One of the challenges Carter highlights is the lack of a frame of reference for growth across a broad set of leaders. Each comes to the table with a different perspective on growth.
It was this issue that drove me to research how companies achieved $1 billion revenue. I found the pattern to be exponential growth. It is near impossible to achieve this goal with any other kind of growth. The challenge for large corporations becomes the generation of new $1b businesses every year or so in order to move the needle of a $10b+ corporate business. This requires record level performance. Without a corporate venture funnel and a repetitive business building process, corporations struggle -- as Carter highlights.
