativity and energy in business. Bosses will look at it as "an excuse for failure" but workers will see it as what really happens and how to combat it. Highly recommended, but keep it to yourself.
