Futurism.com

Alright, love-hate time. This source is the breathless fanboy of technological advance. Highly-visual format, interesting infographics, but sensational, click-bait headlines. Put up with it, and the Toyota Prius-sponsored reality-video pieces, and there is good stuff underneath. I roll my eyes often, but I do scan it.


Input from my colleagues in the ExO Network 

I asked my colleagues what they were following, and discovered a range of other sources.

Tech.EU – a European-focus tech newsletter, covering some of the more obscure emerging markets outside the major EU tech centers. Recommended by Pedro Pinho.

The Millennium Project – Founded in 1996 after a three-year feasibility study with the United Nations University, Smithsonian Institution, Futures Group International, and the American Council for the UNU. It is now an independent non-profit global participatory futures research think tank of futurists, scholars, business planners, and policy makers who work for international organizations, governments, corporations, NGOs, and universities. Recommended by Evonne Heyning, Paul Epping

Future of Life Institute – With an advisory board that includes Stephen Hawking, Elon Musk, Morgan Freeman, Alan Alda, the co-founder of Skype and others, it is worth a visit for certain. “We are currently focusing on keeping artificial intelligence beneficial and we are also exploring ways of reducing risks from nuclear weapons and biotechnology.” Recommended by Paul Epping

Singularity Hub – published by Singularity University, Singularity Hub chronicles technological progress by highlighting the breakthroughs, players, and issues shaping the future as well as supporting a global community of smart, passionate, action-oriented people who want to change the world. Recommended by Evonne Heyning

The Economist Technology Quarterly – deeper analysis in plain language. Recommended by Nicole-Anne Boyer

Sites requiring a bit of sifting for the good stuff

As recommender, Eduardo Labarca points out: “Please consider that today there are a lot of “science” websites that distort news only to get more readers. We should filter and evaluate.” Great reminder!

Medium – Every day, thousands of people turn to Medium to publish their ideas and perspectives. Leaders. Artists. Thinkers. And ordinary citizens who have a story to tell. Posts range from scrutinies of world affairs to deeply personal essays. Medium sifts the best of these for you and delivers them directly onto your home page. Recommended by Tony Manley, who comments: Although the articles on Medium can be varied, the good ones tend to bubble up to the top pretty quickly. They often provide useful insights from people working with the technologies. Obviously, you need some idea of what you are looking for in order to get the best out of it.

Quartz – Quartz is a digitally native news outlet, born in 2012, for business people in the new global economy. Our coverage of this new global economy is rooted in a set of defining obsessions: core topics and knotty questions of seismic importance to business professionals. These are the issues that energize our newsroom, and we invite you to obsess about them along with us. Recommended by Evonne Heyning.

The Right “Vehicle” for Business Growth

Mae and Bob’s Business Growth Stalls

“I may as well be playing Whack-a-Mole” said Mae. “This stopped being fun a while ago.”

Mae (not her real name) was beside herself with frustration as she described the situation. Over 15 years ago, she and her husband, Bob, (not his real name, either) left their careers in broadcasting to build state-of-the-art videoconference facilities and events for corporations. They had grown their company to $15 million dollars annual revenues with respectable margins, relying on a combination of three anchor corporate clients, a gift for finding the best technical staff, and an incredible work ethic.

But over the last two years, revenue had plateaued and stubbornly refused to budge. Worse, initiatives intended to restart revenue growth were eating up profits, time and energy, and were causing unintended consequences that undermined any temporary gains.

“We underestimated how rapidly equipment prices would fall – when we started, a 4K resolution video camera rented for $3,000/day – now 4k is available in a $200 webcam.”

She shook her head. “We underestimated how quickly the cheap, low-end cloud-based services would improve. Zoom is eating corporate share from the expensive systems we sell, for $12 / person / YEAR in volume.

“Mostly, we failed to anticipate the millenials’ shifting attitudes toward big, in-person meetings – they’re fine with seeing 24 faces arranged in tiles on their laptop screens. Who needs boardrooms with custom videoconference setups?? We got complacent living off a premium market that is now evaporating.

“Bob isn’t coming out and saying it, but I know he is increasingly stressed about our personal financial situation. We’re in that perfect storm of kids entering college, parents aging a little too rapidly, and we’re behind in saving for retirement because everything is tied up in the business.”

She was quiet for a moment, then: “Bob and I have been a great team for as long as I can remember, but I won’t lie – we’ve been pretty abrupt with each other, with our staff, and with everyone in our families. We started our own business for the freedom it gave us to raise our family. Now, though, the price we’re paying – that our family is paying – is too high.”

Mae and Bob’s critical mistake was in believing that one business model, or ‘growth vehicle’ would take them as far as they wanted to grow, for as long as they wanted to grow.

A Vehicle for Business Growth?

You choose a vehicle – sports car, moving van, moped, snowmobile, earthmover – to match the mission ahead. Each vehicle has a different top speed, fuel economy, terrain requirements, hauling capacity and so on. Make the right choice and you not only deliver the goods on-time and on-budget, you enjoy the ride!

Business growth is much the same. Different stages of business growth demand different business models or “vehicles for growth” Growing from startup through $1 million revenues and 5 people requires a completely different set of characteristics (people, strategy, execution, cash) than growing a company from $50 million revenues and 120 people through an IPO (Initial Public Offering).

If you choose the wrong growth vehicle for the mission, or fail to change vehicles when the terrain changes, then you won’t enjoy the ride!

The Wrong Growth Vehicle

How might you tell if you are using the wrong vehicle or business model for your stage of growth?

  • Revenue growth slows despite your best efforts
  • Profits decline
  • Your best clients start shopping around
  • Your best employees update their LinkedIn profiles
  • Your banker takes increasing interest in your financials
  • Everything seems to take more effort but yields a diminishing return
  • Like Mae and Bob, your frustration and personal stress are increasing
  • You no longer enjoy the ride.

The Right Growth Vehicle(s)

Designing your optimal vehicle for growth is not a one-and-done thing. This is the art of Scaling Up a business. You are constantly evolving your strategies, models and execution plans, informed by and interacting with the environment and markets around it. Don’t think of a single vehicle or business model, rather a roadmap of current and future business models, all evolving and ready when you need them.

The good news is that the PROCESS for designing, managing and evolving your growth vehicles is actually quite consistent and straightforward, and is fueled by an owner’s vision, persistence and unending hunger to learn.

There are quite a few good processes out there, but for our small and mid-market business clients, Ann and I trust and recommend the Scaling Up Business Growth Process, created by Verne Harnish and adopted by over 20,000 organizations worldwide.

Biomimicry – How Nature is Inspiring Radical Innovation

How can Biomimicry help my product or service gain a competitive edge?

Nature has already solved virtually every problem that humans are facing and in considerably better ways than anything humans have achieved.

Biomimicry is a rapidly growing design discipline that provides breakthrough strategies for solving business and technical challenges. At the center of this growing movement has been award-winning inventor and biomimetic entrepreneur Jay Harman, author of The Shark’s Paintbrush: Biomimicry and How Nature is Inspiring Innovation.

A 2013 Fermanian Institute report determined that by 2030, bioinspiration could account for $1 .6 trillion in total GDP, including $425 billion of US GDP. Savings in reduced resource depletion and pollution could amount to an additional $0.5 trillion worldwide.

There is not a business or product today that can’t improve profits, reduce liability, or solve intractable problems through the application of biomimetics.

“The Shark’s Paintbrush reveals how nature is inspiring design to be more efficient, effective, resilient, and beautiful.

In Nature’s 3.8 billion years of design experience, the roughly 99% of designs that didn’t work got recalled by the Manufacturer. The 1% that survived can teach profound lessons about how things should be made, how they work, and how they fit.

Jay Harman’s immersion in and curiosity about the natural world have made him one of the best biomimetic designers. The Shark’s Paintbrush is a masterly field guide for all designers and entrepreneurs who aspire to help the world of the made work like, and live harmoniously with, the world of the born.”

10 Questions: Company Health Check

Elevate Your Game!

You work hard, you’ve invested in growth and yet you still feel like there’s opportunity to elevate your company’s performance. What’s missing? How can you amplify your game?

Below are 10 questions to help you assess your company’s overall health and readiness to scale up:

1. Do you have a clearly written and communicated CORE PURPOSE, shared by everyone?

2. What are your CORE VALUES? How well do you reinforce them throughout employee hiring and development?

3. Can everyone on the team articulate how your business makes money, and how they influence the bottom line?

4. Does your whole team know your 1, 3 to 5 and 10-year targets?

5. Who is your CORE CUSTOMER and are you reaching them effectively?

6. What 3 – 5 attributes differentiate you from your competition?

7. Do you have the right people in the right seats?

8. Do all team members have priorities with KPIs that are tracked weekly, quarterly and annually?

9. Do you have a MEETING RHYTHM that keeps your teams synchronized, focused, learning, aligned and motivated?

10. Do you have a ONE-PAGE-STRATEGIC-PLAN, and is your team aligned around it? Is it yielding the growth you want?

If you are struggling to answer any of these questions (or you don’t like your answers), we can help.

What is the Scaling Up Business Growth Workshop?

 

Fast-growing companies ― not small ones or big ones ― create almost all the jobs and innovation in our economy, and Verne Harnish has been an invaluable guide to leaders of such companies, like me. Scaling Up helps us put in place the disciplines critical to building a significant business.”

Graham Weston, Chairman and CEO, Rackspace (NYSE: RAX)

  • 2x or more cashflow
  • 3x industry profitability
  • Valuation increase compared to the competition

The Scaling Up Business Growth Workshop is a one-day hands-on session where we introduce the four major decision areas every company must get right: People, Strategy, Execution, and Cash. You and your leadership team will invest a full, productive day focusing ON your business rather than IN your business.

What’s your Critical Number THIS Quarter?

How Home Care Assistance Tackled a Bottleneck to Business Growth

What TOP “bottleneck” or choke point keeps you from scaling up your business in a meaningful way?

Bottlenecks are often resistant to simple hacks and half-measures. Removing your biggest bottlenecks is an ALL HANDS EFFORT, and takes SINGLE-MINDED FOCUS for a FIXED PERIOD to CHANGE THE SYSTEM.

Lori Wengerd, Owner and President of Home Care Assistance Columbus, is setting out to change the way the world ages. Her firm provides premier live-in and hourly care for older adults to ‘age in-place’. Last fall, she determined that her biggest bottleneck to growth was the frequency with which her caregivers needed to reschedule their work at short notice (“call-offs”). While clients continued to receive great service, handling each call-off was costly to the organization in many ways. If not addressed, growing the business and adding caregivers would only make the situation worse.

The Critical Number is simply a business measure or KPI that tracks early and ongoing progress removing the big bottleneck. Leaders set a Company Annual Critical Number and supporting Company Quarterly Critical Number. In a given quarter, EVERYONE is focused on ONE THING to help scale up the company.

Lori attended our one-day Scaling Up Business Growth Workshop in October, 2016, where she built a One Page Strategic Plan™, and set a Critical Number for Quarter 4, 2016 – “percentage of call-offs” – measured weekly. In the balance of the quarter, Lori and her team reduced weekly percentage of call-offs by as much as 75%, seriously reducing internal drama and opening new opportunities for profitable growth!


Lori reports: “I regularly read books on business growth and am good at implementing ideas that fit my business model. However, it wasn’t until I attended the Scaling Up Course led by Jon Iveson and Gary Ralston that I finally learned how to put a plan in place that is both solidly grounded in core business values and fluid in its implementation.

In the short time since I attended, I’ve already led my team to undertake dramatic shifts in our planning process, and improve staff accountability and bottom-line performance.”


The Scaling Up Business Growth Workshop focuses on the four major decision areas every company must get right: People, Strategy, Execution, and Cash. You and your leadership team will invest a full, productive day focusing ON your business rather than IN your business.

You will receive a series of powerful, simple one-page tools, including the One-Page Strategic Plan™ and the Rockefeller Habits Checklist™, which more than 40,000 firms around the globe have used to scale their companies successfully – many to $1 billion and beyond.
