Why Scaling Up can be so very hard to do

In her Scale Up report to the then Chancellor George Osborne, Sherry Coutu said “Competitive advantage doesn’t go to the nations that focus on creating companies, it goes to nations that focus on scaling companies".

Scale Up Coach Ian Kinnery explains some of the challenges.
