Welcome to Do/ Scale/
Scaling up is something most founders aspire to, especially once the tricky start-up phase has been navigated. It can increase your reach and future proof your business. But how do you scale? And how does it differ from flipping for a quick profit or slower organic growth?
Les McKeown advises industry leaders on how to achieve scalable, sustainable growth. In Do Scale, he draws from his decades of experience to provide a clear understanding of what's involved, and the strategies needed to take your business (or not-for-profit) to the next level. You'll find out: What it means to scale and if now is the right time; Why founders need to get out of their own way ; How to develop winning teams; Your secret weapon for decision making.
With practical advice and clear guidance, Do Scale is an essential manual for anyone looking to grow a successful and sustainable organisation and turn it into something truly remarkable.

Meet Les McKeown
Les McKeown is the Founder and CEO of Predictable Success, and the author of 'Do Scale: A Roadmap to Building a Remarkable Company'.
Les first began to recognize recurring growth patterns early in his career as a serial entrepreneur. In addition to being involved in the launch of more than 40 companies before he was 35, he was at the same time a founding elder in a fast-growing church, while serving on the board of a number of charities and not-for-profits.
Les used the experience he gained during that time to co-found one of the first business incubators in the world, which he and his then business partner developed over a decade into a multi-national consulting company that advised on the creation and growth of hundreds of organizations worldwide.
Struck by the similarity of issues faced by all growing organizations, Les began to codify his understanding of the repeating patterns of growth, publishing his Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestseller "Predictable Success: Getting Your Organization On the Growth Track - and Keeping It There" in 2010, followed in 2012 by "The Synergist: How to Lead Your Team to Predictable Success" and in 2014 "Do Lead: Share your vision. Inspire others. Achieve the impossible".
Les is a trusted advisor to fast-growth SMEs and thriving not-for-profits as well as Fortune 500 companies and a number of the largest government agencies in the world.
