Course Description

This one hour TECHcast is for everyone who wants their business to grow. Few appreciate how dangerous growth can be. Growing a business to solve problems is like buying a mansion to deal with a messy house: the result is a bigger mess. Many businesses fail when they’re unable to efficiently scale to meet increased demand. More revenues can actually mean less profit, alienated customers, crises, and even bankruptcy. So what does smart growth look like? Although many think that growth is all about increasing top line revenue, the data says it’s actually about creating the conditions inside the business to support and sustain growth. In this webinar you’ll learn how to solve the growth paradox and grow the smart way.
