ScaleX™ Accelerator programme

What is the
Accelerator programme?

The ScaleX™ Accelerator Programme is a 12-month programme for leaders of SMEs based on the 10 principles of the ScaleX™ framework – the most holistic and comprehensive framework for scaling globally.

The programme is delivered by Scaling Specialists who have been through the scaling journey with their own businesses and want to help others achieve the same.

Throughout the Programme, they’ll break down the mysteries and complexities of scaling, helping you develop the right thinking, environment and essential systems required for accelerated growth.

OUR WHY

SMEs are the lifeblood of our local and national economies. They provide essential jobs, create valuable products and services and generate income that greatly benefits the local community.
Sadly, less than 2% of the estimated 400m SMEs globally ever achieve scale despite their huge benefits.

WHO IS IT FOR

We don’t discover powerful leaders, we help people in leadership positions unlock the power of their own voice.

Leading a business can be a very isolating job. Leaders seeking to scale their business can sometimes struggle with their personal ‘why, how, and what?’. Often, it’s the internal fears, self-doubt and a sense of isolation that hold them back, which in turn holds their business back.

Some say that to build a business, you need to sacrifice your personal time, health, and relationships. We don’t agree with this. Our belief is that to scale a business, you need to build the leader. And to build a leader, you start by building the person.

ScaleX™ Framework

The Accelerator programme is built on the ScaleX framework.We are building a thriving community of business leaders around the world and a scale up movement centred on the most comprehensive, holistic framework for organisational scaling – the ScaleXTM 10 Principle Framework. 10 timeless principles of scaling that can be readily implemented by SME leaders to deliver long-term, repeatable, sustainable growth.

01
Psyche

When you learn how to master the right psyche to achieve your scaling ambition, your success becomes not merely possible or probable…it becomes inevitable.

02
Purpose & vision

A meaningful purpose, joyfully formed and articulately expressed by you is the first and most critical step towards creating the results you want. Let us show you how to do this with eloquence and finesse.

03
People

When the right people are intrinsically and emotionally invested in your purpose and vision they will bring their brains, bodies and their hearts to work.

04
Plan

Deliberate action against your most important priorities, coupled with grit and perseverance against a well-informed plan, will enable you to strive for extraordinary scaling

05
Processes

Learn how to build smart and simple processes and systems, automating as much as possible to keep your business operationally fit for scaling.

06
Performance

Identifying and monitoring the right key performance metrics will help you to understand what you need to do to become better, faster and more efficient than you were before

07
Proposition

Developing a clear articulation of your company’s competitive strength in the eyes of your customers is key to steering you away from the complexity trap…

08
Place

You will learn to embrace the challenges of accessing new markets which will make you raise your game and enhance your opportunities to grow both professionally and personally.

09
Partnerships

Entering into a strategic partnership
is an attractive way to accelerate your scaling business and increase your reach beyond what would have been possible by going alone

10
Positive Growth Culture

Learn how to intentionally create and sustain the right system of behaviours for your people to follow which will enable you to realise your scaling ambition.

Insights + Roadmap

Often, when we get too close to the problems that exist in our business it becomes easy to get lost in the weeds. Working collaboratively with you, we undertake an in-depth MRI of your business against our ScaleXTM framework. Not only does this provide us with the insight to fully understand how we can support you on your scaling journey, but our expertise frequently unearths solutions to problems that have appeared intractable for decades. As a result of the MRI, we will provide you with a scaling roadmap that you can share with your wider team highlighting the priorities to focus on first.
