CEO Insights: Eye on Growth

Recent study of firms that are achieving growth has revealed some actionable results. This is the essence of the study.

Firms with conscious growth intentions, who ultimately achieve sustained growth, view success differently. Firstly, their CEOs are focused on the company’s ability to satisfy the needs of a wide range of stakeholders, including customers, employees and shareholders.

They view success as the accomplishment of a much broader range of goals including profitability but also customer satisfaction, employee happiness, shareholder goals, product/service quality and innovation.

To attain these goals the use of innovation, internationalisation, training, devolved decision-making and other sound managerial practices.

Growth oriented companies are more likely to delegate decision making; achieve sales from innovation; be larger; train staff; perform and grow more consistently.
