Scaling Up Business Growth Workshop

H 2017-11-20_122701.jpg


PFCS co-hosted the world-renowned Scaling Up Business Growth Workshop all day on February 22nd, 2018 in Irvine, California. The workshop was for growth oriented business owners and managers (yes, attorneys are business people too). Our entire management team was in attendance. The point was to learn from people who have already grown businesses, how to scale up without all the drama associated with "reinventing the wheel" at every new stage of business development. These people have seen thousands of businesses accomplish what we are trying to do, and they created tools to make it less painful.

A Personal Message from Pete Fowler

You may have noticed that PFCS is growing. In addition to sending my kids off to college and completing an executive education program called Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses, we have been applying the Growth Tools that I learned about in Verne Harnishe's book called Scaling Up and in the "Scaling Up Business Growth Workshop" I attended in January. The point of all these tools is to create team alignment, greater revenue, profit, and high performance for your leadership team and the company at large. 

My "relationship" with Verne Harnish goes back to the time I founded this business. I dreamed of attending an executive education program that he founded called Birthing of Giants at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). But I needed to be doing at least $1 million in annual revenue to qualify. So I worked and worked until we reached that milestone, and not only did I apply and get accepted, I also joined the organization that Verne founded called Young Entrepreneurs Organization (YEO). That group has since lost the courage to kick out the people under 40, so it's called EO now, but it's still an awesome group well worth the time and money. I was a member for 10 years and the friends I made remain some of my closest, life-long friends. 

The business acumen I learned from these Vern Harnish programs, combined with good luck, hard-work, awesome staff, and tremendous force-of-will, have been the foundation of a really fun, interesting, and fulfilling life.

    Discussion by Pete Fowler (Not directly connected to the content of this program). 

    I am a planner. Surely, I could be FAR more efficient if I would just get to work sometimes. If you want to see what a crazy person I am about it, see The PFCS Weekly Planning Method, that I wrote. But planning has allowed me to go much further than my native talent would have otherwise allowed. And Gazelles Growth Tools are some of my current favorite planning tools. 

    Here is a quick summary of each Growth Tool that are included in the package: 

    1. One-Page Personal Plan (OPPP) 
    2. Function Accountability Chart (FACe)
    3. Process Accountability Chart (PACe)
    4. Strengths, Weaknesses, Trends (SWT) Worksheet
    5. 7 Strata
    6. One-Page Strategic Plan (OPSP)
    7. Vision Summary
    8. Who • What • When (WWW)
    9. Rockefeller Habits Checklist
    10. Cash Acceleration Strategies (CASh)
    11. Cash: The Power of One
