Program: Surge and grow™

A program to help companies break through barriers to growth

A program to help companies break thru barriers to growth

As a company transitions in growth, firms face the following challenges

Does the owner have the “right people on the bus” for the future? Your first employees had the right attitude and skill set but do they have the right skills to help you scale now?

When volume/orders increase, systems may be stretched.  You can’t just turn up the volume on existing processes. You will need to reengineer or create new systems to meet the new demands, and train your people to follow the new processes.

You may be moving beyond your current customers to new, and different markets.  Should you keep your old customers? Upgrade them? How do you forecast revenue and profit in this dynamic environment?

" I liked the hybrid approach of Surge and Grow; online combined with in person was extraordinarily helpful. I have never experienced that approach before. "

– Amy Sherwood COO, IAAP, Portsmouth, NH
