Top Line Growth? There’s an App for That – Robert Plant – Harvard Business Review


Top Line Growth? There’s an App for That – Robert Plant – Harvard Business Review.

Reading this HBR Blog by Dr. Robert Plant (one of my MBA professors) reiterates the question posted in my earlier post (Jobs! Jobs! Jobs!) where I ask if small and medium sized business owners are doing all they can to improve their business success and thus maintaining jobs (A National Priority!).

Are the vast majority of business owners in reaction mode or would you say they are in proactive mode? Proactivity to me indicates some level of innovation (product, service, technology etc) leading to increased margins. Reaction means they are not looking at the horizon for the opportunities and complaining the margins on the current revenue streams are decreasing too low.

Without this very important segment of the economy functioning in a healthy mode, the unemployment picture will remain murky. There may not be an easy solution such as an app to use to ameliorate the issue, it will require figuring a way to solve small and medium sized business problems to be solved one at a time.
