Scale Exemplars

For each company that meets the inclusion criteria, we are developing a Company Profile that can be used as a Scale Exemplar – a document that makes explicit the most important things a company does to scale early and rapidly

The Company Profile (Scale Exemplar) has nine components:

  1. Image – a succinct statement that the company that has scaled uses to represent itself to the public
  2. Basics – tombstone information, overview, performance metrics, and achievements
  3. Sell – products and services the company sold to scale
  4. Competencies – what the company did very well to better competitors
  5. Channels – what the company did to find and secure customers, including what it gave away or sold at cost to attract customers
  6. Resources – assets, processes and priorities the company used to scale
  7. Assertions – set of assertions that best represent what the company did to scale early and rapidly
  8. References – sources of information provided
  9. Contributors – names of the people who contributed to the development of the company profile
