Are you grappling with the curse of growth?

You know what that is. Your business is growing, but as you move to the next revenue milestone, you realize that the strategies that got you to Point A aren't the ones that'll get you to Point B, or the ones that got you to Point B aren't the ones that'll get you to Point C, and so on. It's a good problem to have, but a problem nonetheless.

At certain growth intervals, you're forced to confront the specter of whether you have the horsepower to get to the next level in terms of talent, geography, service offering, resources, infrastructure, capital and the like. The growth strategies that work for a $5MM company will not get you to $10MM, those for a $15MM company will not get you to $25MM. It’s an immutable law of business in the IT industry.

The simple truth is that IT services executives have to be constantly looking ahead two and three years. Ours can be an unkind industry for those without a forward-looking growth imperative, because if you’re not growing, you’ll soon find yourself on the wrong side of prosperity. It’s an industry in which the impediments to growth are inherent in the very dynamism that is Information Technology. More

Growth is not a divine right. It has to be planned for objectively and executed relentlessly, skillfully. The time to prepare for this is not when you slam into a revenue plateau, but long before. Ideally it shouldn’t be about changing your vision, your focus, your specialization. It should be about how to complement your vision with new strategies that advance your cause. How and what your new  growth strategies ought to be depends on a number of factors, but may include mergers and acquisitions, adding new offices, new channels, new partners, getting into adjacent markets or services, revamping your sales and marketing apparatus, or your delivery system.

Helping IT services companies grapple with the curse of growth is what we do. For those companies not growing, the story is the same; we can help you as well.

Now, please enjoy the rest of your visit with us by listening to what a number of IT luminaries have to say about the industry, probing the various growth strategies we employ, availing yourself of our literature … and, of course … giving us a call.
