GROWTH is the number one priority for businesses and there are many motives for pursuing growth: investors want greater returns; businesses needs economies of scale; executives want to demonstrate their capabilities; and teams want opportunities for development. Ultimately though, growth is about sustainability and survival. Any business that does not seek out growth is likely to fade and disappear as new players and disruptors change the marketplace, meet shifting customer expectations and take market share.

If you want to remain relevant, then growth trumps all.

The No 1 Priority

Growth should be the number one priority of your businesses’ strategy, applying to the top and bottom lines. Both revenue and margin metrics must grow for a business to remain relevant in its marketplace as revenue growth without profitability doesn’t demonstrate a viable business model, nor does cost cutting to grow margins suggest success in the long-run.

Growth in your business comes in many forms, from organic strategies to accelerated growth models and at The B Hive, our vision is to help you future proof your business and for that, growth is the key.

What’s on the horizon?

We like to think about these things in terms of 3 horizons:

  • Horizon 1 – Defending and extending your core business
  • Horizon 2 – Exploring high potential and emerging growth opportunities
  • Horizon 3 – Identifying future strategically aligned offerings
