There are predictable evolution and revolutions as an organization grows.
These are dictated by the increasing complexity that comes with adding employees,customers,product lines,the locations,etc.
Handling a company’s growth successfully requires three things;
a) An increasing number of capable leaders.
b) A Scalable Infrastructure
c) The ability to navigate certain market dynamics.
If these factors are missing,you will face barriers to growth.Scaling up successfully requires leaders who possess aptitudes for prediction,delegation and repetition.
“I am tired of scaling my little boat Far inside of the harbor bar;
I want to be out where the big ships float-
Out on the deep where the Great Ones are!…
And should my frail craft prove too slight
For the storms that sweep those wide seas o”er,
Better go down in the stirring fight
Than drowse to death by the sheltered shore!”
