The challenge: managing the complexity
your success has created.
Scaling a company impacts every aspect of your business. What served you
when you were just starting out doesn’t work now that you’re much larger.
You’re not alone. Many growth-stage companies struggle to grow beyond a
certain point; in fact, 50% of growth-stage companies don’t survive past year 5.
They find that to sustain their growth, a combination of new approaches, new
talent, new capabilities, and revised structures are needed - and all at the same time.
You likely have already made multiple efforts to move your growth agenda forward, but are hitting roadblocks along the way or are just feeling overwhelmed with all the demands on your attention to meet your growth intentions.
How we work with you
Sustainable growth demands adaptation, and changes have to be made quickly to keep growth momentum on track. Adaptation must also be done thoughtfully. Rapid growth companies can’t afford missteps which are costly in time, talent and money.
We guide you through your strategic growth transformation in 8 powerful ways:
1. Determine and prioritize strategic growth initiatives … sequencing, milestones, accountabilities, and resources needed
2. Clarify current roles and accountabilities across the organization to enable effective decision making and communication
3. Fill key talent gaps through our network of functional experts and interim execs – Sales, Marketing, HR, Supply Chain, IT, etc.
4. Upgrade and refine key operational processes to achieve the levels of productivity that support ambitious growth targets
5. Build team engagement and depth by ensuring strategic values are underpinned by a resilient and aligned culture
6. Upgrade business development effectiveness, and improve sales and forecasting management
7. Develop pragmatic executive dashboards with actionable Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to support implementation of growth initiatives
8. Structure governance and finance to create value-maximizing exit strategy options
Let's get started
Monthly Thought Partnership Calls – An objective, expert perspective can be invaluable to test ideas, share concerns, and make meaningful progress. Personal and confidential series of calls set to your agenda clarify the issues, process, and direction of your organization's growth intentions.
Strategic Growth Assessment & Growth Plan – What are the most significant obstacles to sustainable growth in your company? What’s working well and is a strength you can leverage? We identify the critical operational, organizational, and leadership issues that are hindering your company’s growth. Based on the assessment, we co-create a growth agenda with the strategic initiatives, timelines, milestones, metrics, resources (talent and capital), and accountabilities you need to move to a sustainable growth position.
Strategic Growth Delivery & Support – We roll up our sleeves to help you execute the growth plan. Side-by-side with you and your team, we get things done and coordinate all the activities and talent acquisition – interim or full time – that your growth game plan requires.
Team Training Workshops – We design and facilitate customized on-site workshops for you and your team to explore a specific set of issues - root causes, potential solutions, and the information necessary to make informed decisions. Workshops are focused on developing tangible and pragmatic action plans.
