Aspire to exponential growth
In 6 weeks we will audit your company's operation and report how you can tweak it for exponential growth.
Our Blueprint Growth Audit™ is conducted at three levels of your enterprise:
Your company's growth essentials (strategy)
Your sales structure, systems and tools (operations)
Your sales team's actual selling ability (skills & knowledge)
We use proprietary technology and interviews to collect information efficiently. Observations are compared to patterns seen in the top 5% of high-growth companies. We create a triangulated benchmark on your strategy, operations and skills, and present this to your executive team with a blueprint for change to place your company on a proven path to exponential growth.

The 7 habits of highly successful companies
From Zero to a Billion
The Inflection Point
Big Data analytics allows us to unlock previously hidden patterns. Our colleague, the late David G. Thomson, analyzed 20 years of stockmarket data to learn how many start-ups made it to an IPO then one billion in revenue, and if success was random or the result of doing certain things.
The study uncovered that high-growth companies all follow 7 habits. Importantly, when under-performing companies take the same actions, they turnaround and achieve the same pattern of growth.
This is the holy grail for business.
It's the blueprint that prompted U.S. President Barack Obama to
sign the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act into law.
Banks and venture capitalists use the blueprint to evaluate
which companies will produce the best rate of return.
Investors and fund managers use the blueprint as a predictive
indicator to invest early in the next wave of market leaders.
Leaders of established companies use our blueprint to
benchmark their enterprise, tap potential and grow with less risk.
Here's what we do for you
We will run a health check on your sales, marketing & operations.
Objective observation is made without baggage, politics or agenda.
As a fresh set of eyes, we report back to your executive team.
Then we'll show you how to unlock growth like never before.
