The challenges and growth pains of high growth businesses
“We knew HGKC normally work with businesses above our budget, but we knew that if we really were to meet our level of ambition, we needed to work with them. And within 6 months of starting, we have added 30% to our turnover, ” James Ewin, Director, The Orca Design Company
“I would recommend to any entrepreneur to consider High Growth Knowledge Company – it is money well spent,” Jason Matthews, CEO, Lifecycle Technology
“There is no question I would certainly recommend HGKC. I think if you are serious about building a business, then you need to put some serious time aside to planning and critiquing the journey and HGKC are a very useful and powerful team to inject energy behind that,” Debbie Lawley, CEO WillowDNA
Greiner’s Growth Model describes the evolution and revolution that organisations and businesses move through as they grow, and relates each phase to maturity and size. Each growth phase is made up of a period of relatively stable growth, followed by a “crisis” when major change is needed if the business is to continue growing.
We find the ‘Greiner Curve’ a useful way of thinking about the ‘pinch points’ businesses experience with growth. Getting detailed research data from ambitious, fast growing businesses, gaining a better understanding of the symptoms – the pains and challenges these companies are facing – and thinking about them in the context of Greiner’s crises, has helped us to develop our HGKC Growth Model™.
