Description

Foreword by Bill Gates

LinkedIn cofounder, legendary investor, and host of the award-winning Masters of Scale podcast reveals the secret to starting and scaling massively valuable companies.

What entrepreneur or founder doesn't aspire to build the next Amazon, Facebook, or Airbnb? Yet those who actually manage to do so are exceedingly rare. So what separates the start-ups that get disrupted and disappear from the ones who grow to become global giants? The secret is blitzscaling: a set of techniques for scaling up at a dizzying pace that blows competitors out of the water. 

The objective of blitzscaling is not to go from zero to one but from one to one billion as quickly as possible. When growing at a breakneck pace, getting to next level requires very different strategies from those that got you to where you are today. In a book inspired by their popular class at Stanford Business School, Hoffman and Yeh reveal how to navigate the necessary shifts and weather the unique challenges that arise at each stage of a company's life cycle, such as: how to design business models for igniting and sustaining relentless growth; strategies for hiring and managing; how the role of the founder and company culture must evolve as the business matures, and more.

Whether your business has 10 employees or 10,000, Blitzscaling is the essential playbook for winning in a world where speed is the only competitive advantage that matters.

Could go deeper

I don't feel that the cases explained in the book goes, deep enough, I have heard all Master of Scale, and I feel there's missing something.

Nothing new

I'm a big Reid Hoffman fan, which might be why I was a little disappointed his latest book Blitzscaling. This book truly fell short of the remarkable reputation Reid has for advising startup founders. I would heavily recommend saving your Audible credits if you are on the fence.

Not worth it

Honestly, I expected much more quality from a legend such as Reid Hoffman. It’s more a very long essay on why VC firms are right, rather than a real how to book for entrepreneurs. Much better to read the Lean Startup series by Eric Ries.

Rich information but NOT a guideline

Good information but definitely by far it’s not a guideline, too abstract in a actionable way.

Great Stories and Examples

Although the principle of Blitzscaling isn't for everyone - everyone in business should read this book. RH has "been there and done that" so many times in business that his experiences are always a must read. DR

Great book!

Great book, really gives you insight as to what blitzscaling is and how we see it all around us everyday. This book really has changed how I see business. Only thing I didn't like is how obviously liberal the author is painting Obama as some kind of saint who became President off of his use of social media and $5 donations..... Cmawn Reid, we know he was selected please do not insult the people by painting this man as someone innocent and for the people! Other than the few mentions of this the book was phenomenal!

An interesting way of looking at business

... and definitely worth the read. Reed Hoffman explains his thinking around why it can be crucial to prioritize speed over (short-term) economics and sometimes even customer service, in order to succeed in a globally competing world.

The book contains many nuggets of wisdom and research which I am glad to have been given references to, as well.

What I found a bit difficult is that Reid is trying to argue that monopolies are not necessarily suboptimal for society and that big companies will (hopefully) show great responsibility. While I believe that Reid is a good person and that probably most of his friends are good guys, as well, the world does contain people who put the well-being of others very low on the priority list and, many people, given enough power, will abuse it (see Milgram's experiments & the Stanford Prison Experiment). Peter Thiel explains in his book that you want a monopoly because competition is moving the profits from the company to the customer. So, while I absolutely see the potential value of Blitzscaling (in business and global welfare), there is, as I see it, quite a bit of danger for society in the approach. I agree with Reid, though, that ignoring it or trying to stop people in your own country from blitzscaling, is not the solution.

Great for anyone interested in the Silicon Valley fast pace industry

Great book. A way to understand Silicon Valley’s fast pace industry and rewarding culture. Whether you are a startup or an enterprise company, if you are looking to grow you company or project quickly, this is a great book. Also, has some wonderful lessons learned as they look back at past company successes and challenges.
