"Getting Bigger by Growing Smaller: A New Growth Model for Corporate America" by Joel M. Shulman
“It should not be surprising that few large companies were able to sustain long-term growth,” writes Joel Shulman, observing that “after about 50 to 60 years, most large, publicly traded companies either merge out of existence or gradually go out of business altogether.” Nevertheless, there’s a way to beat the odds and extend corporate life, asserts Shulman, who holds a chair on entrepreneurship at Babson College. His solution is the Strategic Entrepreneurial Unit (SEU), a model developed by Shulman and Thomas T. Stallkamp, the former president and vice-chairman of DaimlerChrysler, who contributed to the book. The model provides opportunities for entrepreneurs internal as well as external to a big company to partner with it for their mutual gain and for long-term growth.
