Business Growth: Activities, Themes and Voices
Jönköping University, Jönköping International Business School, JIBS, EMM (Entrepreneurship, Marketing, Management). (Growth Project)
2007 (English)Book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Business growth is related to developmental growth, which in turn is connected to the dimension of learning. Developmental growth is exposed by and manifested in complex, interconnected human acticvities that reflect social practice in terms of encounters between people. Extending the process-oriented growth literature that focuses on linear explanation of development and change, the thrust of the argument is that growth is 'lived' and cannot be considered an 'object' that presides over the individual. The concept of business growth as 'lived' growth is explored via a musical metaphor. The fugue is used to capture the dynamics inherent in business growth, asserting itself in themes that constitute multifaceted, interwoven activities affording dynamically varying movements. Empirically, the book directs interest to a world of practice with reference to a business that started up in the early 1920s and about 80 years later was presented in the annual report as a corporation with global presence.
