Is your company a start-up or a scale-up? 
Running a business in today's world is all about freedom. When there's alignment and a strategic plan, your company has the capacity to thrive.  

In his book Scaling Up, author Verne Harnish recommends focusing on three deliverables for building a company from a handful of employees to something significant: 
  1. Reduce the time it takes the executive team to manage the business by 80%. 
  2. Refocus senior leadership on market-facing activities.
  3. Realign everyone else to drive execution and result.
With regard to #2, many "market-facing activities" include listening and learning; engaging your customers, leaders and employees is a critical part of the strategic planning process. We've expanded our team with experts who can help you implement customer and employee research swiftly and conveniently. Contact Darcy Bien to learn more about our customized survey packages that will allow you to listen and learn.
