About the Course

Business growth is not linear and follows a pattern of successive “S-Curves.” Businesses see sharp growth for a few years when the right ingredients are in place. Still, despite doing the same set of things, growth seems to flatten out and returning to consistent, sharp growth becomes hard.

To grow, businesses must break out of the current orbit and find the next orbit or the next “S-curve.” The irony is that what worked well and propelled the business in one orbit often does not work in the next orbit, and businesses must change and do different things to grow. While the need to transition from one S-curve to the next happens regularly in businesses, every such transition is hard.
