Driving profitable corporate growth presents challenges even during times of economic prosperity. This is particularly true for companies that have already experienced market success. In fact, as Warren Buffett has said repeatedly, the bigger the base of dollar sales, the harder it is to grow meaningfully without deviating from the original value proposition.
