MANAGE your Growth

Grow Bigger and Better

Approach

 

Lee worked in organizations that were hiring 1,000 new employees per month for a year straight and others who had grown 100% for five straight years, so he learned first-hand how to effectively manage rapid growth. From working in and consulting with high-growth organizations for 25+ years, he developed the Top 10 Risk Factors for Growing Companies. These risk factors are not inherently bad for your business; the key is proactively managing them. They are all interrelated as with any complex system, like your business. We help you manage these predictable growth-related risks to build a scalable organization with sustainable profitability.

The 10 Risk Factors are not inherently bad for your business; the key is proactively managing them. They are all interrelated as with any complex system, such as your company.

 

Top 10 Risk Factors for Growing Companies

 

  1. Betting against the law. (legally required activities on the back burner)
  2. Operational infrastructure is underdeveloped.  
  3. Product and service quality are declining. (customer needs are obscured by growth needs)
  4. Inability to quickly capture key data.  
  5. The "diligence" in due diligence is missing. (hasty acquisitions cause organizational indigestion)
  6. Planning horizon is too short. ("images in the mirror are closer than they appear")
  7. Loyalty to employees who "got us here".  
  8. Organizational focus is blurred.
  9. Management practices or capabilities fit yesterday's requirements. 
  10. Sense of invincibility. (Titanic syndrome)
