Growth is a good thing! But as businesses grow, they often evolve into a complex organization that takes on a life of its own. Growth brings challenges like these:
- The PEOPLE challenge – Now that I have some volume, how do I hire the right people, bring them up to speed, make sure everybody is productive, and make them clear about what they are supposed to do? Worse yet, someone leaves and they were the only one who knew how to do a key procedure, nothing is written down. In Good to Great, Jim Collins writes about “Those who build great organizations make sure they have the right people on the bus and the right people in the key seats before they figure out where to drive the bus.”
- The PURPOSE challenge – When I started my business I was just trying to survive. Now that it’s rolling, it is taking on a life of its own and I’m not sure if I’m in control anymore.
- The PLAYBOOK challenge – There’s so much going on now that I can’t keep track of everything, nothing is documented and it seems like the same problems keep happening over and over.
- The PERFORMANCE challenge – We’ve hit a wall and can’t seem to grow any more. We have great ideas but it never seems to get off the ground.
