How should you grow your organization? Ita€™s one of the most challenging questions an executive team facesa€”and the wrong answer can break your firm. The problem is most firmsa€™ growth strategies emphasize just one type of growtha€”some focus on organic growth, others on MaA. When these strategies falter, the common response is simply to try hardera€”but firms falling into this a€œimplementation trapa€ usually end up losing out to a competitor whose approach is more inclusive. So where do you start? By asking the right questions, argue INSEADa€™s Laurence Capron and coauthor Will Mitchell, of the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto and Duke Universitya€™s Fuqua School of Business. Drawing on decades of research and teaching, Capron and Mitchell find that a firma€™s aptitude for determining the best resource pathways for growth has a defining impact on its success. Theya€™ve come up with a helpful framework, reflecting practices of a variety of successful global organizations, to determine which path is best for yours. The resource pathways framework is built around three strategic questions: a€c BUILD: Are your existing internal resources relevant for developing the new resources that you have targeted for growth? a€c BORROW: Could you obtain the targeted resources via an effective relationship with a resource partner? a€c BUY: Do you need broad and deep relationships with your resource provider? Written for large multinationals and emerging firms alike, Build, Borrow, or Buy will help solve a perennial question and will guide you through change while priming your organization for optimal growth.Written for large multinationals and emerging firms alike, Build, Borrow, or Buy will help solve a perennial question and will guide you through change while priming your organization for optimal growth.
