One of the biggest, says the CEO of the world’s largest biotech company, is learning to juggle them all at once. 76 THE IDEA Funding Growth in an Age of Austerity Gary Hamel and Gary Getz Solid, enduring corporate growth springs from innovations, not acquisitions. But that doesn’t mean R&D spending has to go through the roof. Here are five proven ways to innovate on the cheap. 86 T H E S T R AT E G Y 108 Darwin and the Demon: Innovating Within Established Enterprises 94 76 THE DEAL When to Ally and When to Acquire Geoffrey A. Moore Jeffrey H. Dyer, Prashant Kale, and Harbir Singh Innovate or become extinct. But choose the form of innovation carefully – different phases of a market’s life favor different types. Avoid dismal results from acquisitions and alliances by systematically comparing the two strategies before you make a deal. Here’s a framework for determining the best option for achieving your growth objectives. THE MARKET 116 Selling to the Moneyed Masses THE CUSTOMER Paul F. Nunes, Brian A. Johnson, and R. Timothy S. Breene Getting the Most out of All Your Customers The top 20% of earners in the United States account for 49% of total income, yet they make up only 37% of the country’s total spending. That spells opportunity. Marketers should be looking for ways to reach the new affluent masses. Loyal customers don’t produce stable, healthy growth. Profitable ones do. A new analytical tool can tell you how many marketing dollars you really need to spend (and just what to spend them on) to find those customers – all of them. Jacquelyn S. Thomas, Werner Reinartz, and V. Kumar 124 THE DILEMMA Kenneth W. Freeman, George Nolen, John Tyson, Kenneth D.

UPS-SCS.com 1-866-822-5336 FROM THE EDITOR Growing at a Smar t Pace ou are holding a special double issue of Harvard Business Review. It is a collection of the best thinking we could find on a topic that is paramount in executive offices: growing the top line. How important is it? A few months ago, the Harvard Business School campus was flooded with 250 top executives from one of the bluest of blue-chip companies. The entire senior team came for a week, including the CEO for most of the time. They studied one subject: topline growth. Consider this issue of HBR the next best thing: a comprehensive look at the sources of sales growth; the strategies that produce it; the means of ensuring that it is profitable; and – crucially – the role of leaders in promoting and sustaining it. Senior editors Julia Kirby, Anand Raman, and Bronwyn Fryer planned this issue to be thorough, first – to cover the topics you would expect to see, from innovation to marketing to mergers. But they also wanted it to surprise – to shine new light on familiar subjects and to discover original ideas in unexpected places. I hope you’ll agree that they succeeded brilliantly. It seems almost arbitrary to pick just a few items from this jewelry box, but here are some things I learned (and a couple that I relearned) as the articles came across my desk: • I knew that innovation is more than new product development. There’s innovation in marketing, in business models, in processes, and more. But till I read Geoffrey Moore’s “Darwin and the Demon,” I hadn’t realized that where a product is in its life cycle determines which kind of innovation will do the most good. We’ve long wanted to publish Geoff – the author of Crossing the Chasm, among other books – and it is a pleasure to welcome him. • I knew most companies make a hash of both acquisitions and alliances. But I hadn’t figured out that often the problem is that companies take over firms they should have collaborated with, and vice versa. Brigham Young’s Jeff Dyer, Michigan’s Prashant Kale, and Wharton’s Harbir Singh (the latter two also new to HBR) show how companies can avoid a lot of grief by understanding how to choose between allying and acquiring. 10 • I’d read much about income distribution. But in “Selling to the Moneyed Masses,” Paul Nunes and Tim Breene, both from Accenture, and researcher Brian Johnson surprised me with data that ought to make every company reexamine its customers: While your marketing people targeted ever-narrower customer segments, a new mass market was forming – a forest of prosperous customers you may have missed from looking too closely at the trees. • And I knew that CEOs have a special perspective because of their responsibility for allocating capital within the companies they lead. But this issue includes the voices of six chief executives – an interview with Amgen’s Kevin Sharer, and thoughtful essays by five others, with a commentary by the Kellogg School’s Ranjay Gulati. The top line looks different from the top. You can’t explain that difference – but you can experience it, and you do in these articles. A final note: One of HBR’s greatest strengths – which our authors know but which is almost invisible to readers – is our cadre of manuscript editors. Most magazines have staffs of copy editors, who correct grammar and spelling, fix inconsistencies, and apply a final polish to prose and style. HBR’s manuscript editors – Christina Bortz, Lisa Burrell, Roberta Fusaro, Margaret Hanshaw, Andy O’Connell, and Andrea Ovans – do that and more. They become partners with the authors and senior editors. Sometimes they find subtle errors of logic or design; often they take charge of making charts and exhibits clear and useful; always, and almost magically, they turn knotty passages into straightforward, even elegant prose. And they do it on deadline. This double issue, with 14 full-length articles, put huge demands on the manuscript editors, who met the challenge heroically. You wouldn’t be reading it without them.

F o r e t h o u g h t thinking about… What Every CEO Should Know About Creating New Businesses Decades of research agrees – growth ultimately means starting new businesses. That’s not easy, more for cultural than economic reasons. by David A. Garvin “Some problems,” wrote Laurence J. Peter, the business humorist, “are so complex that you have to be highly intelligent and well informed just to be undecided about them.” Top-line growth is one of those, especially when it comes to creating new businesses within large, complex companies. The challenges are vast, and it’s difficult to know how, or even whether, to move forward. Most CEOs would benefit from having a few rules of the road. Fortunately, scholars have studied the problem for decades. And whether they’ve called it “new business creation,”“corporate venturing,” “corporate entrepreneurship,” “corporate innovation,” or “intrapreneuring,” their observations have been remarkably similar. Yet these findings have seldom been summarized or presented in an easily accessible form. Here, then, is a primer on the topic–the ten things every corporate venturer should know. 1 | Ultimately, growth means starting new businesses. Most firms have no alternative. Sectors decline, as they did for Pullman’s railroad cars and Singer’s sewing machines. Technology renders products and services obsolete – the fate Polaroid suffered, as digital cameras decimated its instant photography franchise. Markets saturate, as Home Depot is now finding, after establishing more than a thousand stores nationwide. may be necessary for long-term growth, but successes are hard to pull off. The numbers are downright depressing. In the 1970s and 1980s, 60% of small-business start-ups failed in their first six years. Large companies did only a bit better. A study of sizable corporations during the same period, which included such household names as DuPont, Exxon, IBM, Procter & Gamble, Sara Lee, 3M, and Xerox, found that they divested or closed 44% of their internally generated start-ups and 50% of their joint ventures in the first six years. 18 harvard business review PATRICK BLACKWELL/WORKBOOKSTOCK 2 | Most new businesses fail.
