Growing with Intention
The 7 Stages of Growth were developed by James Fischer. The Stages of Growth are based on a 6 year study of over 650 companies to understand and decipher the patterns, the behavior and the characteristics of growth in entrepreneurial enterprises.
What if you could discover and remove the hidden barriers to your company’s health and financial performance?
Many business leaders simply don’t have the time or expertise to look deeper into the causes beneath the tidal wave of issues confronting them everyday. Constantly putting out fires distracts them from identifying the hidden forces that cause many of their company’s problems.
By understanding what Stage of GrowthTM your company is in, you can PREDICT when the level of unaddressed complexity will become problematic. If you ignore it, you will start to see revenues and margins erode, productivity fall and customer service issues crop up all around you.
By understanding the complexity level of your company, you can FOCUS on:
- The right people issues
- The right revenue and profit initiatives
- The right business processes that are critical to your company’s health today, and in the next Stage of GrowthTM.
