This course focuses in detail at a critical challenge facing all successful entrepreneurial small- or medium-size firms: how to sustain and accelerate major growth. At some point in the life of all growing enterprises, a firm usually must change. This course introduces ways a growing firm can transform itself from a small to a larger enterprise. It explores how such companies can maintain the benefits of an entrepreneurial commitment and spirit while still obtaining needed skills associated with professionally managed larger firms.
