With more than 250 full-time employees, you’ve achieved real scale. Whether you’re running a charity, foundation or trust, a cause-based or faith-based organization, or an NGO, it’s an incredible feat – congratulations!

Now, of course, the view from the peak you’ve just climbed reveals the next challenge: now you’re playing in the big league, and people everywhere are starting to take notice.

If you’re going to continue to grow, you need to perform at the very highest level, with little room for mediocrity or complacency.

Put simply, you sure as heck earned the right to be a big fish, but that’s no longer enough. You need to become the organizational equivalent of a killer whale – massive, but incredibly effective and efficient.

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 operational edge.

But the rewards are immense: You can truly change the world for good.

If you’re ready for the challenge, here are the ways you can use the Predictable Success model to make your move from ‘big fish’ to ‘killer whale’, ranging from no-cost, through low cost to more substantial investments that will radically accelerate the pace of growth in your NFP:

Step 7

Finally, if you’re truly serious about changing the world, you can’t afford to miss our flagship annual conference, ScaleCon. Two days of cutting edge teaching in the most advanced scaling techniques and strategies, and a chance to network with 100 of your peers.
