"As companies grow, they become larger organizations. Complexity increases. And this complexity stifles their growth," said Chris Zook, the former co-head of Bain & Company's Global Strategy practice and author of The Founder's Mentality, in his email interview with Economy Chosun. "This is called the 'paradox of growth.' You have managed to grow and achieve economies of scale, but the scale becomes a killer of future growth. The 'founder's mentality' is needed to overcome such a crisis."
