Past Workshop – Grow Your Business

Achieving success by understanding the Organisational Lifecycle.

At the foundation of effective management for any organisation is a fundamental truth that all organisations, like all living organisms, have a lifecycle and undergo very predictable and repetitive patterns of behaviour as they grow and develop.

At each new stage of development, an organisation is faced with a unique set of challenges. How well or poorly management addresses these challenges, and leads a healthy transition from one stage to the next, has a significant impact on the success or failure of their organisation.

Some problems are actually very good to have. They are only a problems if you don’t know how to identify and solve them proactively. We will share ideas on how to do this for your organisation, or those that you work with or invest in.

And why is it important to understand the lifecycle model? If you can predict what’s ahead, you can proactively start dealing with tomorrows challenges, today. You can be proactive and not waste time and energy being unaware and unprepared for what you know is around the corner.
