How do you see your business growth over time? Growth, all the high’s and low’s; learning lessons… Grow wisely, grow local and grow with independence
We chose growth as our first of 6 foundational messages; growth is the possibility of change. Inspire growth, try something today, right or wrong, there is growth to be had. Doing something with a CBA (Cost-to-Benefit) driven backlog is leading by change, scalable and ever present in a growth oriented, ‘next step’ business.
What is odd about growth? Anyone can grow, change or improve. We use a rather well known method for improvement, ideally we learn from both the scientific method, acknowledgment of failures and empirical evidence. Nothing new, nothing transformative from a business model perspective, we find successful change is steeply rooted in change, change based on what you know today; empirical evidence.
There are boat loads of studies, years management courses and years of learning to implement, work and excel in any one for the 15 flavors of Waterfall, Agile, Agile At Scale, Scrum etc etc. why so many? Yes, we recognize systems do require scaling from garage to enterprise. But, we beg to ask why? Why so many variants? The answer is simple, making a system fit your organization… Could be bad, good and down right ugly. Hire the right people, require skills beyond tasks to be completed, team members own work and complete work – hypothesize, test, learn and apply. Is it that simple? Yes, we think that it is.
Lastly, we think there is a pragmatic approach to incremental change or in this case incremental growth. Again, we will always say failures are terrible, but the difference here is the learning piece. Yes, if you fail and don’t learn; then yes it’s truly a loss. The sliver of light is the change that can come out of the the learning regardless of perspective. We think that is the micro-growth needed to improve your business no matter what size, level or challenge.
