Ladder Stage


Companies which are clocking an average growth rate and want to move towards better growth need to analyze its capabilities, opportunities, competitive scenario and the vision, in order to set its strategic objective.

Ladder stage is when the organizations have to aim for reaching higher levels in business performance and organizational capabilities. Organizations have to leverage on the strengths they have built and sense the external opportunities and internal potential to forge ahead with business growth strategy. Organizations formulate growth strategies as a response to disruptions in the market place or to gain a competitive advantage to grow business or to push the business growth according to the goals set for the next couple of years. The ideal growth paradigm organizations must embrace is building the Growth Engine in the organization.

Organizations can evolve from being responsive to the growth opportunities to creator of growth opportunities. Growth phase needs both Stability and Agility in order to promote growth. Stability brings in consistency which in turn gives confidence to be agile in embracing challenges and risks to take up new opportunities.

Competitive Avantage -> Responsiveness to Disruptions -> Agility in Embracing Opportunity -> Creating Opportunities with Growth Engine

Development phase is about building organizational infrastructure and capabilities to achieve the strategic objective. Growth phase is the implementation of strategy across the organization with key strategic initiatives, plans and critical decisions, which brings in the growth for the organization as set by the leadership. Growth phase is when the organizations achieve their set goal but the organizations can reach the pinnacle only when they translate the success into profitability and operational excellence, which can be attained in the Profitability phase, ability to make profits.
This cycle of Development, Growth and Profitability in the ladder stage backed by Growth Engine is found in organizations’ strategic journey of becoming matured and visionary companies.
