SUMMARY: There are predictable evolutions and revolutions of organizational growth. These are dictated by the complexity that comes with adding employees, customers, product lines, locations, etc. The barriers to scaling up and managing growth can be mitigated when businesses prioritize three things: an increased number of capable leaders, a scalable infrastructure, and the ability to navigate certain market dynamics.
SUMMARY: The key to success in most endeavors requires the right preparation, execution, and follow-through. In this bonus chapter accompanying Scaling Up (Rockefeller Habits 2.0), we share a dozen key steps to prepare the team for a quarterly or annual planning session; suggested agendas; and recommended follow-through after the offsite meetings. And at the back of this chapter is a sample completed One-Page Strategic Plan.
