Company's "Growth is Human" short film recognized by The International Academy of Visual Arts to receive two Davey Awards in the Film/Video category.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Growth Strategy Company, the leading provider of cloud-based software, research insights and consulting services dedicated to business growth, today announced its short film entitled, "Growth is Human" has been selected by The International Academy of Visual Arts to receive two 2013 Davey Awards. The film chronicles the rise and fall of a Philadelphia area textile factory, Global Dye Works, and provides a fresh perspective of the complex strategic, social and economic factors related to business growth, failure, and the potential for renewal. Stories similar to Global Dye Works are being repeated in every American town and city.
With nearly 4,000 entries from across the US and around the world, the Davey Awards honors big ideas from the best small firms, agencies and companies worldwide. The Davey Awards is judged and overseen by the International Academy of the Visual Arts (IAVA), a 600+ member organization of leading professionals from various disciplines of the visual arts dedicated to embracing progress and the evolving nature of traditional and interactive media
"It's an honor to be recognized again for 'Growth is Human' as it presents a model example for why entire industries and individual companies need to innovate and take preemptive actions to achieve and sustain business growth," said Wayne Simmons, co-founder and CEO, The Growth Strategy Company. "Thinking about where future revenue and growth will come from is a critical issue for companies, yet it often takes a back seat to short-term priorities. Unfortunately, as we have seen with the demise of many household brands, this type of thinking can have devastating effects on shareholder value, employees and communities alike."
"The film continues to capture attention as it focuses attention on a 'human story' at the intersection of social impact, economic policy and business that is very real and relevant in today's business environment," said Keary Crawford, co-founder and COO, The Growth Strategy Company. "It captures the community and human impact that relates to globalization, global competition and strategy by posing two questions: 'Can business growth and renewal be more inevitable than decline and failure?' and 'How can the fate of Global Dye Works be avoided?'"
"Growth is Human," produced by The Growth Strategy Company, co-produced by Innovation Excellence and Innovation Enterprise Ltd. and directed by Pulse Cinema, earned two Silver Awards for Direct Marketing and Social Issues in the Film/Video category.
The film serves as a catalyst for Growth Thinking: Building the New Growth Enterprise, a book authored by Simmons and Crawford that helps large and mature companies adopt growth-focused characteristics and behaviors typified in Silicon Valley startups. The book and short film served the company as a platform for creating GrowthCloud®, the first-to-market enterprise software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform purpose-built to help companies grow through an information advantage.
