Thomson found that the world's fastest-growing companies invested in IT infrastructure, systems and services in order to enable consistent growth. Listen to this Podcast as he discusses the seven essentials steps for organizations to grow exponentially. In addition, you will also hear George Treisner of Endo Pharmaceuticals discuss how his high-growth company leveraged a flexible IT infrastructure to meet the scalability needs of their organization.
