Scaling Up And Loving It! By Prof Costas Andriopoulos (Professor of Entrepreneurship and Innovation, Cass Business School) & Glen Duncan (Global Operations Director, Unruly)  

Scaling a business can seem hugely daunting, and there is a widespread feeling that it has to be grounded in science and numbers. Fact is, it’s the stuff you do beyond the science and numbers that will move your business to the next level.

In this interactive, hands-on session, drawing on insights from latest business research findings and brief successful examples, the audience will be guided through a journey leading to the ability to grow their business and sustain it.

We will cover the mindset required throughout the evolution of a company, demystifying business growth, and delve deeper on the qualities that consistent, high performance companies have.

Costas Andriopoulos is a Professor of Innovation and Entrepreneurship at Cass Business School. His main research interests focus on how organizational paradoxes enable innovation in the face of changing technological environments. In particular, he studies how entrepreneurial firms in high-velocity markets can excel at both incremental (exploiting current capabilities) and discontinuous innovation (exploring into new space). Costas' articles have appeared in leading journals, such as California Management Review, Organization Science, Human Relations, Long Range Planning, International Small Business Journal, among others. He has also authored Managing Change, Creativity and Innovation (2014, Sage Publications), which is now in its second edition.

Glen Duncan is Global Operations Director at Unruly. Glen has over 10 years of operational experience in digital media. He has successfully built and run domestic and international delivery teams at Virgin Media and the Financial Times, having got his first taste of operational logistics working at The Guardian in 2003.
