International Journal of Business Excellence (IJBEX), Vol. 5, No. 1/2, 2012

Abstract: As the opportunities for mergers and acquisitions are finite, the principal way that a firm can expand is through organic growth. This paper has a comprehensive discussion on the subject of organic growth by taking a taxonomic approach. It first classifies the different routes to growth, followed by a categorisation of the various factors that could inhibit it. The paper concludes with a brief discussion of the importance of the interaction of historical antecedents and the ability to exploit existing opportunities.
