Successful executives exude magnetism, confidence, and vision. They consistently think steps ahead of everyone else in the organization, and inspire staff to act upon a dream of what the business can achieve.

The energy of its founder is enough to propel a small business forward. A fast growth small business, though, quickly becomes the victim of its own success.

An expanding mismatch between scale and organization can kill a good business. In fact, one in four high-growth businesses fail within six years. Successful leaders can avoid this fate by going slow, monitoring their dashboard of key indicators, and creating a roadmap for the future.

If you are a business leader looking for proven ways to better your growing company, this assessment is for you. The ten short questions that follow serve to evaluate your organization’s preparedness for the consequences of rapid growth.

Organizational Growth Assessment

Step 1 of 11 - Question 1

Go Slow to Grow Fast

"Genius is the ability to crystallize complicated concepts into simple action. Go Slow to Grow Fast delivers this in spades."

Professor Philip T. Powell, Associate Dean of Academic Programs, Daniel C. Smith Faculty Fellow, Indiana University Kelley School of Business

In his acclaimed book, Go Slow to Grow Fast, Tilson CEO and Author Brent R. Tilson brings to life the classic challenge that all business leaders face as they push their businesses through the conflict of growth and business capability, often referred to as the S-curve life cycle.

Through a fable drawn from his work with hundreds of businesses over twenty-five years of experience, Brent creates a case study that will take you, along with the characters Frank and Susan, on a journey of self-discovery.

The practical tools, methodologies, and advice are thought provoking yet simple. Brent’s innovative use of a business’s “Lifeline,” combined with his “Quad 4” methodology, helps leaders gain an understanding of how their business is performing today, and creates a road map for the future.
