Plot a Course for Growth

Set a course | Define Your strategy | Plan the Milestones

Businesses often succeed through a combination of serendipity, perseverance and raw talent, however…

The arrogance of success is to think that what you did yesterday will be sufficient for tomorrow.
— William Pollard

To stay on track, drive focus and take your business forward, you need to periodically review your strategy and roadmap based on an understanding of:

An eye opening experience and really helpful to get an outsiders perspective on something that we’re too close to.
— Fil Cristaldi - Studio Culture
  • Where your headed and why it’s important.
  • How you plan to get there (steps, timing and sequence).
  • The competitive assets the business is built upon.
  • The trends, opportunities and threats you need to plan for.
  • The levers that drive profit in your business.
  • Which customers and opportunities will lead in the right direction (and which are an opportunistic distraction).


"Plot a Course for Growth" is designed to give you a fresh perspective on the direction and strategy for your business.  It will allow you to focus your time, energy and investments; drive the right kind of growth and ultimately build the value of your business.
