What kills growth
Feb 4, 2020  |  Kenelm Tonkin


99% of business owners miss the Systemize Phase.

And that kills any future attempt to scale.

If you don’t prepare for the 2X, 5X, 10X revenue growth you hope for in the Scale Phase by documenting how you want your business to run in the Systemize Phase, you’ll never achieve that rapid growth.

Rackspace has a documented system for handling its help desk.

LinkedIn had a documented system for acquiring Glint.

GE has documented systems for absolutely everything!

Why is it that systemized corporations are large and unsystemized businesses are small?

Why are so many businesses small?

Most business owners don’t know they need to systemize their operations.

The ones who’ve heard this idea mostly don’t know how to do it.

The Systemize Phase is the missing step. It’s the bridge between the chaotic Startup Phase and the high-growth Scale Phase.

It’s not an unnecessary distraction delaying your urge to scale. Actually, it’s your blueprint for scaling success.

You need to systemize your business before you scale it.
