Building a Platform for Growth

HBS Working Knowledge has an article by Donald L. Laurie, Yves L. Doz, and Claude P. Sheer. From the editor’s note:

Researchers at Harvard Business School and INSEAD helped Boston-based consulting firm Oyster International study how executives of twenty-four successful companies achieved organic growth over time. The answer: by creating “new growth platforms, on which they could build families of products, services, and businesses and extend their capabilities into multiple new domains.” United Parcel Service is a prime example, as it expanded from a small-parcel delivery service into a variety of high-growth areas, including managing the flow of goods for customers.
