Organise your company for growth

A strategic problem many businesses face is their company is not organised for growth. As companies grow, an organisation can become inflexible and slow to respond.

Organise your company for growth


Does your existing management structure create a dynamic and responsive company?


At The Alpha Group we make certain that you as the business leaders, they design your new organisation to achieve growth.

So, how does this happen?

Easy, its a six step-process using the power of the peer-to-peer advisory board.


Firstly the peer-to-peer advisory board help you identify what is your strategic problem.

Often they have grown your current company by focusing on an attractive, profitable niche with one or two services and products for this niche. They operate in one geographic location with relatively few customers. your company is probably organised in a traditional, functional way i.e. they have 4 or 5 main departments (e.g. sales, operations, technical and finance), each with clear roles and accountabilities.

However, they want your company to achieve massive growth. They want to substantially scale your company from its current situation into a much more valuable company.

The strategic problem is that to significantly scale up your company, your current organisations are not flexible or responsive enough for the substantial growth they want.

We look specifically at your Flexibility (i.e. your attitude to change your business) your Responsiveness (i.e. your speed of response to your customers changing needs) and your Ability to implement (i.e. your ability make things happen internally within your business).

Secondly the peer-to-peer advisory board help you identify your three key FastGrowth™ drivers.

They identify, over the next 2-3 years which of the following FastGrowth™ drivers they need to significantly increase in order to double the value of your company? Looking at your existing and desired numbers for each of the following categories show you which are your main opportunities.

1 Market niches

2 Different types of customers

3 Customers

4 Customers who refer on

5 Products & services

6 Geographic areas (in one country)

7 Markets in other countries

8 Distribution channels

9 Business locations

10 Strategic alliances

11 Employees

12 Online businesses

13 Licenses

14 Out-sourced partnerships

Identifying the top three gives you a clear plan for growth.

Thirdly the peer-to-peer advisory board help you design your new organisations to create this growth.

They look at four factors: The Design of the Organisation, The Key Features of the Design, The Potential Advantages of the Design, and The Potential Disadvantages of the Design.

We then look at the four types of organisation design:

1 Organisation by Function

• Functions are separated one from the other

• Vertical hierarchy

• Clear roles and accountabilities

• Simple to operate

• But possibly slow response to changes in products and customers

2 Organisation by Products or by Services

• Daily operating decisions are decentralised

• HQ co-ordinates strategies

• Fast response to changes in your products or services

• But possibly leads to an “Us and you” product or service rivalry

3 Organisation by Customers or by Markets

• Account Managers & your multidisciplinary teams are supported by HR & Financial staff

• Fast response to changes in your customers or markets

• But possibly Managers may find it difficult to get used to this organisational design

4 Organisation by Geographic Areas

• Daily operating decisions are decentralised

• HQ co-ordinates strategies

• Fast response to changes in your geographic areas

• But possibly leads to an “Us and you” geographic rivalry

From this, you are able to select which organisational design is most appropriate for your company for the next 2 years. (The most appropriate design may be an intelligent mix of several of these designs).

Lastly the peer-to-peer advisory board help you evaluate the benefits of your chosen organisational design and take massive action.

The profound impact on you and your company of organising your company for growth is that within 18 months your new organisation is the key to your company growth and performance.
