Growth: The Introduction

February 10th, 2007 · 1 Comment

I have been fortunate to be part of rapidly growing companies throughout my career, and it’s happening again.   

Growth is fun.  With growth comes opportunity — often, opportunity to show what you can really do. 

Growth is perilous.  With growth comes new expectations, new responsibilities, public exposure of warts, new processes (as “winging it” fails to cut it anymore), and a general raising of the stakes.

Digipede is growing, at a pace that is generating plenty of fun, opportunity, and peril.

I have in mind a series of posts about entepreneurship and growth, but I’ll never get it all done.  But I’ve seen a few examples lately outside of my own company, and I’m trying to learn some lessons, so I’m at least going to start.  Let’s see how far we get.
