Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The entrepreneurs who need this book are already successful, experiencing spectacular growth. Of limited use to small business owners, Flamholtz's principles are more helpful for major firms trying to analyze potential or actual problems. Flamholtz's style is erudite, almost textbookish in tone, but he makes a genuine contribution to management literature. He offers a unified prescription for management, integrating ideas on topics ranging from product life cycle to leadership styles to organizational structure. He contrasts and explains entrepreneurial and professional management styles, explaining which is needed when, and why the use of the wrong style has led to the demise of some very large firms. Paul Hawken's Growing a Business (S. & S., 1987) is more popular in approach with more nitty-gritty advice for small businesses. Flamholtz is recommended for management collections.-- Sue McKimm, Cuya hoga Cty. P.L., Cleveland

    An Essential Guide for Start-Up and Second Stage Firms

    I got this book as part a class on Human Resource management taught by Eric Flamholtz while I was at UCLA. I have used it extensively over the years to calibrate companies I have worked with and competed against. I have recommended this book I forget how many times now to fellow CEO's and Directors struggling to understand the changes going on around them. Eric's stages of growth accurately frame the factors one needs to take into account as people's lives, executive and worker alike, are affected by changes in their work environment. One can quickly find where one's particular situation is and use the information in this book to regain one's composure and perspective. Things change particularly quickly in young firms where business factors force the upheaval of culture at a numbing pace. This is a book that helps make it tolerable to embrace change. - Thanks Eric.
