Currently, the company I’m working for has been going through the turbulent space between start-up and scale-up. Discovering the video of Les’s Do Lecture: How to be a Predictable Success led me to his book. Les has a great way of explaining transition and what is required to be part of a great scale-up. Although aimed at leadership, this book should be read by all staff whose company is in the ‘white waters’ of transition. It really helps to understand the growing pains and highlight the issues to look out for. At just over 100 pages, it’s a fairly quick read, even for me.
