Organic Business Growth
Organic business growth is growth derived from selling more of your products ¦ services than the previous period under consideration. Some people call this “natural growth” or “internal business growth” as opposed to other types of growth, such as:
Strategic Business GrowthPartnership/Merger/Acquisition
Generally business growth is broken down into what are called “The 4 Stages Of Business Growth”
Startup is pretty self explanatory…a startup is usually a new or small company but some companies never really make it out of the startup phase in culture or approach.
Growth also known as Scale Up or Scale Out. This is usually the most difficult stage of a company’s growth to navigate. During the startup phase a lot is accomplished by heroically working longer or harder but to scale a company during the scale out phase new Ways of Working have to be introduced.
Many mistakes can be made when introducing new WoW during Scale Out…
The new WoW aren’t actually new enough so the key players in the startup phase just get increasingly overloaded and start to constrain and then eventually stop company growth.
The WoW are set up so the key players in the startup phase set themselves up as Single Points Of Failure in that everything must be agreed or signed-off by them personally. This is very inefficient and dis-empowering for the other people in the company who eventually become demotivated and leave the company forcing the WoW back to the “good old days” of the startup…
The new WoW are too “big company” or bureaucratic which tends to be very ineffective and counter-cultural for the startup.
One way of successfully navigating the scale out stage is to bring in Interim talent from GRO.TEAM who have been there and done it for a number of companies at this stage.
All new processes introduced at this stage of the company’s life need to be just good enough to make things more predictable and repeatable with becoming part of the problem.
The acid test of new processes or procedures is “has it made things better overall?”…if not it needs to be revisited…
Maturity ¦ Decline again pretty self explanatory with decline being characterised as three quarters of negative profit “growth”.
Decline has to be addressed quickly to avoid the company going into a “death spiral” of lower confidence –> lower effort –> lower sales –> lower confidence and so on…
If you’re in this situation contact GRO.TEAM NOW…we have turned this situation around a number of times by improving the company’s Culture, Marketing, Product <–> Market fit, or all of these things…
Renewal the stage characterised as having successfully reversed a decline. It’s not easy to pull out of a decline but it can be done…
Can't recommend gro.team enough. Very professional and modern approach to the problem of business and team building in very difficult times. Rorie's perfect combination of experience and skills allowed us to unlock the full potential.
Having worked with the team across various projects and assignments, it's always reassuring to know that the results are alway going to be delivered. Loana is great to work with, ensuring that the the projects are always given the right candidates to ensure success.
Every now and again, if you’re lucky, you will come across a business that delights you. This is what you’ll find with Rorie and the team. Excellent in their chosen fields, easy to engage with and genuinely excited about getting you the result you desire.
We used GRO.TEAM to iron out internal issues with CTOs, they also helped us to revise our way of working and helped us with a very successful growth hacking campaign.
They took us through a full consultation assessing what was and wasn't working internally - they also helped with internal mentoring for some of our staff.
Overall - exceptionally good service and a fantastic business to work with.
Focussed, sharp, incisive bunch of people - breath of fresh air . Be prepared to be challenged - supportively.
Everything about gro.team is extremely well run - and Rorie is abosutely top flight. He knows his onions !!
Rorie & Loana @ GRO.TEAM are extremely friendly, professional and effective. They take pride in ensuring that candidates are ideal for the roles which is a win-win for both sides. Highly recommended!
Love the interaction with Rorie, Loana, and the team. Committed, professional, yet fun and engaging! the perfect blend for a successful 21st-cent tech business. Looking forward to working with you again soon 🙂
Well, I have all the best things to say here, because the team headed by Rorie and Rorie are the best people to work with. People are hand picked high achievers of the new age, and there is so much to learn from them. They take on complex missions and next thing you know it's on the national news.
I had the pleasure of working with Gro -Team. Rorie Devine was very professional in helping me find someone that can support my business. Would definitely recommend anyone looking for key skills to help support your business or startup.
