"The simultaneous pursuit of growth and profitability is one of the most exquisite-and difficult-leadership dilemmas. Bala Chakravarthy and Peter Lorange provide penetrating insights and persuasive real-life examples on how a company can address this dilemma through continuous renewal and internal entrepreneurship. Unusual for books on leadership, their discussion spans from theory through practical implementation."

-Nick Shreiber, Former President & CEO, Tetra Pak Group
