A growing business
time for a new level of maturity
Rod has started a business and is being rewarded with success. He has ambitions for further growth, but has hit a point where the heady early days no longer fit and the organisation needs firm foundations - plans, structures, processes and systems. He manages to keep the plates spinning - just - but the current status cannot be sustained...
Find out if I’m like Rod
Tick all that apply:
The original goal of launching the business now needs a delivery and commercial focus... and a complete culture change
People are looking for a long term plan, you have a sense in your head but it’s hardly a strategy
Reliance on a few key clients needs to expand to a broader market presence
The original innovators and specialists now need to become leaders and managers - but resent being pulled away from their area of expertise and passion
There is a need for rapid growth of skills and staff, everybody was doing everything but now need focus and clarity of roles
Notebooks, spreadsheets and a few free bits of software are no longer fit for purpose to keep operations under control
Risks are real and unmanaged e.g. IP, cyber security, cash flow, resourcing
Cash is feast to famine, with unknown burn rate & runway
The day to day includes micromanaging, firefighting and blockages
Change must come, but the org is unprepared...
If you ticked more than 5 of these you are a Rod and we can help you!
