Strategic Investment Decisions: Creating New Growth Pathways

(p.128) Chapter 8 Strategic Investment Decisions: Creating New Growth Pathways
Managing Corporate Growth

Jordi Canals

Oxford University Press

This chapter introduces the final building block in the story of corporate growth: the strategic investment decisions — that is, decisions that determine the company's future evolution and its growth. It is sometimes said that such decisions provide the explanation for a company's growth, which is true, but only in part. Another essential factor in explaining corporate growth is discussed in this chapter: the strategic decisions and, in particular, the investment decisions that commit the company's future course to a particular direction for a long period of time. Therefore, it is reasonable to conclude that a critical factor in managing corporate growth is the rigor with which the company chooses and appraises certain strategic decision — particularly, investment decisions — that may have a decisive impact on its future and performance.
