Testimonials

Janet Castle

Client since 2014 | The Castle Group, President

“After implementing Scaling Up, we’ve significantly improved our predictability. The planning and implementation management process helped us to shift our focus to semi-private companies which gave us more reliability and predictability in our project stream. With the One Page Strategic Plan™ and better projections and estimates, we see where gaps are and work to fill them proactively. Our top line has increased by 35%, our Gross Margin has stabilized and we’ve increased our Cash Flow too!”

Albert Busch

Client since 2010 | Datacolor

“Our work with Scaling Up best practices like Core Values and employee engagement, Strategic Planning, and Execution tools such as regular Meeting Rhythms and one to one’s have certainly been a big part of our results in the last decade. Datacolor’s top line has grown from $45M in 2009 to over $72M in 2017. Cash on hand has grown five times. And while the employee population has gone from 240 employees in 2009 to over 400, we’ve been able to achieve high engagement scores of 4 out of 5 on surveys while expanding our reach geographically with offices in 15 countries.”

Client since 2014 | Nielsen-Kellerman

“Nielsen-Kellerman’s growth rate has accelerated significantly in the last seven years, with a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) exceeding 12% and 2018 growth at 20%. And I’m confident we’ll double the company over the next few years. Our work with the Scaling Up tools and best practices that membership in CEO Think Tank® have brought to us have definitely contributed to that success!”

Alumni | The Hill at Whitemarsh

“Using the TopGrading approach to hiring and onboarding, has had a significant impact on our business and the quality of our new hires. We now have a robust and predictable screening and interview process, clear accountabilities and key performance indicators for each position, and new people know from the get go what’s expected of them. As a result, our leadership is more engaged, and we’re bringing the right people into the organization.”

“I have enjoyed working with you very much and I am grateful for the various ways that you have helped me and my business over the past several years. I know it isn’t easy to come into a strange environment and gain enough respect to have an impact, however, you did. Our business is stronger, more organized and effective as a result of the tools and skills that you have shared with us as well as your guidance along the way. Thank you for helping us to put the right team and plan in place to help us be successful going forward.”

“I just wanted to let you know how much I’m enjoying the leadership program. I’ve learned SO much, but even more than that, I feel empowered! Since the initial Mission to Mars email- I’ve left work every night feeling focused, balanced, and motivated. Even when projects get “hairy” I’m still not feeling stressed bc there’s a sense of a solid foundation in the works. I feel you have given us each a voice, as a group and as individuals- and we are being heard. It feels awesome!!!”
