You’re Flying High – Can You Go Higher? Or Will Gravity Get You?
Leading your charity, trust or foundation, NGO, faith- or cause-based organization is challenging but gratifying, and you’re not doubt learning a lot both about managing a huge organization and yourself in the process – congratulations!
Now the trick is to defy gravity: The painful truth is that most organizations begin to lose momentum when they achieve scale.
Decision-making starts to slow down and become bureaucratic. Innovation becomes patchy and unpredictable. Nimbleness and flexibility start to fossilize, and risk-avoidance begins dominating key decisions.
The challenges are immense: Consolidating the systems and processes that got you here without becoming bureaucratic; institutionalizing innovation without losing nimbleness; pushing vision and culture deep without losing your execution edge.
But the rewards are immense: Maintaining growth even at scale, building a legacy, changing the world in whatever sphere your NFP operates in.
If you’re ready for the challenge, here are the ways you can use the Predictable Success model to ensure you beat the pull of gravity, ranging from no-cost, through low cost to more substantial investments that will radically accelerate the pace of growth in your business:
