The Stages of Business

Curious about
what stage you fit in?

We'll walk you through the various stages of development, and help you pick the category that matches your stage best.
The moment you take a risk and work to meet your own needs.
A race for survival. You may have hired one person, but you are running the business.
You're focused on production and building cash flow.
Management by crisis. Your business walks & talks on its own, but cash flow is a concern.
You're developing professional teams to manage the business. Growth is your focus and innovation is rampant.
Young Adult
You're beginning to anticipate future outcomes, settling down and focusing on systems in a serious way.
Sales and profits are growing and your business is largely run by management.
Mid-life Evaluation
Things are beginning to break down and you're evaluating whether to rejuvenate systems and products, or age. Innovate or begin to die.
Breakdown begins to accelerate. A state of denial. You may play the victim and your attacks and blame are leading to your top talent leaving.
Organization is kept alive artificially through subsidization, systems, rules and policies but there's no innovation happening. You're not truly focused on serving the needs of the community.
