Rather, it's a result of key business characteristics that set the top 9% of middle market companies well apart from their peers.
This upper echelon of companies, or Growth Champions, follows a clear blueprint for growth. Key strategies are based on a group of distinguishing characteristics, including strong management culture, exceptional talent management, sharp customer focus, broad geographic vision, and innovation.
Take a closer look at these capabilities and how they enable exceptional growth for the Growth Champions of the middle market.
