The Extraordinary Business Leaders Community
How we CREATE | DESIGN | BUILD
Every company is different and exists in different phases of development.
Not every company has the same starting point.
Not every company seeks the same endpoint.
But every company deserves to have a logical creative process to address their unique concerns that result in a sustainable solution for their company. Using a process to arrive at this solution ensures that we have a tried and tested methodology that ensures that we don’t leave any rock unturned, and is a basis for quality and improvement in every engagement.
The Business Lifecycle
Every business goes through phases – startup, growth, maturity, and decline – or Existence, Evolution and Emergence. As you can see from the diagram, each phase, businesses have different needs and priorities that need to be addressed.
Understanding where your business is in its lifecycle lets us work with you to create solutions that are appropriate for your company. The priorities of a 100 person firm are not the same as those for a single person virtual company.
Furthermore, a company in its startup phases are going to have different needs than those that are in more mature phases.
So your solutions that are recommended for your company will be those that can work for your company where you are to help you get where you are going.
