Phil has guided me on a sustained period of growth both personally and within the business.

Prior to working with Phil, we were just ticking along with minimal plans for growth or the future. Since working with him, our turnover has doubled, we’ve increased our staff numbers and are still growing and recruiting to ensure continued and sustained growth. The business is much more structured and we have a strong grip on finances and the future plans. This is almost completely due to the systems and processes that Phil has helped us adopt.

My thoughts on how to Scale up for Success - Phil Budd

Growing your business is a significant challenge during normal times. Still, when opportunity knocked for thrivers of the pandemic, scaling-up was even more of a challenge with lockdowns looming, remote working imposed and supplier capabilities unknown. There were more than the usual moving parts to consider.

Aligning business strategy with organisational capabilities needed to be thoroughly mapped out, but time was of the essence.

How can you bring in large amounts of people, get them on board and productive quickly?

How can you ensure quality control if you go from producing 10,000 units per day to 100,000 units per day overnight?

Can your suppliers cope with increased demand?

Will your cashflow flow?

So many questions needed answering and fast, but one question must remain constant throughout the process: Can you scale effectively without having a detrimental effect on your core business?
