Elephants Can Dance
Growth Through Leadership & Governance
Many industry-leading corporations grow systematically slower than they should – underperforming their sector’s growth and being outperformed by smaller, more nimble competitors.
Scaling up companies too often results in slower top line growth. However, more than 25 years of OC&C experience has demonstrated that this is not an inevitable consequence of size; there are clear lessons to be drawn from management teams who have led their companies to sustained growth. We believe elephants can continue to dance. Focusing on the leadership and governance structures of these successful companies highlights many examples where leadership decisions and governance processes have driven growth and allowed companies to flourish at all stages of development. CEOs need to lead to succeed.
