Scaling Up Business is all about how a few companies make it...and why the rest don’t. Our podcast shows are drawn from the lessons of our coaching clients, coaching partners, and the leading authors that contribute to our Conferences and the Scaling Up best selling book by Verne Harnish, and the Team at Gazelles.
We’ll share practical tools and techniques for building an industry-dominating business. These approaches have been honed over three decades of advising tens of thousands of CEOs and executives and helping them navigate the increasing complexities that come with scaling up a venture.
We want to turn what can feel like an anchor, into the wind at your back — helping you create a business where the team is engaged; the customers are doing your marketing; and everyone is making money.
Each episode of the Scaling Up Business show focuses on one of the four major decision areas every company must get right: People, Strategy, Execution, and Cash. We'll share the tools and methods that have been used by more than 40,000 firms around the globe to scale their companies successfully -- many to $1 billion and beyond.
Running a business is ultimately about freedom. The Scaling Up Business show tells leaders how to get their organizations moving in sync, to create something significant, and still enjoy the ride.

Tuesday’s Tips — Dashboards and KPIs
Are you having trouble getting your team’s performance up? Do you feel like you’re working -on- things, but you can’t see the real tangible results?
Bill worked with a client a few years ago, but something that really stood out was the way they utilized whiteboards across executive leadership as well with their own middle management teams.
Every area had a whiteboard and everyday each team would huddle up around the whiteboard and a staff member would take ownership for what was on the board for that day.
It became a team activity to grab different colored markers and to update the board on what was going well, and what wasn’t. This allowed for everyone to tap into their competitive drive and hold the whole team accountable.
