Growth Planning

Growth Planning refers to the set of activities employment social enterprises go through when exploring new horizons – which for some might be considering whether to start a new business line or launch a new product, while for others deciding whether to form a new partnership that will take sales or employment to a new level.

Growth Planning generally results in a growth plan, which, when done well, that will help the organization make clear decisions around how to allocate and sequence resources in a manner most aligned with its future goals. Growth plans will also help the organization communicate the ‘why’ behind its ambitions to key stakeholders, including staff, board members, and current or prospective funders. Learn more about how strategic growth planning can elevate an ESE to new heights.
