ELI5: Why must businesses constantly grow? Why can't they just self-sustain? : explainlikeimfive
Harvard MBA checking in. 

The answer depends on many factors. Except for scale, most don't make business sense.

Public Companies:‎ share price is a function of current cash flows, risk, and expected growth. Executive compensation is often tied to share price; thus, management strives to meet growth expectations. This, of course, doesn't make sense unless the growth is profitable, and often it's not.

Size: for many businesses, scale creates efficiency. You spread your overhead costs (management, real estate, etc.) ‎over more units of output, so your margin increases. In highly competitive markets, this cost spreading is necessary because your competitors will use this lower cost per unit to drop price and steal your market share.

Strategic direction: Often, this is code for bad management. Managers will grow their business because sustaining a business is boring.‎ Other times, managers will diversify their business to reduce risk. If you're a private company, this makes sense. As a public company, this makes no sense. If you are selling waffles but are worried about the Atkins diet, a non-saavy owner might diversify into eggs; but as an investor, I would rather you stick to waffles and do it well --- I can put 50 percent of my money in your waffle company, and the other 50 percent in an egg company and see the same risk diversification, but still have management focused on what they're good at.

Also, to comment on previous posts, adaptation is not the same as growth.
