We’ve had several periods of growth at PPN UK and many of these have been aggressive.
For five consecutive years, we were in the top 2% of fast growth companies in the UK but it is not a journey for the faint hearted.
Businesses grow in a cyclical fashion – they need to step change, they need to restructure and teams can change entirely in a single 12-18 month period.
After two years of stability, high service levels and strong profits we decided to invest again and enter another aggressive growth curve.
What we did not expect was to achieve a year’s worth of growth in only eight weeks, it created a huge bottle neck and challenge.
Growth needs to be well-considered, strategic and for larger companies, forward funded. You need to take on the overheads of a large business before you have the revenue to justify them.
Higher revenues and more profits may also result in painful experiences, in service failures and short term damage to the business.
Slow and steady really does win the race.
