High performance: the business of jumping S-curves -- CLIMBING A CURVE : A big enough market insight -- Threshold competence before scaling -- Worthy of serious talent -- JUMPING TO A NEW CURVE : Hidden S-curves -- Edge-centric strategy -- Top teams that change ahead of the curve -- Hothouse of talent -- Sharp curves ahead -- Appendix: how we determined high performance
Discusses how high-performing companies jump the hidden S-curves - competition, capabilities and talent - in their business to avoid the growth stall that is common after a period of rapid growth. By doing this, the authors argue, companies can successfully jump from the top of one peaking business to the bottom of another in time to avoid a stall and continue their success with a new business.
