There are hidden laws at work in every aspect of your business. Understand them, and you can create extraordinary growth. Ignore them, and you run the risk of becoming another statistic. It’s become almost cliché: 8 out of every 10 new ventures fail. Of the ones that succeed, how many truly thrive—for the long run? And of those that thrive, how many continually overcome their growth hurdles … and ultimately scale, with meaning, purpose, and profitability? The answer, sadly, is not many. Author Lex Sisney is on a mission to change that picture. After more than a decade spent leading and coaching high-growth technology companies, Lex discovered that the companies that thrive do so in accordance with 6 Laws — universal principles that govern the success or failure of every individual, team, and organization.

Apr 26, 2013Tailored to expansion-stage entrepreneurs and executives (but useful for anyone), the book aims to provide a strategic and practical way to think about growing a business. In addition to the physics framework, the author shares his firsthand experience as former founder and CEO of a fast-growing technology company, as well as plenty of real-life entrepreneurial stories that make the theory aspects come to life. The book is divided into four sections with each section focused on a key aspect of growing a business. Part I is about a "universal success formula" that shows all all systems are subject to the law of entropy. Part II is about how all systems must adapt to the environment and how this requirement shows up in individual and team "styles." Part III is about choosing the right strategy. Part IV is about creating organizational momentum. My criticism of this book is that it lacks scientific research data to back up its claims. Unlike other books in this genre... More > like the Innovator's Dilema or Good to Great, the author hasn't revealed the data behind his theories. He just puts forward universal scientific principles and uses those as a metaphor to make his case. It would be a stronger book with more data-backed substance. Setting that aside, this is still a great book. After all, how much data do you really need to prove what is self-evident by observation? Even those who aren't CEOs and founders of technology companies can still get a lot out of it. Especially the focus on energy drains and gains and styles. This book changed the way I think about things and gave me a lot of clarity about what I should do next in my business.< Less
