Questions about the ScaleUp Hub process:
What is a 'growth company o/s'?
A growth company 'operating system' is a system to define strategy, plan to execute that strategy, create consistent profit and cash flow, and consistently hire the top performers. The Rockefeller Habits support by disciplines of priorities, data, and communication, provide the 'operating system' for growth companies.
Do I really need an 'o/S' for my company?
Everyone has a system, whether by design or default. The Rockefeller Habits and supporting methodologies are a proven system to enable growth companies to overcome the barriers to scaling up. Without a system designed for the purpose, scaling up is infinitely more difficult - and most do not succeed.
What if my company is different?
All growth companies share certain attributes. The barriers to scaling up are universal. The methods and tools provided through the ScaleUp Hub can be applied in any growth business.
How much time will implementation take?
It depends. Some organizations are so hungry for needed change that implementation can occur in 18-24 months. Others face layers of bureaucracy or dysfunctional cultures that require 36-60 months or more. The hungrier for new insight and coachable the team, the faster the implementation.
What if I lack the needed resources?
Resources are needed in two areas: people, and financial. We can help in both areas. If you face a lack of resources we can provide a basic analysis either highlighting potential resources to secure, or provide you access to a program that fits your budget.
Can I do this on my own?
Absolutely. You can do it faster and with potentially better results if you have a coach.
