In this spirited talk full of real-life examples, Rob Bier will lay out the most common reasons companies struggle to scale, offering a clear diagnosis of what goes wrong at different stages and why.  He’ll then set out his proprietary ‘Smooth Scaling’ model that will give you key insights into how to scale your organization without friction.  If you are a leader in a high-growth company, you’ll definitely want to attend this talk so you understand what challenges lie ahead and how you can anticipate and avoid them.
