High Growth Is Synonymous With Compromise!! ─ Law #30

Growth requires stretching the system beyond its capabilities and old procedures. Existing methods become cumbersome, therefore the new dynamics demand compromises. If you can’t accommodate compromise with your management style, stay away from high growth.

When high growth resources are strained, there isn’t time do everything as thoroughly and with the same detail as in the past. This tends to depress some people.

With high rates of growth, things will never be the same. In a high growth situation, the president will be operating a bigger company than he managed just the day before.
