Are you running out of time? Can’t follow what’s being published and posted out there on strategy, entrepreneurship, business models and leadership? Growth Summit 2013 might just be your solution. On Thursday May 23rd, four thought leaders will come to Barcelona to provide lectures under the auspices of Verne Harnish ‘the Guru of fast growing companies.’ The focus is on making better People, Strategy, and Execution decisions, derived from the Gazelles International Coaches tools.
- The People part looks at how to get the right people doing the right things with clear accountabilities and metrics. Triggering questions will make you aware of this asset: Is everyone in your company pulling their own weight and contributing as they should? If you had to start the company all over tomorrow, would you enthusiastically rehire everyone on your team?
- The Strategy part focuses on making the right decisions: Do you have a solid top-line revenue growth strategy in place? Does everybody understands and knows how to follow the strategy?
- The Execution excellence must never be lost out of sight. Gazelles has an Execution Checklist of ten habits that will reduce by up to 80% the time it takes you to manage the business, freeing up leadership to spend more time on market-facing activities.
Growth Summit 2013 promises to be a day of interaction and learning. But from whom will you learn on this day?
