The Institute encourages organisations to scale up and hold leading niches within their industry or be the best in the world aligned to their purpose. We help companies grow and adapt to the disruptive change, offer high performance solutions to both local and international clients.
“High Quality, Practice Education”
The Scaling up Institute provides high quality, practice education, business support and networking to leaders of growth organisations – be they for profit or not for profits. We understand the phases of growth and the leadership challenges at each phase and we are there to help. The Institute through its programs and network meetings brings together like minded business leaders focused on scaling up their organisation.
“A World Class Program Designed for You”
The core of the program is a high quality, practical growth program delivered over 10 months and 60 hours of contact. We recognised that business leaders are busy therefore a 4 day immersion program leaving the leader to them unravel and apply the program is an obstacle to meaningful change. We have small focused interventions followed by 4 weeks of application and then take the next step. The meetings are structured but we encourage the sharing of ideas and experience and ideas. The program has sought out world class input to assist our leaders. The success of the program is attributed to the right balance of formal learning, collaborative learning, mentoring and then application and implementation.
Transformation is Key
Around 2007 there was a convergence of global trends that led to a tsunami for the global economy. The three macro-trrends were the global financial crisis, globalisation and the internet. The global financial crisis exposed many – both companies and countries. Compounding this was the global economy had gained traction, China became a major exporter and the manufacturing hub leaving many traditional industries shrinking and having to adjust. Global competition was the new norm and then the internet created a perfect storm. Significant debt to GDP still poses a challenge for many countries and corrective measures are frequently resisted. These factors set a new norm of constant and incessant change for both organisations and countries which we are now learning to cope with.
What We Do
The new normal has left many economies in stress and employment a challenge. Youth unemployment in developed economies is a significant issue and the manufacturing sector in many of these economies is no longer there to provide employment for, in many cases, these well educated people. Countries and governments are having to transition to a new normal and get companies to expand and scale up and create employment.
Leadership is the key. Level 5+ leadership needs to be developed and so does the expertise of the people for the new economy. The Scaling Up Institute is committed to providing the best-in-class practices to help organisations transition to the new environment and capture the rainbow of opportunity
