Is it Time to Scale Your Business? Wharton Professor Gad Allon on Navigating Scale and Profit

Gad Allon, Wharton Professor of Operations, Information, and Decisions, joins host Dan Loney on Wharton Business Daily to discuss the relationship between a company’s scale and its profit. After observing the success of tech giants like Amazon, many now perceive a direct correlation between a larger scale and increased profit. In this interview, Allon explores the concealed risks of scaling, such as the challenges of maintaining employee culture and satisfaction, as well as the advantages of staying small.

Gad Allon is the Academic Director of the Wharton Executive Education Scaling Business for Profitable Growth program running November 12-16th at Wharton’s San Francisco campus.

Wharton Business Daily airs Monday-Friday from 10 AM – 12 PM ET on SiriusXM Channel 132, featuring emerging trends, top business leaders & Wharton’s renowned professors. Learn more:
