About My Business:


In the business world, a startup company usually starts off like a small bunch of 'guerillas' (highly-motivated ambitions), sharing a common objective (with limited resources), moving ahead speedily under harsh (business) conditions, seeking out the 'enemy' (competitors), fully absorbed in 'guerilla warfare' (winning over the competition). Each member is equipped with their respective specialized skillsets and contributes greatly to the overall success of the start-up company. Team members meet frequently and their Team leader will always share his plans & strategy at every opportunity to meet. The Team can react decisively & flexibly when faced with daily challenges. There is little chance of any miscommunications as every member in the small group knows exactly what is expected of them. As the company business grows, necessitating additional headcount to fulfil its commitment to customers, the company will be confronted with 'growing pains' as new headcount will bring about additional challenges in Team dynamics, increasing specialization of labour, miscommunications amongst team members and the need for more experienced & accountable middle-managment. Middle-management costs a lot to build and retain. As business increases, so does the urgent need for additional funding in capital. Processes & Procedures which existed within a flexible working environment will need to be formalized in a more rigid & disciplined manner. It is at this important stage of the organization's life-cycle that will determine whether the company will 'take-off the runway' to the next stage of growth or 'crash onto the ground causing premature death'. Different challenges will be encountered at each stage of the organization's life cycle. A well-informed leader will be able to circumvent a lot of the obstacles that come the way of a company from start-up to end.
