People have asked me more than once: What size of organization are you targeting in your marketing efforts?

I recently read The E-Myth Revisited and the author encouraged organizations to define organizational charts as well as policies and procedures at its inception. We believe the same goes for its “human element” and specifically leadership standardization.

 

Most company founders envision growing their company. Some companies grow faster than the founders’ expectations. It is best to be ready for that growth spurt opposed to taking a “go with the flow” approach. No matter whether you want your organization to have a culture or not, it will have a culture. The culture will be defined by its members. This is why it is critical for the company’s founder or founders to define the culture from the beginning. One of the keys to defining this culture is the type of leader that is hired and trained.

MYTH: Providing goods and services to the government means you have to wait forever to get paid.

FACT: Many government contracts are subject to the Prompt Payment Act which was enacted to ensure the federal government makes timely payments. Bills are to be paid within 30 days after receipt and acceptance of goods/services or after receipt of an invoice whichever is last. If a timely payment is not made, interest should be automatically paid.
