The Growth Pitstop™ is a 9-year project which has spanned 47 countries and 12 industries. It has involved hundreds of workshops – or what we call pitstops – on the topic of growth. These have been attended by managers from organizations, such as; IBM, BT, 3M and Medtronic to name just a few.

The meta-model at the core of this book is built upon a complex algorithm and 248 mathematical variables that are highly predictive of growth performance and potential. The benchmarking data presented in the various chapters is based on a sample of 2750 managers and over 320,000 pieces of performance data gathered across 12 industries:
• IT software, hardware and cloud computing
• Banking and Financial Services
• Telecommunications
• Professional Services
• Medical Devices
• Chemicals & Pharmaceuticals
• Retail
• Food & Catering
• Distribution & Transport
• Education & Training
• Non-Profit
• Government & Public Sector

The research behind the Growth Pitstop™ also includes over 600 academic and other references cited in this series of books, in particular the output of the leading consulting houses (McKinsey, Accenture, BCG, Deloitte and PWC) and leading academic institutions (Harvard, Stanford, Columbia and so on). It also integrates the latest in the areas of predictive growth analytics and growth psychology.

The research behind the Growth Pitstop™ is presented in a series of 4 books.
