Julian Birkinshaw, London Business School

Professor and Deputy Dean

The reason why companies struggle in game-changing innovations isn’t a lack of good ideas. It is failure to scale-up effectively.
This book provides a detailed playbook to help executives crack this challenge. If you are looking for practical advice on scaling up from someone who has done it many times, this is the book for you.

Hilton Barbour, Kognitiv Corporation

Vice President Marketing

In Frank Mattes’ excellent book “Lean Scaleup” he tackles one of the toughest – but most critical – challenges for the modern Enterprise – scaling up inside existing organizations. His “red shirt & blue shirt” construct is an important and useful thread through the book. If you’re looking for a clear and concise guide on building powerful (and lean) scale-ups, you need to grab a copy of “Lean Scaleup”.

David Gilmour, bp Launchpad

Frank Mattes has decades of valuable experience in innovation and business building. He has distilled the key practices that companies need to embrace. In this time, with the challenges of disruption, the rapid evolution of business models, and the need to re-define the ways business works, the Lean Scaleup provides a route map. It’s an approach built through practice in the field and results from real work supporting companies facing existential challenges that the market has brought forward.
