This month our topic is:

The Stages of Organizational Growth:  What Are the Predictable Growth Cycles?

Many companies like to grow in staff from small to medium, to large – but what are the predictable cycles at each point in this journey? Come join us as COATD member and local expert, Richard Needles, shares the stages of organizational growth. He will also cover:

  • the classic stages of organizational growth from start up to maturity with an emphasis on the transitions and risks
  • the Greiner Growth Curve, its current relevancy and product life cycles
  • the implications of financial predictions and
  • the critical talent management issues as organizations evolve

Come prepared with questions and/or share what you know!
