In 2003, key executives of Dewberry Capital, a fast-growing, Atlanta-based real estate company, are evaluating their growth strategy and the resultant organizational issues. John Dewberry, the entrepreneurial founder of the firm, has developed a portfolio of neighborhood shopping centers, apartments, and in midtown Atlanta, a 160,000-square-foot office building. He would like to start a second adjacent, 300,000-square-foot office building, but worries about a weak market. Already new hires have been added to the team. The question is what other people should be added, when, and at what compensation level.
