How To Survive the Threat of Success: Sustainably Managing Organizational Growth

Monday, 27 March, 2017 - 11:00

Success is great, but rapid growth without proper structures can lead to the demise of an organization. You might run out of human resources, business resources, or the ability to manage the operational side of your enterprise. As a result, you lose clients. 

This session will focus on tools and methodologies to help you sustainably grow your language business. 

1. Invest in the right human resources. Carefully pick people that will help you establish sound structures. 
2. Manage the flow of information. Fight the toxic tendency to hoard knowledge and compartmentalize. 
3. Raise commercial awareness among team members and align them to seek the organization’s success.
4. Set up transparent, end-to-end company-wide systems to manage processes and store multidisciplinary knowledge.
