“At our last strategic planning session, we realized we needed to do something else in addition to organic growth to meet our company’s five-year goals,” Dan* recently shared with me on the phone.
Like many middle market companies, organic growth was stagnant, and the company’s progress had plateaued. Dan saw the gap between where the company stood today, and his vision was a bit too wide to be met by the current initiatives alone. Fortunately, as we discussed, there are many options for growth including organic growth, external growth, minimizing costs, doing nothing, and exiting. All of these options could be used in conjunction or in any combination to develop a strategy that best suited his needs and goals.
