Finding a successful and repeatable formula for growth is something every corporate board wants. Unfortunately, this formula does not exist but it’s fundamental pursuing organic growth.
Although restructuring the organization is not easy, these efforts are straightforward; the desired end state is clear, and the pathway to implementation can be laid out with confidence. Naturally, many things may go wrong, but these can be managed through traditional project management techniques. These efforts are execution challenges.
The keys to growth successfully are three:
- Articulate crisp, inspiring outcomes – Drive clarity on the current and desired future state.
- Use urgent, results-focused learning efforts – Short-term projects that deliver meaningful gains against important business outcomes such as revenue, market share, new customers, etc. enable fast discovery of viable solutions and accelerate ROI on growth initiatives.
- Sustain & Scale Success – Employ change management tools and techniques that drive engagement and enable rapid scale up of successes.
Effective communications campaigns that build awareness and buy-in for the effort are also an important element of a high-performing growth program.
The three keys to success outlined above will help any organization achieve its ambitions quickly and effectively.
