No matter the size of your company, every business is challenged by organizational, technological, and economic growth. The stages of a company’s maturity are fairly well defined—from start-up and small businesses to midsize businesses and multinationals. But it’s not always clear when a company moves from one stage to the next, and what steps need to be taken to support that growth.
