Blueprint 4 Growth features “timely & timeless” ideas and best practices of high-performance growth firms focused on building the “practice of the future.” 

One of the central organizing principles is to ensure “Best Fit” when considering growth through creating strategic alliances or mergers/acquisitions. In today’s over-heated merger and acquisition marketplace few buyers and sellers look beyond the numbers to ensure the right foundational principles are put in place.

By focusing first on the key drivers of “Best Fit” such as culture, talent development and scale; the growth horizon of the practice benefits dramatically.
