During this week's Accelerator session, Mark Fenwick drew on his extensive commercial experience as he demonstrated how to grow your organisation. His presentation of big questions to the whole group was balanced with valuable opportunities for small group discussions, where everyone could focus on what growth meant for them. And specifically what changes they would need to implement to make this happen.
Initially, a group exercise identified that all organisations are different, for example the number of staff doesn’t necessarily relate to turnover, or that being an older organisation doesn’t have to mean that you have more influence. This showed that all organisations have different aspects of their business that they want to grow. Mark emphasised that the key point is to identify exactly what it is that you want to grow, then think about what needs to change to create that growth. He urged everyone to remember that growth is all about change, and that it is impossible to grow by staying the same. more >
