Andrew's book

Scaling for Success: People Priorities for High-Growth Organizations

This book is the definitive guide for leaders of high-growth organizations seeking to understand and execute the people management principles that are essential to continued success.

Combining a wealth of practical experience, well-grounded academic research, and easy-to-apply frameworks, Andrew Bartlow and T. Brad Harris offer a practical toolkit that founders, functional leaders, and managers of people can use to rethink their practices to meet their organizations’ needs.

They help readers identify the core people management programs and practices that are best for an organization at its current stage and size while also supporting a foundation for continued development and the capacity to adapt to inevitable surprises.

Practical, actionable, and supplemented with numerous diagnostic tools and illustrative examples, Scaling for Success is a must-have playbook for organizational leaders pursuing smart and sustainable growth.


What Your Audience Could Learn

Topic #1

How Can HR Be More Strategic?

HR professionals strive to “have a seat at the table” and work endless hours trying to satisfy the many demands of their organizations, while continuing to receive the feedback that they need to “be more strategic”. We see HR leaders continue to burn out and drop out of the field, frustrated that they don’t seem to be getting the respect they deserve. Why is this happening? What does “being more strategic” really mean and how do you do it? It’s about what you choose to work on, and how closely that links to the priorities and interests of your key stakeholders. 

Andrew would love to educate an audience of HR professionals about what they can do to be more successful, often while doing less over fewer working hours. He can share real case studies and examples from his experience leading multiple HR functions and mentoring dozens of HR leaders. 

Topic #2

One Size Doesn't Fit All: The best practice Doesn't Exist

Many companies look up to organizations that are famous for their inspiring company culture – Google, Airbnb, or Zappos just to name a few. These tech icons are a great source of inspiration but their strategies usually don’t work for smaller companies. That’s where many companies, founders, and HR leaders go wrong. They don’t have the right environment to model Google-like strategies; therefore, those strategies won’t work in their context.

Andrew can talk about how he has helped venture capital and growth equity-backed high growth companies to apply critical thinking to determine the best management practices for their organizations.

Topic #3

What Is The Right Rate To Pay Your Employees?

The war for talent is more competitive than ever before. How do you determine the “market rate” for workers, attracting and retaining a team without burning more cash than necessary? Most organizations just guess, or use a limited set of data points. Others ask their HR leaders to benchmark compensation. However, many HR professionals don’t have expertise in this area, and may not even know where to get started. 

Andrew can help your audience develop a compensation philosophy, understand pay transparency tradeoffs, and accelerate their efforts in this critical area to support your business.

Topic #4
